The Halifax Hurricanes Ringette Association (HHRA) is seeking coaches to support its recreational and competitive teams during the 2023/24 ringette season! We are looking for coaches for all age groups from U7 to U19 at all levels including competitive coaches; both head coaches and assistant coaches wanted!

Coaching youth sports has many benefits, including:

  • Improving the confidence and skills of young athletes;
  • Inspiring the next generation of athletes by imparting your love of sport, citizenship, values and teamwork to them;
  • Building relationships with your community;
  • Gaining valuable leadership skills; and
  • For some coaches, spending quality time with your own children.

Coaches involved with our HHRA teams can look forward to a positive atmosphere in the locker room and healthy competition on the ice!

Questions & Answers

What is the time commitment to be a ringette coach?

Whether coaching recreational or competitive teams, most coaches will host one or two 1-hour practices per week and attend one game (either home or away); of note, U9 teams do not play games. Most teams (U10 and above) will also attend between two and four ringette tournaments hosted within the Halifax region or in other communities across the Maritimes each season. Additional time is often taken to plan for practices, however all coaches have the support of team managers who take on many of the administrative tasks including regular correspondence with their players’ parents/guardians. 

What experience/qualifications do I need to be a ringette coach?

  • Previous experience as a coach for youth/children’s sport is an asset but by no means mandatory.
  • Proof of a clean criminal and vulnerable sector check. We accept valid checks completed in the last 36 months. Anyone requesting a criminal and vulnerable sector check to become a coach with our association will be reimbursed their check fee.
