On Page 122 of Hockey Manitoba’s 2023 – 2024 Constitution, Regulations & Rules of Competition Handbook, under Section K-12, it states:
“Upon application, at the discretion of the Executive Director and Coordinator, Coaching Development, individuals under the age of 22 as of December 31st of the current season will be eligible to assist with teams or development programs as an “Apprentice Coach”. Should application be approved, the individual would require the Respect in Sport certification prior to participation with the team. This approval would remain in effect for the balance of the current season – with a one year automatic renewal for the following season. Full certification/training is required once the renewal Apprentice Coach term has expired. Teams with Apprentice Coach or Coaches on their roster must have a fully certified/trained coaching staff.”
To apply to be an Apprentice Coach, please contact your local Minor Hockey Association President or Registrar. MHA President/Registrar should forward any requests on behalf of the Association to Ben Blankstein, Coordinator, Coach Development.
