Attention Head Coaches:
As noted before, coaching requirements have changed this year. I’ve attached info received from BC Hockey. (click) & (click)
As noted, Head Coaches need to take the Specialty Checking Clinic at the Atom, Bantam & Pee Wee Levels. Only exceptions for this are if you have taken the Coach 2 (Coach Stream) in the last 2 years and if you are taking it in future, it’s included in that.
If you are coaching rep, you MUST take the checking clinic. it was not included in any of the Dev. 1 clinics.
This is only required for Head Coaches, but I would encourage all coaches of a team to take it if they want.
I have organized a clinic for Nov. 11th. link is below. I have booked it around the remembrance day ceremonies. The classroom is 9-1030 am. ice time noon-1pm in JL. This will enable you to attend the ceremonies at RLP.
