Please ensure that you complete all the mandatory questions marked with an asterisk. Additionally, prepare your one-page Coaching Philosophy/Coaching Motivation, Hockey Resume, and an age-appropriate 50-minute practice plan in a PDF format. The application form will prompt you to attach these documents with your name (e.g., Connor McDavid - Practice Plan). You will receive an email confirmation once your application has been successfully submitted.

Following the application deadline, the selection of coaches for existing coaches will be based on the following criteria:

  • Eligibility in accordance with our Rules of Operation.
  • Results from Parent and Player Surveys.
  • Results from the Development Team Survey.
  • Commitment to our Development program
  • Years of coaching the same age group.

GMHA will once again appoint an independent professional group, consisting of individuals with backgrounds in sports, hockey, and HR, to form the Coach Selection Committee (CSC). They are impartial, non-board members, and not affiliated with GMHA as employees. Coaching interviews will commence shortly after the application deadline, although not all applicants may be interviewed.
