Coaches and Volunteers
Volunteers and Coaches are an essential part of most minor sports programs. Every organization relies on these dedicated volunteers to ensure that their programs run smoothly and as efficient as possible.
Our structured program enables our volunteers and coaches to learn the skills required for the upcoming years! From the basics of learning how to be an on-ice or off-ice assistant to learning the role and responsibilities of being a Head Coach, we have it covered.
The London Ice Dawgs will teach you everything from how to use proper game and rotation sheets to utilizing your ice time. We also instruct you on how to properly and fairly rotate the players to ensure that equal ice is offered to all, but most importantly to be committed to Fun, Participation and Development!
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the London Ice Dawgs, and didn't state so during the registration process, simply fill in the online form below and we will contact you with further details.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
All coaches and on ice helpers must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet (cage not required) and skates to enter the ice surface.
Hockey sticks and hockey gloves are recommended
Jackets will be available for our volunteers and must be worn by all coaches and on ice helpers. These can be picked up at the attendance table located in the arena lobby. We ask that you return the jackets on a hanger at the end of your ice time. If you would like to wear your own jacket it must be BLACK and must not have any other league or hockey school logos.
Black track pants or warm up pants ONLY! No blue jeans, shorts or khakis on the ice or the bench!
ABSOLUTELY NO SHOOTING PUCKS! Our players are very young and could easily get hurt by an adultís shot.
Please remember to address our players by their names (as seen on helmets)
Always be positive when speaking to our players
Remember our mission statement: Fun, Participation and Development!
Please remember that parents who have not registered as an on-ice helper or coach are not allowed on the ice for any reason!
