Learn how to get certification to coach or officiate

The Pas Minor Hockey Association is happy to have those that volunteer their time towards making the season fun, fulfilling and enjoyable.  If you're interested in coaching or being an official, here is some important information.

The first step is to determine what level of training you'll need for the level of coaching you're interested in.  You can check that here.

All coaches must complete the Hockey University course, and the Respect in Sport course.  Both of these are done online.  The Hockey University course will be available through the Hockey Canada website

The Respect in Sport course is available through the Sport Manitoba website.   After you have completed these, you attend an in-person clinic to be qualified.  That you sign-up for through the Hockey Canada website, you will have to search clinics for "The Pas", after you have completed your online courses.  The deadline to be qualified for  each season is December 1 of the respective year. 

Coaching Clinics for the 2019-20 have been announced.   Click here for details.


Officials Clinics for 2019/20:  

There will be a level 1 and 2 referee clinic held on  at the Roy H. Johnston Arena in the multipurpose room, October 19th.

All must attend the ice session. For the ice session please bring helmet and whistle and skates.  Details here.


You will also be required to do a criminal record check at the local RCMP.  You can print off a signed form from Executive, and drop it off at the detachment with the completed necessary CRC Forms.  Please note:  You need to sign the documents at the detachment in person, and bring 2 pieces of valid ID.  After 7 days, you can pick up the form and return it to Ernie Foster.

If anyone has any questions regarding referee courses or criminal record checks please contact Referee-in-Chief, Ernie Foster.
