The goals of the coach certification programs are to:
- Provide coaches with the tools to work effectively with young players
- Provide coaches the training to successfully implement the HC curriculum
- Introduce coaches to the concepts of fair play and cooperation within the hockey environment
The certification training focuses on:
OMHA COACH EDUCATION:
- Facilitating parent meetings
- Delivering effective practices
- Designing a safety program
- Teaching individual technical skills
- Preparing for game day
The Hockey Trainer Certification Program (HTCP) is a risk management and safety education program for the volunteer hockey trainer. The ultimate goal of the program is to have all hockey trainers implement effective risk management on their own teams, where safety is the first priority at all times, both on and off the ice..
