Coaches


See our FAQs blog post for common questions, such as:

  • Can I invite a helper to assist on the ice? — NO! ALL COACHES, ASSISTANT COACHES, NON-COHORT COACHES MUST BE APPROVED BY SCRA BEFORE JOINING ANY TEAM ACTIVITY! Do not let anyone on the ice without prior approval by SCRA. Only those team staff listed in SportzSoft are approved by SCRA and registered by us with RAB. No one else can be on the ice or on the bench.
  • Do coaches need to wear masks? — YES! See the Ringette Calgary memo on face masks, and the RAB Return to Ringette Guidelines (V 2.0) mask use chart on page 4.

Please frequently check the Ringette Alberta Return to Ringette webpage and the Ringette Calgary “Covid” section of their website for these latest updates and more:

  • Coaches can contact the service provider 1-2 days prior to your scheduled session to advise of any specific skills you would like to work on

Dryland

  • Sample drills and important notes for the gym practices are available below
  • Before your gym practice, please be sure to check the important notes for the specific gym you are using to ensure your team brings the required equipment.
