Assistant Coaches in Training

Those of you that have older CORA players helping you, here are the requirements

“Assistant Coaches in Training (those who are 16 or 17 years old as of December 31, 2016) are required to attend a CSI or CI clinic in accordance with the level of play of the team whose bench they are on.”

This means:

  • Under 16 (as of December 31, 2016) – not really CiTs but more helpers
    • As long as they are on any TRF they can come on ice for practices
    • Cannot be on bench during games until they are over 16.
  • Over 16 (as of December 31, 2016)
    • Practices only – PRC
    • Games - on TRF +  PRC + CSI/CI depending on level
