U8-10 Coach Applications Needed
If you were considering applying to coach a U8-U10 rep team this year but missed the deadline, here is your second chance.  We have extended the U8-U10 Coaching application deadline to Friday, September 3rd.  

While we have received multiple applications for head coaching roles in the U8-U10 age groups, it is likely that some vacancies will remain and we want to have coaches identified as soon as possible after the Development Team have slotted players into teams based on skill level.  

Head Coaches can expect their teams to be on the ice 4+ times a week and will need to invest time developing practice plans and naturally directing the activities of other team staff members. You should not only bring strong hockey knowledge to the role but effective communication and organizational skills will be tremendously valuable over the course of the season.  

If you are interested in being a Head Coach for a team in one of these age groups, please submit your application through the following link by 11:59pm on Friday, September 3rd.  

2021-2022 Coaching Application

If you feel that you can't play the role of a Head Coach but are willing to be an Assistant Coach, please submit an application indicating your interest by the deadline.  This will help the selected Head Coaches build their staffs quickly.

The qualifications for both the Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches at the U8 and U9 age groups are Coach 1 - Intro to Coach.   For the U10 age group, Coach 2 - Coach Level Trained is required for Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches.  

If you are considering submitting an application but have questions before doing so, please reach out to Bryan Smith ([email protected]) and he will direct you to someone that can help.
