COACHES

GENERAL COACHING INFORMATION

Volunteer coaches make up the backbone of our hockey program. Any person wishing to coach must submit a coach application to the NWW board regardless of whether or not they coached last season.

We hope that all coaches are willing to:

  1. Volunteer to be an evaluator during pre-season evaluations.
  2. Agree to a criminal record check when required.
  3. Agree to enforce and abide by the Fair Play Code for Coaches.
  4. Obtain all required coaching certification prior to Nov 15.

Prior to each season, the NWW requests all coaches to attend the Coaches Meeting.

Each year, we conduct an evaluation of our coaches. Coaches are entitled to review a summary of the evaluation forms upon request.

 

Effective starting the 2013 / 2014 season a person acting as a head coach will be restricted to coaching on one team. We want to ensure that as many people coach as possible, and that people only take on multiple coaching roles if no one else is available.

 

The NWW will reimburse coaches for required certification provided that:

  1. The courses were approved by the Director of Coaching prior to taking the course.
  2. Courses were successfully completed and appropriate evidence of attendance and payment is submitted prior to Dec 15.

 

The NWW encourage non-parent volunteer coaches. Please submit an application if you would like to coach this season.

APPROVALS & REIMBURSEMENT

Coach Certification Approval and Reimbursement

All approved courses will be reimbursed by the association.  Teams will be contacted directly by the administrator with a list of courses that need to be taken in order to certify their team.

Once the courses are complete all receipts should be submitted to the team manager.  All teams will submit their receipts together after November 15 to the administrator.  Reimbursement will be issued directly to each coach and arrangements will be made for pickup.

The deadline for submission is December 15.  Any receipts received after this deadline will not be reimbursed.  Please note that only approved/necessary courses for a team will be reimbursed.  Coaches are free to take as many courses as they want but the onus will be on them to cover the expense.

If you have any questions regarding this policy please contact Fiona at admin@crowchildhockey.org.
