Dr. Carrington is a renowned psychologist, hockey Mom, coach and resident Albertan. Her work focuses on reconnection as the key to healthy relationships and productive teams and the importance of acknowledging each other as a starting point.
“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Carrington to the Hockey Alberta Summit,” said Drew Dixon, Hockey Alberta’s Manager of Member Services. “After being unable to gather over the last couple years, the Summit is a way for our Members to connect with each other and collaborate. Dr. Carrington’s message - “Reconnecting Community” - very much aligns with what we’re trying to achieve and is sure to build the foundation for the entire weekend.”
The Summit runs from June 10-12 at the Cambridge Hotel in Red Deer. Open to Hockey Alberta Members, the summit aims to bring the leaders of amateur hockey together for a weekend of community, collaboration and innovation.
Dr. Carrington heads a list of presenters who will be discussing topics affecting administration, development and officiating in the game. Besides reconnection, Summit session topics include: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, conflict resolution, selling our sport, parent education, coach and player development plans, intro to hockey model, the U11 model and best practices across the province.
Saturday night will feature comedian Todd Ness, and a closing keynote speaker (to be announced at a later date) will cap off the weekend on Sunday.
Attendees are invited to arrive early for the Summit Golf Tournament in support of the Hockey Alberta Foundation at the Innisfail Golf Club on Friday, June 10. It is a nine-hole, four-person “schamble” with a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Entry fee is $100 per person that includes food and prizes.
