News: Last chance for Coaching Applications Aug 30, 2019
Posted by Jon Ahrens, Posted: Wed Aug 14, 2019 @ 3:36 PM

The HRA is accepting applications for Coaches, Managers, and Trainers for the 2019-2020 season till 11:59pm Aug 30, 2019.

 

For those of you who don’t have a ringette background and think that’s a barrier for applying, it’s not. Training is provided via online, classroom and on-ice coaching clinics and courses. We also have a number of passionate and well-trained volunteers within the club who are happy to mentor you along the way. For those of you that do have a ringette background- well you already know how fun this game is but you may be surprised to discover that it gets even better when helping young players learn, play, and enjoy the sport as well.

 

Ideally, to run efficiently, each team has a Head Coach, two Assistant Coaches, a Trainer, and a Manager. Position descriptions, training requirements and other information can be found at these following websites:

 

www.coachingringette.ca

https://ringetteontario.com/the-people/coaches/

https://ringetteontario.com/the-people/coaches/coaching-pathways/

 

Please have a look and seriously consider this fun and rewarding experience- these teams can’t run without your involvement and participation. The training costs are reimbursed by the HRA once completed, to the approved candidates.

 

Bench/Coach Applications can be found in the ‘Documents and Forms’ folder on the main page of the Hamilton Ringette website, here:

http://www.hamiltonringette.ca/league/page.aspx?PageID=2729

 

We’re also always looking for on-ice volunteers at the Learn to Skate [LTS] level as well. If your player will be in LTS next year, this is a good way to get on the ice and test the waters without committing to the training requirements.

 

Please complete and submit forms to coaching@hamiltonringette.ca either by picture or scanned document.
