Bench Staff Requirements 2021-2022 Season

The GTHL will be following Hockey Canada and Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) requirements for coaches entering the 2021-22 season. The league will operate all portions of our clinics virtually and coaches will receive full credit for participation in virtual training. There will be no requirement to attend in person and virtual clinics will be operated until the league can operate in-class and on-ice portions for large groups.

The outlined requirements will be for all coaches (house league, select, A, AA, & AAA) who wish to be rostered to a team. Previously trained coaches may have attained many of the requirements.

  • Head Coaches taking a clinic for the first time will not be required to have a certified status.
  • All Head Coaches who require a Development 1 – Certified status but do not have one, can be approved to a roster and considered “in-progress” if they have submitted the 3 certification steps for an in-season evaluation. For information click HERE.
  • Coaches with an expiring or expired certified status are required to participate in professional development to maintain their certified status. For more information on certification maintenance click HERE.
  • A Head Coach can be conditionally approved if they are enrolled in a GTHL Development 1 clinic or a Development 1 clinic within the Ontario Hockey Federation before December 31st.
  • Trainer Level 2 will not be a requirement.


***BELOW ARE REQUIREMENTS ONLY. CLINIC LINKS WILL NOT BE ACTIVATED UNTIL THE REGISTRATION SYSTEM IS OPEN AND CLINICS ARE SCHEDULED.

As of May 15th, 2021 eHockey can no longer be accessed. Registration for clinics and to check qualifications will be done through the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR 3.0).

If you have been registered for hockey previously as a Player, Coach, Official or Trainer you will be able to view your profile and sign up for a clinic by creating an account in the Hockey Canada Registry. If you are new to hockey you will be required to create a new account and profile.

There are some qualifications on your profile that may not appear. We are aware of this issue and Hockey Canada is working on updating the system.
