Hockey University (HU) is an online education tool developed by Hockey Canada as a service for team staff (coaches, managers, safety persons) across the country. HU allows us to provide quality learning with a standard delivery message in servicing our members, specifically team staff and officials. With the use of online education, volunteers in Manitoba (and across the country) will now receive a consistent and user friendly educational program accessible at the convenience of the user. Over the past several years there has been many requests to provide an online service for coach & officials training, Hockey Canada and Hockey Manitoba are pleased to now offer this flexibility and convenience to our members. Online education will benefit our volunteers in a number of ways – bringing hockey education into the 21st Century!
Hockey Manitoba requires all Intro to Coach (Initiation Program) and Coach Level candidates to complete the 4 hour online component PRIOR to registering and attending a 5 hour in-person clinic which includes a 1 hour on- ice session. This online portion on Hockey University is titled “HU-Comm Coach Stream”. The HC Safety Program is now completely online as an 8 hour online component with no in-person clinic. Once the online “HU – Comm Coach Stream” is completed, coaches will then be eligible to register for Intro to Coach (Initiation Program) and/or Coach Level in-person clinics.
You only have to complete the HU segment once!
Hockey University, which includes Intro to Coach (Initiation Program), Coach Level, Hockey Safety and Officials educational information, will be accessible through your eHockey accounts. The program, which consists of 12 modules for coaching and 18 modules for safety, has been designed to allow individuals to complete at their convenience and may be revisited at any time during the year. However, it is strongly encouraged to complete all of the HU modules immediately upon receiving your coaching position so that you may have the best chance to register for the in-person clinic that is most convenient for you. You must complete the HU segment before eHockey will allow you to register for a clinic.
