Coaches registration process - Hockey Canada registration

Starting June 1

  • On your child’s registration, indicate which position you are interested in. If you didn’t do this, please make sure you follow the steps below and it will be added.
  • You will need to register yourself through the Hockey Canada Website link  and answer the questions outlined if you want to be considered as a Coach for the upcoming hockey season.
    • If you have used the system before, you will have the same username and password; if you haven’t used the system, you simply make yourself an account.
    • You will register as a participant and then Coach and Assistant Coach Application will be your only selection options.
  • Please make sure that you have taken the Respect in Sport (RIS) for Activity Leaders Course at
    • Hockey Alberta has mandated that all Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Trainers and Managers that appear on the Team Sheet must have RIS* Coaches.
      • *Coaches are required to re-certify their RIS every four seasons.
    • You cannot go on the ice or the bench for any reason until this course is completed and shows on your Hockey Canada File.
    • Those that are on Team Rosters with SWAT will be reimbursed the cost for the three-hour long online course.
    • RIS Coaches is DIFFERENT than RIS Parents – if you are both a Parent and a Coach, you will have to do both courses.

Please note that your coach registration on Hockey Canada does not mean you will be selected to coach. The coach selection committee selects head coaches.
