GTHL supports MLSE Foundation and Scotiabank’s Hockey Coach Education Program

MLSE Foundation and Scotiabank are launching the Hockey Coach Education Program to provide equitable opportunities for Black, Indigenous and other racialized youth across Ontario to obtain hockey coaching certifications and connect them to coaching positions in their community.

The mission is to change the game and make hockey a more inclusive, diverse, and accessible sport for players and coaches alike.

To change the face of hockey, MLSE Foundation, Scotiabank, and the Greater Toronto Hockey League are committed to providing opportunities for underrepresented youth to be involved in the game at the coaching level. The aim is to improve representation in leadership positions to inspire a diverse generation of youth to engage in hockey. The program will also provide pathways and connections for youth coaches to increase employment opportunities and facilitate community involvement through sport.

The GTHL will assist MLSE Foundation in connecting youth coaches to further education opportunities for those interested in obtaining Level 2 certification.

In addition, youth coaches will be provided with a Hockey Coaches Kit including essential supplies to assist in getting started behind the bench.
