Female U18 AAA Coaching Opportunities

Hockey Winnipeg is now accepting applications to coach in the Female U18 AAA program for the 2021/2022 season with the Winnipeg Avros and the Winnipeg Ice hockey teams.


All applicants must have the appropriate coaching certifications as outlined in the Hockey Manitoba coaching requirements. Please note the coaching certification requirement to head coach at the Female U18 AAA level is High Performance 1 (HP1).


We are seeking intelligent, organized, and respectful coaches with a high level of proficiency in hockey development both on and off the ice. Ideal candidates will have excellent communication and leadership skills along with the ability to provide individual attention and feedback to a variety of players. Selected coaches will be dedicated to being a mentor and role model, ensure all players on their team feel valued, and have a general understanding of athletic development.


Coaching staffs will report directly to the Hockey Winnipeg Female Council. Also, due to the high level of commitment involved with these programs, coaches will be provided with an honorarium based on their qualifications.


Interested applicants must forward their hockey coaching cover letter and resume to Brent Poplawski at development@hockeywinnipeg.ca. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2021.

June 5 – Update on Female AAA Tryouts

As you may be aware, Hockey Canada has recently announced a “Return to Hockey” statement regarding the COVID-19 situation. It has been decided that each Member Branch of Hockey Canada, including Hockey Manitoba, will be given the opportunity to work with the public health authorities in their respective regions to determine when and how it will be safe to return to hockey in areas that fall under their jurisdiction. Please be advised that we are working with Hockey Manitoba on our local procedures and that we will be announcing the AAA Female hockey tryout dates and structure over the next few weeks.

Therefore, it is very important that players continue to register for the AAA Female tryouts if they are interested in playing AAA Female hockey next season. Although the situation is still unfolding, you must register in order to participate in the tryouts.

Thank you
