Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions in place from Public Health in respect to informal gatherings and our inability to deliver fully the Development 1 program, we have made the following adjustment to the qualification/certification coaching requirements for this season only for representative teams in Under 13 and above.

The following will be the minimum requirement for Development 1 for the 2021-22 season only:

Head Coaches must be Coach 2 Trained with their Development 1 MED successfully completed (both the Virtual and On-Line Evaluation). We have scheduled 2 sessions listed below. Once complete members will then have approximately a 14-day window to complete their On-Line Evaluation which will take approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Sessions have been scheduled for:

  • February 9th 7:00-9:00pm SOLD OUT
  • February 16th 7:00-9:00pm

* Sessions will take place via zoom. Coaches may sign up for what ever session works best for them.

Registration can be found in the HCR under COACH – PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – MAKE ETHICAL DECISIONS – HOCKEY”. Members will be able to register via the following link:  https://register.hockeycanada.ca/clinics.
