Please be aware that online courses are a webinar format and only available on specific dates (with registration deadlines). For registration, available courses and more info, please visit Coach.ca.
In support of training and development, Calgary AA Ringette will reimburse $50/coach for one Multi-Sport Module, up to a maximum of 5 coaches per team for the 2018 CRCs. Please note: Additional costs (either extra coaches attending CRCs or course fees exceeding $50) will need to be covered either personally or by the team (at team discretion). Receipts can be submitted to the AA Treasurer.
Mandatory Coaches Meetings are usually held at the beginning of October—all head coaches must attend one meeting. Assistant coaches and managers are also welcome to attend (optional).
