Certifications/Documents Required for All Staff

The OWHA has updated their Team Official Qualification Requirements, see below:

 2022-2023 OWHA Team Official Certification Requirements

Head Coaches must have the required level of certification for their division and tier/level to be rostered and approved by the OWHA. WGMHA strongly recommends that Assistant Coaches have the OWHA recommended level of certification for their division and tier/level, as well.

Please review to ensure that all staff have all required certifications. For those wanting to register for a coaching clinic, please click on the following link to access the available coaching clinics and courses. 

OWHA Coaching Clinics

Staff can also register for Coaching Clinics through other OHF registered associations (Alliance, OMHA, etc.).

Please note that any staff wanting to register for a clinic or course must also create a Spordle Account; instructions to do this are also found on the coaching clinic site.

Please keep checking the site in case new courses and clinics are added.

If you have any issues accessing your HCR account or registering for a Spordle Account, please email [email protected] for support (WGMHA does not have access to Spordle Accounts or staff profiles in the Hockey Canada Registry).


All staff must also have the following certifications/documentation:

Please note that WGMHA does not reimburse for Vulnerable Sector Checks.


The check can be completed on-line via the Waterloo Region Police Services by clicking on the following link: Waterloo Region Police Services Vulnerable Sector Check
