Courses for Coaches/Trainers (Lakefield Minor Hockey)

PrintCourses for Coaches/Trainers

To be rostered to a team or to a bench, you and/or parents and guardians must have proper qualifications and take mandatory courses per OMHA rules. (To go directly to the page you need, click on the links below)


PARENTS/GUARDIANS


All parents/guardians of players must take the Respect in Sport - Parent course and link their child to their account. This is all explained in the following link: 
Respect in Sport - Parent

If you have not registered a player in hockey before, you will need to do that before you take the Respect in Sport - Parent course.
If you are registering a player for the first time, you will also need to forward a photo of your player's birth certificate to Tanya Dunford.
OMHA will not approve a roster without a birth certificate or the RIS - Parent course on file for each player.

To find the course you need, please scroll down to the division (U13, U15 etc) and category (LL or Rep) to see the qualifications required.
To sign up for the course, go to the HCR Clinic Registry.
Make sure you select Ontario Hockey Federation and Ontario Minor Hockey Association at the top of the page so that you take the correct courses for this area. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that you take the courses required for the division you want to coach.
Every course listed in the division below MUST be completed.
Your credentials will automatically show up in HCR when we check your profile.
If they are not visible, you have not completed the course properly.
Please use an email and password that you will remember in the coming years, as your account will always be tied to the email you sign up with. Lakefield Minor Hockey reps are not able to retrieve your qualifications and upload them for you or provide you with your login information.
