Coach Selection (St. Marys Ringette)

PrintCoach Selection

The St Marys Ringette Association (SMRA) relies entirely on volunteers to coach Ringette. Coaches apply to the SMRA using the St Marys Coaching Application, indicating a preferred division and level at which they would like to coach. In some cases the Board will also solicit volunteers to apply.

The President and a sub-Committee of the Board will review all applications as well as any feedback received from Coach Evaluations. The group will recommend to the Board, prior to the start of each season, the coaches for each division. Recommendations will also take into account coaching qualifications and experience.

Ringette coaches are required to attend clinics, and obtain coaching certification through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The SMRA is committed to supporting individuals who wish to participate in this certification process. Coaching clinics are held throughout the year, and usually entail at least a weekend commitment.

The SMRA’s objective is to ensure that each team has qualified coaching staff that may include a combination of experienced, certified coaches and individuals new to coaching who are willing to pursue certification through the NCCP. Each team must have at least one certified female bench staff (coach, assistant coach, manager and/or trainer).

For “A” level teams, the Committee will review the applicants and make a recommendation to the Board on the Head coach based on his/her coaching qualifications and experience.

If the coaching applicant has a child trying-out for the team, then a decision about who will coach the team will be delayed until after the players have been evaluated.

It is preferable that the Head coach is selected prior to the commencement of try-outs and can support the Committee in the player selection process. After the team has been selected, the Head coach and Committee will choose the remaining bench staff based on the qualifications and willingness of the individuals available.
