Most years there are one or two changes to the Coaching Course requirements and course delivery methods.

Please see the Hockey Alberta Coach Course Requirements which helps us to see exactly what the MINIMUM is for each category. Most coaches will require Coach 2 - Coach Level certification EXCEPT U15 Tier 1 and U18 Tier 1 teams who now require Coach Development Level I. Note that all courses may have both online and classroom components.

SWZ Hockey encourages our Coaches and Assistants to take the courses offered and will reimburse for completed courses for anyone that is on one of our Team Rosters. The Hockey Canada Safety Program (HCSP) has now been changed to an online course.
