Coach Information


AMHA Coaches

Coaches are essential to hockey at every level. A caring, enthusiastic, well-trained coach can be a positive influence on the experience of players, parents and other coaches.

Hockey Canada works with its Members and local hockey associations to provide effective education, certification and registration for thousands of hockey coaches annually.
    - Hockey Canada

Coaches provide leadership, education, instruction and contribute to the growth of our athletes on and off the ice. 
    - Hockey Alberta

Hockey,  for our children in Airdrie, could not happen without the endless hours of volunteering from our coaches.  We have over 400 coaches that volunteer to make our player's hockey experience great. We all appreciate your time and effort.

Coaching Requirements

Before your first ice time, all AMHA Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Goalie Coaches and Trainers must have the following:

1.  Respect In Sport Activity Leader course completed and provided to the AMHA office

2.  A current RCMP Criminal Record Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) that has been completed in the past 3 years.  If you are unsure if the VSC that we have on file has expired, please go to your Spordle Account (how to below) and under the Dashboard click on the Members Icon and your profile will pop up.  Click on CRC and you will see what date your VSC will expire.  If you live within Airdrie, you must go thru the Airdrie RCMP detachment for a subsidized check.  You MUST also take/include a copy of the Criminal Record Check Letter for RCMP with your name added to it so that the VSC is subsidized.  The City of Airdrie has recently changed their fees for Volunteer VSC's and the remaining $6 charge can be submitted to AMHA for reimbursement. AMHA does not cover the cost of online CRC's from out of boundary service providers.

The RCMP building is open from 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday, excluding Statutory holidays.  If you need to obtain an updated VSC and can't make it into the office you can send an online request to:  KAirdrieServices@rcmp-grc.gc.ca advising why you require one.  You will need to include the CRC Letter for RCMP, let them know what your position is with Airdrie Minor Hockey (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Goalie Coach or Trainer), and advise that you will be in a position of authority or trust over vulnerable persons (i.e. Children). 

Upon receipt of your email, the RCMP will send you the correct forms to complete with instructions.

In the event that you are required to be fingerprinted for your VSC, you will have to go into the RCMP office as this can not be done online.

Once you get the completed VSC back from the RCMP please email a clear photo of it to the office at:

officeadmin@airdriehockey.com

All Head Coaches must also be current with coaching certifications required for the team.  Please visit the Hockey Alberta website to see what the requirements are for each level of coaching. Coaching courses should be completed beforneed to be completed by November 15th.

The website also provides you with locations and dates to obtain the courses, some courses may require online and on ice sessions to complete the course.

AMHA will reimburse coach for all courses/clinics that you successfully attend and pass when submitted using the Coach Reimbursement Form
