COACHING REQUIREMENTS

Local Minor Hockey Associations and Club Team must ensure by November 15th, all Teams meet the requirements outlined in the chart below. Any Team that does not meet the requirements outlined within the Hockey Alberta regulations is not an eligible team and  is not able to participate in sanctioned games.

Once the certification deadline passes, any team that does not meet the required certifications for their Team Officials will be notified that they are ineligible to participate until they have obtained the proper certifications.

Head Coaches will have to be 'Trained' in the course by November 15 of the current season and will have to have completed full 'Certification' in the program by November 15 of the following season in order to remain eligible.
