NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR 2022 - DUE DECEMBER 31st:

Starting in the 2022-2023 season, the following NCCP courses will be required for all Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Managers and Trainers:

·       Making Headway (Multi-Sport version)

·       Support Through Sport (includes 4 modules):

o   Understanding Teen Dating Violence

o   Bystander Empowerment

o   Gender-based Violence in Sport

o   Modelling Healthy Relationships

As these are a new requirement this season, the deadline for course completion is December 31st, 2022.  Please note many Team Staff may already have some of these courses as some are required to maintain your D1 coaching certification.  Please check your HCR 3.0 and Locker (thelocker.coach.ca) to see what courses you have already.  Contact the Coaching Committee if you need assistance in checking your NCCP courses.

If the Coaching Committee does not receive copies of the certifications for these courses by December 31st, 2022, the applicable Team Staff member is not permitted on the bench or the ice until the requirement is met and approved by us.

EXISTING WGMHA REQUIREMENTS - DUE FALL 2022:

All Team Staff, and On-Ice Helpers, must provide the following to the Coaching Committee:

·       Name, email and phone number for each Team Staff member and On-Ice Helper.

·       Date of birth and address for anyone who is new to our Association.

·       Provide proof of the following:

o   NCCP number (this can be obtained on the Coaching Locker – thelocker.coach.ca)

o   Valid Police Vulnerable Sector Check or receipt from the police for a police check that is in progress (required every 3 years).

o   The required certifications as listed in the ‘Woolwich Wild Team Staff Requirements’ chart in this document.

o   If the required coaching course is not available until after the submission date, proof of registration in the applicable course and the date of that course must be provided to the Coaching Committee.  The Coaching Committee may then grant permission for the coach to continue on the bench or ice until the date of the course.  That permission does not extend to any tournaments.

        All Team Staff and On-Ice Helpers must review the OWHA Rowan’s Law Concussion Awareness Resource and Code of Conduct.  This information can be found on our website.

Minimum Requirements

Please note the WGMHA certification requirements are more extensive than the minimum OWHA requirements.  This approach has been approved by the OWHA.

Once obtained, the validated Police Vulnerable Sector Check form must be shown to a member of the Coaching Committee who will confirm it is acceptable and record the date.  The police check must have been completed within the 6 months prior to submission or a new, updated VSC will be required.  The Team Staff member/On-Ice Helper keeps the actual paperwork, we do not retain it.
