COACH/BENCH QUALIFICATIONS

  • Coach qualifications for DISTRICT 1 are to be followed.  HEO has different qualifications, and are the minimum.  Coaches/trainers must follow the proper protocol for D1 qualifications below. 
  • Any coach who was on the bench last year, and did not have proper qualifications (last year we used HEO standards), will not be permitted on the bench/roster this year until qualifications are obtained. 
  • ALL volunteers REQUIRE VSCRC checks. Anyone who does not get this done is NOT permitted on a roster. It is up to the Association Registrar to manage that,
  • There are NO ON-ICE HELPERS. Everyone must have proper bench/coach qualifications (level, RIS, VSCRC); unless it's a student getting volunteer hours (age 16 and over needs VSCRC).
  • NO BENCH STAFF IS TO BE ADDED TO A ROSTER WITHOUT COMPLETE QUALIFICATIONS...if they are registered for a clinic they will be approved as PENDING.  So with this being said, they need to have the following to be added : appropriate coaching course as required for level they are coaching, VSCRC, RIS, Gender Identity Equality course.
