Certification Deadline – January 18, 2021

In late November, Hockey Manitoba made the decision to extend the 2020 – 2021 certification deadline for Coaches and Officials past December 1, 2020.  The deadline extension applied to Coaches, Managers, Safety Persons, and Officials who had not yet obtained the required certification for their position.

Hockey Manitoba has made the decision to set Monday January 18, 2021 as the deadline for coaches, officials, managers and safety persons to obtain their certification.

We have added the following online coaching and officiating clinic dates and would like to remind all team officials that this will be the last opportunity for coaches and officials to get their certification training for this season.

  • January 15 – Checking Skills 1 – 6:00pm – 8:00pm
  • January 16 – Coach 2 – 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
