Coach in ice hockey is the person responsible for directing the team during games and practices, prepares strategy and decides which players will participate in games.
The specific responsibilities of a coach vary according to the level at which they are coaching. For example, unique to coaching at the professional level, coaches need to have skills in dealing with the media. At the professional level, as each game is given great importance, a coach will analyse past games and prepare for future games. Coaches also are important in determining the style of hockey the team plays. While winning is a primary responsibility at the professional level, at the other extreme of minor hockey, teaching is given greater importance. In the case of coaching of youth hockey, while strategy and tactics are still required, there would be the added responsibility of teaching fundamental skills and the rules of the game, providing a fun and safe environment, developing character, teaching physical fitness and the ability to communicate in a positive manner.
