The Ontario Hockey Federation will be
hosting five High Performance 1 clinics across Ontario this summer. Four
of the five clinics will take place over two-weekends and one will be
hosted over a 4 day stretch.
Hockey Canada High Performance 1 Policy Statement
All Head Coaches coaching Bantam, Midget, Junior 'A' teams that compete in Inter-provincial or National Championships or the highest level as determined by the Branch, must be High Performance 1 'Certified'. It is recommended that all Assistant Coaches be at minimum Development 1 'Trained'. This would take effect starting in the 2015/16 season, 2016/17 for Junior 'A' coaches.
How does that affect OHF Membership?
High Performance 1 Background
All Head Coaches coaching Male Bantam 'AAA' (Minor and Major), Female Bantam 'AA', Male Midget 'AAA' (Minor or Major) , Female Midget 'AA' and Junior 'A' must be High Performance-1 'Certified' according to the Hockey Canada policy by the 2015/16 season, 2016/17 season for Junior 'A'. It is recommended that all Assistant Coaches be a minimum Development 1 'Trained'.
The High Performance 1 Coaching Program is an enriched development experience for coaches, which features in-class sessions, a written assignment and a field evaluation. The in-class seminar will provide an exceptional opportunity for coaches to learn as it will feature outstanding presenters who have vast experience within high performance coaching environments. Following the in-class portion, coaches will further their development by completing, and receiving feedback on, a written assignment with support from a mentor. Participants will then be provided with an incredible opportunity for growth as a Hockey Canada trained evaluator will observe a practice and game and conduct interviews on the ice sessions and the coach’s overall program.
Throughout the process, coaches will be provided information and tasks which will challenge them with the ultimate goal of furthering key skills including critical thinking, problem solving, interacting, valuing and leadership.
High Performance 1 Application Process
The HP1 application form can be found by clicking here. Coaches will have the ability to rank in order what seminar they would like to attend. As we would like to be able to accommodate all requests, this may be difficult to do based on the number of coaches who require this certification.
Applicants will be notified and will be sent more information including payment instructions.
The total registration fee for all HP1 clinics is $1000.00 and includes lunches/snacks, all seminar materials, course work, written assignment evaluation, mentoring and practical field evaluation (in the OHF Area). Transportation and accommodation are the responsibility of the participant.
