Development 1 Exemption Request Policy

Any coach wishing to apply for an exemption is asked to submit a short essay (500 words) rationalizing why they should be granted an exemption to complete the D1 course. The essay must include a hockey resume with past playing and coaching experience, proof of registration within Hockey NL, and any other related coaching experience. Exemption request essays must be submitted to the NCCP Coordinator and Technical Director for approval. Each request will be evaluated based on individual merits by the NCCP Coordinator, Technical Director and Hockey Development Chair.
