TIER 1 (T1) REPRESENTATIVE coaching application deadline is 11:59pm on Sunday May 23, 2021.
We will leave the application open for all other coaches interested in coaching REPRESENTATIVE and / or RECREATIONAL teams as a Head Coach or Assistant Coach.
If you are unsure about whether or not your child will play representative or recreational hockey this season and you would like to coach regardless, we encourage you to complete this application to indicate your interest in both. Doing so will not impact your child’s chances of making a representative team.
As per the direction of the association regarding Rep hockey, at the Tier 1 Level (and all other levels), our aim is to select the best qualified applicant.
Coaches who are short-listed for Representative coaching positions will be contacted by the Coach Selection Panel, and may be requested to provide additional information to the selection panel and / or participate in an interview.
Coaches who are short-listed for all recreational team positions may be contacted by the Director of Coaching and asked to provide additional information if deemed necessary.
It is the intention of the association to identify coaching staff for respective teams (Recreational and Representative) as soon as possible. However, please recognize that some assignments may be expedited due to representative team planning and assessment requirements, while others may be delayed while recreational team numbers are determined at each division and while player assessments in the Representative stream process continue in early-to-mid September.

Again, thank you for your application to coach in VMHA and we are really looking forward to an exciting season with excellent coaches and our expanded coach-support system to further benefit our coaches and players.
