Junior Coach Program
NCRA is looking for players between the ages of 14 and 17 who wish to be involved in coaching a team and starting their leadership experience.
The purpose of the Junior Coach role is to provide valuable mentoring and exposure to quality coaching for young athletes. NCRA is committed to delivering opportunities for players to give back and continue in the sport of ringette in leadership roles.
To qualify to be a Junior Coach, you must meet all of the following criteria:
Junior Coaches are also welcome to complete the Community Sport or Competition Introduction Stream courses, however it is not mandatory until they turn 18.
Junior Coaches are expected to regularly attend practices and games of the team as best as possible. Please note a Junior Coach is not considered the “female coach” until they are 18. Junior Coaches are always under the supervision of a qualified head/assistant coach and will only be placed on teams in a division younger than the Junior Coach. Head/Assistant Coaches are responsible to provide leadership, guidance and opportunity during the season for Junior Coach participants on their team. Teams must register any Junior Coaches on their team roster.
Participants in the Junior Coach program must identify their interest directly to the NCRA Coaching Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) each season. Junior Coaches will be assigned to teams by the NCRA Coaching Coordinator in partnership with the NCRA Board. To manage the program fairly and provide on-going opportunities to Junior Coach participants, a Junior Coach can only be assigned to a team by the NCRA Coaching Coordinator. For U10 levels and above, a maximum of two Junior Coaches may be assigned to a team.
