Hockey Edmonton will begin the Coach Mentorship Program starting in the 2021-22 season; for Hockey Edmonton member associations (Districts, Operating Areas, and Athletic Clubs) only. Mentors will be recruited, trained, and assigned to teams. Mentors will follow strict protocol and procedures to provide the most professional and effective support to our member coaches.
