Resources for Coaches

Volunteer Coaches

Thank you for your interested in coaching a Richmond Jets MHA Team. Below is all the information that you need to become a certified coach in our association.

Hockey Canada ID

In order to register for a coaching clinic, you need a Hockey Canada Registry ID number. If you do not have one (if you have played minor hockey in the last 15 years you may already have one) please contact the registrar and provide your full legal name, address, email, phone, date of birth and care card number.

Planning a Safe Return to Hockey Course

NEW for 2020 Season!
Hockey Canada has developed an online course to inform players, parents, safety people, officials, and coaches on how to navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19 called: Planning a Safe Return to Hockey.

The course is mandatory for coaches, safety people and officials prior to registering for the 2020-21 season.

This course takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and there is no charge.

Respect in Sport

Respect in Sport is an online course for all hockey volunteers who have contact with players. It will take you about three hours to complete. You will have to pay for the program and you will be reimbursed for the expense once you have finished it.

When you register for the course, use the same email address that you used for your Hockey Canada Registry ID to ensure that your results are attached to your ID.

Please ensure that you take the Respect in Sport module for Coaches.

Concussion Assessment Training Tool

This 40-minute online course is free for BC Hockey members and required before taking part in any practice or game.
The CATT course can be accessed from the BC Hockey website.

Coach Certification

Visit the BC Hockey Coaching Clinics web page to learn more about getting certified as a coach.

Please note that you do not have to take a clinic hosted by RJMHA. You can take a clinic at any location that works for your schedule.

To take either the Coach 1 or Coach 2 clinic there is an online clinic that must be taken prior to registering for these clinics. Part A is called HU-Online Coach 1/2. You should take this clinic now even if you cannot take the Coach 1 or Coach 2 classroom/ice session until after the season starts. Then you will be ready to sign up for the Coach 2 clinic as soon as a session is scheduled and you will not have to wait.

You can register online for the HU-Online Coach 1/2 Clinic 

Coach 1 is required to coach H1 to H4 (Initiation Minor and Major and Novice Minor and Major).

Coach 2 is required to Atom to Juvenile C and Atom Rep. The program is delivered in two parts. In Part A, you complete the online program which covers topics such as The Coaching Code of Ethics, Skills, Drills and Thrills, Dealing with Athletes, Dealing with Parents, and the Philosophy of Coaching. In Part B, you attend classroom and on-ice sessions.

Once you have successfully completed your clinic fill out the course reimbursement form.

If you have any questions about the above matters feel free to contact Jason Light, the C Coach Coordinator.
