Coach - Manager meeting 2021

Coaching can be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences for adults in minor hockey. Hockey Saint-Laurent is constantly on the lookout for new and experienced coaches to join our team of coaches at every level. Coaches need not be parents and, in fact, we strongly encourage non-parents to join the Association. Anyone who knows of potential candidates is asked to contact the Director of coaches directeur.entraineur@hockeystl.com.

The initial application process and selection of coaches takes place during the summer months and into early September.  Please do not delay in pursuing these positions, as there is much preparation and development work that is better started before the start of the season.

To apply to coach with the Hockey Saint-Laurent, please complete the online Coaching Application here. Applications are required for new and returning coaches.

If you have any questions, please contact our Director of coaches at directeur.entraineur@hockeystl.com.
