Summer Coaching Clinic

Community Sport Initiation (CSI) – Edmonton Saturday, August 25, 2018 @ Clareview Arena 8am – 5pm*     

Are you thinking about coaching next season at the U10, U12B or U12C levels? Edmonton Ringette is hosting a CSI clinic on August 25th to help coaches complete their requirements before the season kicks in. In order to take this CSI course, you will first have to complete the Coach Initiation eModule. (details on our Where to Start page)

We are sometimes asked about summer clinics and have come up against two common roadblocks: people are on holidays, and coaches haven’t been selected. While holiday conflicts are unavoidable, there are often enough U10 and U12 teams that associations can find spots for coaches who are interested. If you are unsure, please check with your local association.

Next steps: register for a clinic! Go to our Where to Start page and follow the instructions.

*Note 1: we need a minimum of 15 participants to make this clinic go ahead. If you register and it’s cancelled, we can transfer your payment to another clinic once they are open and you register. Refunds are also possible.

*Note 2: the full list of fall clinics will be posted in late August. There will be plenty of opportunities to complete the training if this one won’t work.

Call for candidates for the Ringette Canada Board of Directors
