VMHA Junior Coaching Program

Vancouver Minor Hockey will be offering a Junior Coaching Program to 10 VMHA players aged 16 and over the upcoming season.

The purpose of the program is to:

  • Help our midget and juvenile VMHA players achieve their NCCP Coach Level 2 certification over the course of the season
  • Provide an opportunity for Junior Coaches to practice their coaching skills with a VMHA team during practices and games
  • Satisfy their Community Service Requirement for secondary school graduation
  • And to be considered for a coaching position with VMHA in the future.

Structure of program:

  • Junior coaches will attend the VMHA NCCP Level 2 certification in the Fall and will also complete Respect in Sport and Concussion Awareness Training Tool
  • The junior coaches will then be assigned to a VMHA team where they will be mentored by our parent coaches and assist with practices and games.
  • Junior coaches will be expected to attend three evening meetings during the season to meet as a group and discuss their progress with the course work, their experience with their teams, and ask any questions they may have of our mentor coaches present at the meeting.
  • Upon completion of their course work and season, we will announce their accomplishment on our VMHA website.
  • Junior Coaches, as on-ice coaches, must wear their helmet with a cage, neck guard, gloves, and track suit.
