Coaching Requirments


You can visit the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) site to look up your current qualifications and the expiry date of your VSC.  It  is also where team officials can sign up for or find information on any Hockey Alberta Clinics. 

  • If your HCR profile is not with BAHA, you will have to request a transfer. To transfer your profile, we require your full name and date of birth.
  • For coaching requirements please see the table in the link below "Coaching Requirement Table".
  • If you still have questions about a transfer or credentials, please email Shea at

2. Respect in Sport - Activity Leader Certificate

The Respect in Sport Activity Leader/Coach Program educates coaches and activity leaders to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination. It may be the single most important training leaders receive to assist in creating a safe, healthy and respectful environment for all participants. This is a minimum requirement for all coaches.

This course expires every four years. If you are unsure when your course expires, please look up your certificate in your Hockey Locker.
