Responsibilities Of The Coach, Assistant Coach Or Manager

 

All team staff are expected to act as role models and ensure their actions reflect the commitment they have made to create a safe, social and welcoming environment. Coaches and their staff are valuable members of any team and we believe in the role they play in the overall experience of 3 on 3 hockey.  In our 3 on 3 league, coaches are not required to have a coaching certification.  We realize that many of you are parents of players and have volunteered for this position.  Below are loose guidelines of your responsibilities. You can change these as you like to best suit your coaching staff.

Coaches

  • Managing the team and organizing players week to week to ensure a high quality, inclusive experience for all players
  • Attend the coaches meeting to pick up the uniforms, coaches’ package, meet with the referee assignor and go over the rules and regulations
  • Read, understand and abide by the rules and regulations of the league
  • Ensure all players on their roster have registered with the league
  • Make every effort to ensure equal ice time for all players
  • Ensure that attendance is reflected accurately on the game sheet and that the jersey numbers are accurate
  •  Be respectful of the game officials and other coaches/players
  • Be present at all time in or very close to the dressing room while occupied by players to monitor the safety and bullying of players.  Female players must have a female parent assist with this should the coach be male. The girls dressing room will be off-limits to all males while players are changing before or after a game.
  • Submit any comments/concerns in writing to the league
  • A maximum of 3 coaches, assistant coaches or managers may be on the bench

Assistant Coaches

  • Assist with pre-game preparation
  • Assist with the supervision of players off and on the ice
  • Assist with supplies needed for games (jerseys / pucks / etc.)
  • Manage the bench during a game
  • Take responsibility for the team’s equipment and jerseys

Managers

  • Assist the coach in their responsibilities
  • Liaise with parents as necessary

What Is Re-Tiering And How Does It Work?

 

Before the season starts, an initial tiering is done based on the number of teams registered and the skill level identified by the coach and/or players during the registration process.  It is our goal to make 3 on 3 hockey competitive, entertaining and meaningful for players, coaches and parents.  Bear in mind that we do not have try-outs in this league and that the coaches/players self-identify their skill levels.

An initial schedule is drafted to give each team approximately 5 games.  After these games are played, we look at each teams’ performance to determine whether or not the competition in their division is too strong or too weak for their level of play.  Also taken into consideration are requests we receive from coaches to move their teams.  It is a huge process to undertake, which is why we are one of the few leagues in Canada to do this. It involves a completely new schedule. Doesn't sound like much on the surface, however we have hundreds of ice slots spread out over various city of Edmonton arenas. One must take into consideration appropriate times for age groups. Referee assignments is another situation that has to be rescheduled as well.

Some things to keep in mind when registering a team so that we can offer this benefit for teams:

  • The use of underage players should be avoided if possible. We take this into consideration when re-tiering. For example: if your team moves up a division, that underage may be playing against players 3 years his senior. This would occur when a team moves up a division and another team from an older division moves down into that same division with the underage player. 

 The fact that the schedule has to be reworked is also a huge factor. If we create too many divisions with odd numbers of teams this requires more ice. Usually, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our ice allocation continues to improve every year, in regards to times and locations however, for example, we may have one week with 73 ice slots and another with 28, so scheduling is a challenge to say the least.

  • The process for selecting teams to re-tier is based on stats, directors personally watching teams and input from all coaches. This is not an exact science and it is our hope that we can accommodate everyone in this process. Accuracy of information when registering is a key part of this process as well, in regards to level of hockey played as well as all other information on the registration form.

 Coaches are contacted prior to any movement of their team. Once all factors are considered, the team placements are confirmed and the remainder of the schedule is done up and posted.  Can there still be a blowout?  Sure there can. Can a key player get injured or sick and change how a team performs? Of course.  There are many factors that can affect a teams’ performance and while we attempt to take into consideration many of these, we cannot account for all of them.

We may also re-tier for playoffs. This is to even out the competition level of each division and make the league even more enjoyable for everyone

What Are Dedicated Spares?

 

Dedicated spares are essentially affiliated players.  These are players who may be registered to play full time with another team and will spare for another or players who have registered to only spare for a particular team.  As with all players, dedicated spares must also register to be covered by our insurance but do not pay any money to the league to join. We ask that spares – whether from the general spare list or dedicated to a team – pay the coach $20.00.  We do not regulate or collect this.  It is incumbent on the coach of each to team to determine if they are going to collect this money and if so, what it will be spent on or how it will be divided between the parents of the registered players. 

 All dedicated spares should play in the division which is of equal caliber or better than their skill level.  Our divisions are split based upon skill level so we may have Bantam Minor, Bantam Major and Bantam Elite.  All players are in the same age group however their skill levels are quite different. 

 A player can spare for a team in a higher division but at no time may a player spare for a lower division.  For example:

  • a dedicated spare is a full-time player for a Bantam Minor team and sparing for another in the same division.  After re-tiering, the second team is moved to the PeeWee Major division. The dedicated spare now becomes ineligible to spare for the team moved to the lower division
  • a dedicated spare is a full-time player for a Bantam Minor team and sparing for another in the same division.  After re-tiering, the players team is moved to the PeeWee Major division. The dedicated spare may still be a dedicated spare for the team that remained in the Bantam Minor division.

What are Free Agents

and Free Agent Teams?

 

 If a player does not have a team to play on they can register as "free agents” and we will place them on a team.  We do accept friend requests but players must be in the same age division and skill level.  If you are registering a player with 8 friends you may want to consider putting in your own team as it is difficult to accommodate such requests.

 Players will initially be placed on teams but this may change until all registrations are received. Prior to scheduling games, we review all the free agent teams to ensure they are balanced in skill level. 

 Free agent teams are dependent upon volunteer parents to act as coaching staff.  We do not require coaches to be certified and we understand that not everyone has coached a hockey team.  For some parents, this is their first voyage into the realm of coaching but you are not alone.  Many of the free agent teams coaching staff are in the same boat but remember, the role of coach can be rewarding, energizing and fun.

 Historically, free agent teams work best with a number of coaching staff.  You may have a roster of 4 assistant coaches and 2 managers or 3 coaches and 2 assistant coaches.  It doesn’t matter.  As working parents there are a number of constraints on your time.  You may have other children involved in other sports or work out of town.  Regardless, it works better when there are a number of volunteers to help cover off the coaching duties.
