Requirements (Coronation Minor Hockey)


Coronation Minor Hockey relies on the volunteers who step forward to run this association, particularly our Coaches, Trainers, and Convenors. Our members appreciate all you do. In order to assure we run a high quality, safe program Coronation Minor Hockey and our governing body Alliance Hockey requires volunteers to acquire some minimum qualifications (see below)

With the New Hockey Canada Database, we ask that all Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Trainers. register themselves through the Coaches Online Registration portion of the registration portal. Please include your interest in coaching a selects team in the volunteer questionnaire protion of the registration. 

The Head coaching requirements have changed as a new division, U9, has been created.

Planning a Safe Return to Hockey

This is a new certification required for this year, It is designed to help the coaches transition back on to the ice. 
The course is available online and must be completed by all bench staff this year. A link to this course is available on the Alliance Hockey Website under Coaches > Courses.

Vulnerable Sector Scan (VSS)

First time volunteers must have a Vulnerable Sector Scan before December 1 of their first season. NEW - Obtain your Vulnerable Sector Scan Online here (a visit to the Police station is no longer required).

If you have continuously coached with Coronation an annual Criminal Offence Declaration (download here) confirming that the status of your Vulnerable Sector Scan is unchanged will be accepted for each of your second and third seasons. In the fourth year we ask that you obtain a new VSS-CRC.

The Volunteer letter for obtaining a discounted VSS/CRC is available here.

Respect in Sports:
Respect in Sports (formerly Speak-Out) is a course outlining coaching expectations. This can only be completed online here. The cost will be reimbursed with the confirmation of successful completion.

Hockey Canada Certifications:
All Head Coaches must have Coach Stream CS 1 for U9 only, all other divisions require Coach Stream CS. Thess are designed for House League Head Coaches and other coaching staff involved on the ice. There is now an on-line portion which is module based. This must be completed before a member can apply to take the classroom portion or on-ice session required for the CS program. A PDF outlining how to complete the online portion can be downloaded here: Hockey Canada Hockey University Clinic Registration Overview (2017-2018). The TDC rep will let coaches know any additional steps required and arrange clinic attendance. 

As an advanced alternative to CS, coaches may opt for a Development Stream (DS) clinic. This course involves 22 hours of classroom instruction, and 2 hours of on-ice instruction, held over a 2 day period.
