Instructions for Coaches needing BC Hockey Certification Reimbursement:
If you took a Coaching Clinic during the Season and are rostered to an LMHA team, you will be reimbursed upon CERTIFICATION. At the end of the season, the Director of Player and Coach Development will ask you to drop off your workbook. He will then sign off on the workbook and submit your letter of verification to BC Hockey. BC Hockey reviews these and then mails you a letter to confirm your certification. This letter is what is to be submitted to LMHA for course reimbursement along with your receipt. These letters often take until June or July to be received.
*If you have a receipt for Respect in Sport or HCSP or a Coaching Clinic you can submit the receipt directly to the LMHA Treasurer on or after October 15th of each season. Cheques will be processed at the end of the month your request was submitted providing you are fully certified and have completed all required components. Please allow a minimum of 3 - 4 weeks depending on the date of your request and please do not submit your request until all certification documents have been received. In your submission, please include:
- Mailing Address
- Phone Number
- Email Address
- Clinic Certificate of Completion
- Dated Receipt
*Once a reimbursement request is received, LMHA will confirm that you are rostered to an LMHA team. LMHA will then contact you when your cheque is ready.
Criminal Record Checks must be completed every 3 years with July 31st of the third year being the expiry date. All coaches, managers, team officials and volunteers are required to complete a CRC. We encourage all volunteers who are considering being a team official to please ensure they complete this process prior to the start of the season. LMHA will not roster an official who does not have a valid CRC, RIS and CATT.
The Criminal Records Review Program has made numerous changes to the process in order to enforce a streamlined submission procedure for all organizations. Fortunately, applicants can now once again complete this process online. Please see details below:
