The Hockey Canada Coach 1 and Coach 2 clinics are now offered on demand and will replace the old “Intro to Coach” and “Coach Level” qualifications. These courses will be followed up with schedule continuous education sessions hosted by the NOHA. Please note the additional sessions are built into the costs of your initial course.


Hockey University has been phased out, and there is no longer a Hockey University Online Coach 1/2 prerequisite.


Please contact NOHA Technical Director Jacob Brown, with any questions concerning clinic enrollment or qualification needs.

Note: Some clinics are still under construction for the season. We appreciate your patience.

In any contact sport, some injuries are inevitable. Hockey is no exception, and with the speed of the game, the presence of skate blades, sticks, and boards, the potential for injury always exists. Many of the common injuries can be avoided with proper preparation and good protection.

The HTCP is designed to educate people in the prevention, recognition and management of hockey-related injuries and is the only sport-specific risk management, injury management and safety education program in Ontario.
