WNMHA Coach Selection Process

Coaching Application Process:

  • The online Travel Coach Application (as found on the WNMHA web page) is to be completed in full by March 1 2019.

  • The Coaching Selection Committee will conduct preliminary screening interviews with candidates and any necessary second interviews during the month of March.

  • WNMHA will attempt to make final decisions and announce Coaching decisions by the first week of April to allow sufficient time for Spring Tryouts.


The Coaching Selection Committee:

  • Members of the Coaching Selection Committee will conduct the interviews with the assistance of Non-members of WNMHA, who will assist with the interview and assessment of candidates.

  • Selection criteria may include (without limitation) the following:

    • Interview

    • Draft practice plan

    • Prior minor hockey involvement

    • Hockey experience/coaching credentials

    • Previous coaching evaluations

    • Prior complaints or disciplinary action

    • Parent feedback


  • Coaching positions will be awarded using a point based interview and selection process, with the position being awarded to the candidate with the highest combined score.


  • In the event that two or more candidates achieve the same score, the position will be awarded at the discretion of the Coaching Selection Committee. The committee will ensure there is appropriate representation from all three associations. (All votes will be conducted as a show of hands.)


  • The Coaching Selection Committee will select candidates who will then be recommended to the WNMHA Board for ratification and approval.



Conflict of Interest Guidelines:

  • Where a member of the Coaching Selection Committee or the Board is applying for a Coaching position or otherwise has a family relationship with a potential candidate, they shall be required to declare a conflict of interest and remove themselves from that part of the selection process considering candidates for the role being applied for, a substitute Committee person will be selected from the same Association by the Director of Rep Hockey Operations for either LMHA, WLMHA and GMHA Associations to assist with the evaluation of the role in question.
