Coaching Opportunities

With the number of kids that we have enrolled, the more coaches we can have on the ice makes for a better environment for all involved.  For those that have indicated on the Club Website of your interest, we thank you all.

If I could kindly ask for any individual that has indicated they would like to coach, or any individual that plans on coaching, please email me directly so I can establish an updated list.  Please note that you will need to register with USA Hockey, complete the state background requirements and submit this information to the Arlington Hockey Club.

We will have a mandatory coaching meeting on Thursday night, the 24th of October from 7:00P – 7:45P at the Ed Burns Arena.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the rink!

 

Respectfully,

Jimmy Conway & The Arlington Hockey Club Board.

Director of Instructional & Developmental Programs
