2018-2019 Coaching Application Form for SMHA (recreational) & Joint SMHA / VMHA Co-op
Please complete the following form if you are interested in coaching at the SMHA recreational level, or coaching at the representative level in the SMHA / VMHA Co-op for the 2018-2019 season.

Coaches interested in applying for both Recreational or Representative level hockey must complete this application form.

The application deadline is 11:59pm on Sunday June 24, 2018 for those applying to coach a representative (Rep) team in the SMHA / VMHA Co-op.

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.

If you possess the following, we would like to hear from you:
- A desire to assist our players in the development of their hockey and life skills
- Knowledge and understanding of the minor hockey system in British Columbia
- Must be able to provide a current “Police Vulnerable Sector Check” report
- Current coaching certifications that meet the requirements outlined by VIAHA and BC Hockey for coaching at the level applied for

As per the direction of the SMHA / VMHA Co-op Committee regarding Rep hockey, at the Tier 1 Level, our aim is to select the best qualified applicant.

Coaches who are short-listed for Co-op Representative coaching positions will be contacted by the Coach Selection Panel of the Co-op Rep Program, 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 SMHA Director of Coaching and asked to provide additional information if deemed necessary.

It is the intention of SMHA & the SMHA / VMHA Co-op to identify coaching staff for respective teams (Recreational and Representative) as soon as possible. However, please recognize that some assignments may be delayed while player assessments in the Representative stream process continue in early-to-mid September.

Questions? Please contact Grant Smith, SMHA Director of Coaching: smith@sll.ca .

Again, thank you for your application to coach with SMHA and / or with the SMHA / VMHA Co-op.


Grant Smith, SMHA Director of Coaching
