Junior Coaches

The Ringette Alberta Junior Coach Program is an important part of the ringette experience for both the junior coach and the players. The program is available to players who wish to be involved in developing their leadership skills while coaching a ringette team at the U12 and under levels.

Junior coaches provide leadership, role modeling, and mentoring to their younger counterparts while working under the guidance and supervision of a certified coach. Junior Coaches are responsible for assisting coaches in practices and at games and signing the game sheets.

All Junior Coaches must complete the Coach Initiation in Sport module. For more information please go to the Ringette Alberta website. You will need to register on coach.ca to access the program. During National Coaches week that course is free (Sept 16-24th 2023), you don‘t have to complete it during that time but register and start.

To qualify to be a junior coach, you must meet the following criteria:
