To become a RDPH coach, you will need a few requirements:

  • Willingness to have a great time with great kids!
  • Sign up as a Coach on the RDPH Registration system.
  • A Criminal Records Check and Respect in Sports is required.

Until you are assigned a team you will not have access to team information.  

Equipment Pick Up will occur prior to the first game, and is typically split up into times for Divisions I,II, and III, and another time or date for Divisions Iv,V and VI.

Equipment to be handed out includes: Jerseys, 20 pucks, 6 pylons, a first aid kit, goalie equipment for Div I , II and III and Div IV if required.

Strategy for getting setup in Red Deer Pond Hockey:

At first game, hand out jerseys and record player numbers Run a few drills, have fun with the children.

After first game, have a team meeting with parents and players to:

  • Let them know your expectations of the Players
  • What parents can expect from you
  • Will you be unavailable at some point
  • Where you need help (ask someone to be the goalie coordinator and be responsible for setting up the player and goalie equipment for next week so you do not have to carry to each game, etc.)
  • Provide parents/guardians contact information for team coaches/manager/liaison
  • Assign team volunteer roles: team manager, jersey parents 
  • Answer any questions
