Coaches and assistant coaches including anyone getting on the ice with (other than volunteers 16 years of age and under) need to have their coach level 1 and coach level 2. All rostered bench staff also need a vulnerable sector check. The form to apply for this, directly at the RCMP station, is below. If the bench staff is missing courses/forms/checks, it is your responsibility to advise and remind them if necessary. All courses can be found on the ehockey website.
In case of unavailability, parent volunteers (other than manager/trainer) will need to be trained for timekeeping.
All teams require a travel permit for all tournament except the home one and for any games that are not in the NSMHL Schedule (Atom to Midget). To obtain one, please find that they are available online on the HNB e-account (see HNB website) for any questions please contact our Manager Mentor.
With your team and in collaboration with the Scheduler, book your ice and your photographer only if this is something your team is interested in. Please note due to COVID 19 policies team pictures will not be allowed. Individual pictures are still an option.
The only fundraising you are allowed to do as a team is a 50/50 at your home games and a collection jar (ie; parents collect .25 cents/goal). You are responsible to organize this and delegate to other parents on a schedule of your choice. (Due to COVID 19 Restrictions, the half & half must be done in one designated area and no walking around from seat to seat is permitted).
If you are doing a 50/50 or collection jar for your team it is also your responsibility as a manager to keep the parents updated on the teams finances.
Familiarize yourself with the RNMHA, NSMHL, and HNB websites. This is where you will find the links to information you will possibly need throughout your season as a manager, such as The Minimum Standards of Disipline, RNMHA constitution, HNB constitution etc.
