“A good coach can change a game; a great coach can change a life.”
~John Wooden

Coaches and bench staff are essential to the game and MDRA is dedicated to supporting you and to help make your season a successful one!

MDRA needs coaches for all regional teams from Fun 1 to U19! In order to coach you will need to complete specific NCCP coaching courses by November 30, 2023.

The specific qualifications for each division and level of play can be found at the Ringette Ontario Team Staff Qualification Pathways which also has some important documents and resources to help along the way. If there are resources you need and cannot find let us know and we will try to help.
