Coaching Qualifications 2022/2023
Submitted By S. Clark on Sat 05 21, 22
I know it's May long weekend and it's a little early to start talking hockey, however I wanted to send you a quick note regarding some coaching courses that are being offered by Hockey Canada.

For those who will require their Coach 1, or Coach 2 qualification for the upcoming season, I wanted to highlight that Hockey Canada is still offering both of these courses through their virtual program, which means you can complete the course on your own schedule and don't have to worry about trying to get to an in-person course in September/October during the busy try-out or return to hockey schedule. Please see link: HCR 3.0 - Hockey Canada Registry  HCR 3.0 - Hockey Canada Registry

For those who require their Development 1 (D1) qualification, Hockey Canada has a course being offered the weekend of May 28-29th.  This is a 2-day course, and although it is offered online, you must attend during the prescribed hours that weekend.  Pre-registration is required, but wanted to flag this to your attention as it's an easier way to attend the 2-day course from your own home vs travelling down to the city.

At this point, we don't have any information as to whether the coaching courses will transition back to in-person for the 2022/2023 season.  I can share with you that if they do go back to in-person, SSMHA has reached out and offered to host a clinic for the area, but still too early for any decisions.  Therefore, to avoid any scheduling issues come September, I wanted to highlight these online offerings in hope of getting a head start on next season.

Last,  I have attached the 2022-2023 OMHA Coaching Requirements Guidelines.  For those coaching in the Girls Program, the new OWHA guideline hasn't been updated yet, but traditionally the OWHA very closely mirrors what is required under the OMHA guideline attached, so I don't expect any radical changes.  For those coaching at the Rep Level from U11 - U18, you will notice that you are now required to be "Certified" this year which means having an evaluator review a series of practice plans and come and observe/evaluate one of your practices.  Again, SSMHA is trying to get ahead of this and we are in the process of getting a couple of individuals qualified in our Association to be able to help evaluate the backlog and get SSMHA coaches certified early in the season so you don't have to worry about it as the season progresses.  More on that in the coming months, but I wanted you to be aware and don't sweat it as we are trying to make this process more convenient for all of you.
