SHA Coaching Certification Program
i) For the safety of all participants, it is mandatory in all levels of Minor hockey within Saskatchewan that any registered Team Official (coach, assistant coach, trainer, manager, stick boy, etc.) guest coach or volunteer who is on the ice for any practice must wear a CSA approved helmet with the chin strap of the helmet securely fastened. Violations of this policy can be reported to the SHA by any concerned party, whether a registered participant, stakeholder or member of the public.
Violations must be submitted to the SHA in writing, including photo or video evidence of the violation. The submission must provide the date(s) and location(s) of the violation as well as the names of the offending participant(s). Any team official, team and/or association found to be non-compliant with the SHA coach helmet regulation will be subject to sanctions from both the Minor Hockey Association and/or the SHA.
Sanctions may include but are not limited to:
i) Registered team officials may be suspended.
ii) Minor Hockey Association (and members) not being able to enter SHA Provincial Playoffs.
iii) Minor Hockey Association (and members) not being able to host any SHA sanctioned event.
iv) Minor Hockey Association (and members) not being able to attend any SHA sanctioned event.
