Hockey Manitoba is offering virtual and in-person clinics for the 2022 – 2023 season.
*** The coaching certification deadline for the 2022 – 2023 season is Friday January 13, 2023.
** If you are a rostered team official (coach, manager, safety person, etc.) for the current season, please familiarize yourself with the Certification Requirements for your position and ensure these are completed in advance of the deadline. We would also encourage you to review regulation K. 9 found on page 121 of the Hockey Manitoba Constitution, Regulations and Rules of Competition.
All coaches registering for a Coach 1 – Intro to Coach or Coach 2 – Coach Level clinic must complete the Hockey University online course (HU – Online Coach 1/2) prior to signing up for their virtual clinic. Coaches that require the Coach – Instructional Stream – Checking Skills 1 training must complete the HU – Online Checking course prior to signing up for their virtual clinic. The HU – Online Coach 1/2 and HU – Online Checking course is currently available for registration.
All coaches registering for a clinic must also complete the Respect in Sport – Activity Leaders online course. Please note that beginning in 2017-2018 Hockey Manitoba no longer accepts the Speak Out course for coaches. Respect in Sport is only valid for five (5) years therefore any coach that completed their Respect in Sport prior to the 2017 – 2018 season will be required to re-certify with Respect in Sport.
Coaches that require Coach 1 – Intro to Coach or Coach 2 – Coach Level for the category they are coaching only need “TRAINED” status. Coaches that require Development 1 or High Performance 1 must earn “CERTIFIED” status.
High Performance 1 coaches earn “CERTIFIED” status by attending the multi-day HP1 seminar and receiving a passing grade on their written assignment and field evaluations. Development 1 coaches can earn “CERTIFIED” status by attending the two day training course as well as receiving a passing grade on their Making Ethical Decisions course and field evaluations.
Please ensure that you are aware of the proper training that qualifies you to coach at your level of hockey. A complete list of Coaching Requirements can be found HERE that will help determine the training you need.
