Upcoming in-person and virtual coaching clinics

Sep. 16, 2023

Attention, Halifax Hurricanes coaches! 

Ringette Nova Scotia has scheduled some coach clinics and has access to some free National Coaching Certification Program modules to kickstart the 2023-24 ringette season.

In-person Community Sport Initiation (CSI) and Competition Introduction (CI) Clinics

  • CSI - Sunday, October 1 from 8:30am-5:30pm at HRM 4Pad. All coaches at U10 and U12 must have this course, as do all coaches in our FUNdamentals Children's Ringette Program.
  • CI - November 25 and 26 from 9am-5pm at HRM 4Pad (both days). All coaches at 14T1 and 16T1 must have this course. Head Coaches at 14T2, 16T2 and U19 must also have CI.

In efforts to recruit coaches and get as many coaches trained as possible - and thereby raise the quality of coaching across the community - Ringette Nova Scotia may accept CSI for Assistant Coaches at 14T2, 16T2 and U19. Those individual coaches must contact Ringette Nova Scotia’s Executive Director, Stacey Sloan, to discuss whether this is an option for them by emailing execdirector@ringette.ns.ca 

Registration for these courses will open on Monday, September 18 on the Ringette Canada website, here: http://www.coachingringette.ca/c/

Virtual CSI clinics

There are also several upcoming virtual CSI clinics being offered on October 10, October 30, and November 21. If you can’t make it to Ringette Nova Scotia’s in-person session on October 1 you can register* for one of the virtual clinics here! http://www.coachingringette.ca/c/index.php?province=ON&new_year=2023&home_section=Course+Listing&page=330

There is a $150 up front cost to register, however our association will reimburse all expenses for this course AND any other expenses incurred to become a coach and to upgrade and maintain credentials!
