If you are coaching players who will be hitting (Peewee in AB but it's Bantam in QC I've heard) you will need to attend a hitting clinic. If the team is high level bantam or midget I believe it falls under the "competitive" stream instead of the "developmental" stream an then it's a different certification scheme altogether. I believe all these courses are one day affairs and the minor hockey association usually pays for them.
Here's a link for you, all that info is off the top of my head but I went through most of it last year.
Thanks alot man I appreciate it,I'm going to try to coach Peewee A in Quebec and I do one day want to coach Midget AAA and Juniors but that's a long way away.
So what I need is an Ethics,First Aid and Intro to coaching course and then I'm a certified Single letter non-contact coach ?
