This bulletin is for all of our long-time, returning, and new coming parents or volunteers who are seeking the opportunity to give back to the grassroots of minor hockey. PCMHA is committed to the long term development of our young athletes and in order to provide them with the most fulfilling minor hockey experience it is imperative to have proper instruction and continue to support and foster a coaching faculty.
Hockey Canada and the NCCP have various coaching certification requirements depending on which level you choose to coach. There are a number of pathways and entry points as well as some risk management/awareness items that are necessary to complete.
For those who are interested in coaching or participating as on-ice helpers you must first complete the following:
Criminal Record Check
Respect In Sport
Concussion Awareness Training Tool
Once you have completed those items you can participate in practices.
In order to be further “rostered” as a Head Coach or Assistant Coach on a team – you must complete the respective Hockey Canada Clinic for the level of hockey that you will be coaching.
Further Information can be found on the Coaches Corner>Education/Requirements page.

PCMHA is pleased to announce our Head Coach Positions for Pee Wee A1 and Bantam A1.
Pee Wee A1: Juan Maldonado
Juan comes to us from Saskatchewan where he finished his playing career. He is originally from Burnaby and played AAA at the Burnaby Winter Club, advancing to Jr. B in Saskatchewan before moving onto play Jr. A in Ontario where he received a scholarship to Marian University. He returned to BC joining the coaching staff of the Port Moody Jr. B Panthers before heading back to Saskatchewan on a job offer playing at an elite level in the competitive Senior AAA circuit.
Juan brings with him an energetic attitude and a staff that is focused on developing our top Pee Wee group.
“As Director of Hockey, I was very pleased with the enthusiasm and energy Juan will bring to the rink, He is amp’d up to work with this 11 and 12 year old group in these important development years” says Coach Doneau.
Bantam A1 : Greg Ross
Greg comes from Langley and recently coached Bantam and Midget in Cloverdale. He has experience helping at the Major Midget Level and served as the assistant coach with the U18 Surrey Eagles spring program.
He comes highly regarded as a good teacher with current ideas on where the game is going. His experience shows him to be organized, clear in his expectations and a good communicator. He has a good plan for this age group with a strong balance of skill development, technical development and tactical teaching that our Bantam A1 players should be learning at this level.
Please join us in welcoming both Juan and Greg to our Pirate family!!!
