WHAT TRAINING DO I NEED TO COACH?
All coaches must achieve “Trained” status by December 1st in order to remain eligible for the remainder of the season. Individuals must complete the online modules delivered through Hockey University then fully attend & participate at an in-person coach clinic to achieve “Trained” status (formerly referred as “certified”).
The course you require to be “Trained” in is specific to the level you’re currently coaching. Each course stream of training is designed to cover the pertinent learning & skills content appropriate for the level of athlete which you’ll currently be coaching.
In addition to your appropriate course stream outlined below, all coaches also require the Respect In Sport (RIS)certification (online).
Once you have determined your appropriate course stream visit our COACH TRAINING & CLINICS page to begin the training process.
