DCMHA Officiating Clinic
Hope everyone is having a good summer. With
hockey season just around the corner, it is that time of year again for
clinics. Our Dawson Creek Clinic is scheduled for September 20th
starting at 9:00 a/m in the Kin Arena. Please make sure you register
early and complete all the pre task components. Anyone over the age of 18
who has not had a criminal record check done in the past 3 years will need to
complete that as well. It can be done online through BC Hockey. I
look forward to seeing everyone at the clinics and to another year at the rink.
If you have any questions, let me know. And don’t forget to spread the

Hockey season fast approaching, DCMHA has started its plans for next season. This year, the Executive will again utilize a Coach Selection Committee consisting of a combination of experienced, highly qualified individuals – both from the Executive and beyond our organization. The Coach Selection Committee has accepted the responsibility of ensuring the best coaching candidates are recommended for the Head Coaching positions. Although the process is in place, DCMHA is requesting your assistance. As members of our organization you have a vested interest in our success as well. If you are aware of a potential Coaching Candidate that you feel could be a valuable asset to our Association please encourage them to apply and send in an application attention: Mike Harris – DCMHA VP Hockey Operations. A link to the application form is provided on the DCMHA Website. Interviews will be conducted at the discretion of the Coach Selection Committee once we have received all interested applicants. Thank you to all coaching candidates for submitting your application & your interest in DCMHA Hockey.

Respect In Sport Parent Program
DCMHA has made the Respect In Sport Parent Program (RISP) mandatory this hockey season for at least 1 parent per child. By November 30th a parent needs their completion number handed into DCMHA. If the DCMHA office have not received the confirmation of program completion the child will NOT be able to participate in any games scheduled after November 30th. This is a BC Hockey
course and can be taken online.
The Respect in Sport Parent Program is an effective and informative online training program for parents of active children. This one hour online certification program reinforces a parents role in a child or youth’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviours, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals (such as coaches and officials) play. This program empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child’s fun and camaraderie of the activity.
The number one reason cited for coaches, managers and officials of all ages leaving a sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. Let the Respect in Sport Parent Program help assert proper parent behaviours to create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for all parties involved.
