The Aurora (Labrador City) - - Front Page - BY GARY SHAW

Mi­nor hockey in Labrador West is a large and im­por­tant part of the cul­ture of the com­mu­nity.

There are vol­un­teers who com­mit end­less hours to bring to­gether the com­po­nents nec­es­sary to de­liver a qual­ity mi­nor hockey or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Shawn Dyke is one of those lo­cal peo­ple with his feet on the ground for the kids in mi­nor hockey.

Dyke is the tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor of the Labrador West Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion. He over­sees all lo­cal coaches from Novice to Mid­get age groups in­clud­ing the fe­male teams.

Re­cently Gary Dove, provin­cial coach­ing co-or­di­na­tor of Hockey New­found­land and Labrador, came to Labrador West and held a hockey coaches train­ing clinic at the Alvin Pow­ell Arena in Wabush.

Dove held a clinic with some lo­cal coaches pro­vid­ing a course that sees them cer­ti­fied at the na­tional level. This par­tic­u­lar ses­sion was an en­try-level clinic for the coaches with fur­ther train­ing to fol­low in the fu­ture.

This pro­gram and those that will fol­low is hoped to help coaches de­liver qual­ity train­ing to play­ers on an on­go­ing ba­sis.
