The Wheatland Wranglers Hockey Association is committed to excellence in coaching. Both female and male coaches are encourage to apply as a team head coach or assistant coach.
Coaches play a significant role in mentorship, training and leadership to the players and teams. Many coaches are either brand new to coaching or experienced and want to help specifically with the female program. Coach mentorship will facilitate learning how to create a practice plan, a season goal, individual skill development and team management. Currently hockey in all associations has fewer and fewer coaches as they don’t have the proper support to help them succeed and less people are stepping up for this role. Coach mentorship is what will help set our program up for success in proper training and support of our volunteer coaches who dedicate so much time to the success of our players.
Please complete and return a coaching application form
(SAME FORM AS Strathmore Minor Hockey) if you are interested in a coaching position (head coach or assistant coach). The Wheatland Wranglers/SMHA coaching committee will conduct personal interviews with all head coach applicants. The code of conduct agreement for coaches is located on the second page of the form and carries with it the same implications as the player and parent agreements.
You can submit your application online here.
