Instructor Clinic Registration

Ringette Manitoba is looking for of some high energy dynamic Ringette players who are interested in becoming Player Development Instructors to share their love of the game with all of the younger Ringette players in Manitoba!

Ringette Manitoba’s Player Development Instructor Clinic will certify you to work at all Ringette Manitoba camps and clinics during the season including our Player Development Academy, Ringette4U Program, Gym Ringette and Come Try Ringette Events. Applicants must be 16 or turning 16 by December 31st, 2020. There will be no exceptions. 

This season, registration for the Instructor Clinic will NOT be on a first come, first serve basis. Those interested will need to complete an online application. This does not guarantee acceptance in the clinic. All applications will be reviewed and those successful will be provided with registration information. A maximum of 20 applicants will be selected, based on the information provided. 

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to confirm a date for the clinic. Once we are able to book a date those accepted will be notified of the date and given a link to complete registration. The time commitment for the clinic will be approximately 10 hours of classroom/on ice training. After the completion of the clinic, participants are required to shadow a Level 4 Instructor for one ice time, and complete five training hours. Training hours are just that, training, therefore these are not paid hours. Once the clinic and all on ice hours are completed you will be ranked at a Level 1 and paid at that rate, until you receive an evaluation recommending you to a higher level. There is no cost to complete the application of interest. If selected to register the cost will be $100.00 plus GST – includes on-ice instructor soft shell jacket.
