For Coaches


Hello Coaches!

Welcome to the EFCLRA coach's page. This is where you will find all the resources and contact information you will needed to make you season enjoyable for you and your players. 2020/2021 will be a year to remember. Volunteering to coach a ringette team is a huge responsibility and Edmonton Ringette thanks you for everything you do.  As sport leagues begin to start up all over Canada, new rules and safety protocols are being developed to address the highest level of safety we can achieve for the players, coaches, officials, volunteers and our families.We will continue to update this page with helpful information and tools so please check back often.  If you have any questions or suggestions regarding coaching, please contact Ryan Devlin, our Coaching Director at coaching@edmontonringette.com

Ringette Alberta has recently published its RETURN TO RINGETTE GUIDELINES. This season will be much different than seasons in the past so we ask for everyone's patients during this time as we construct our policies and procedures for this season. Rules on cohort formation will require many more volunteers (coaches) than in the past. 

Information about how games and practices will be conducted are almost complete and the information will come out very soon. Alberta Health Services has provided us guidelines we must follow. The EFCLRA,  together with guidance from RAC, RAB, and BGL, will participate cohorts of 50 people for this season’s play. Due to how cohorts will operate and the numbers of teams, players, officials, and coaches allowed in a cohort, we will be forming more teams with smaller rosters this year. Sports cohorts will require you to commit to ONLY 1 sports cohort as a time. We know this will be a challenge for some coaches who coach multiple teams, referee and play themselves. We will need to expand our volunteer base.

Each team we form in a cohort will require 2 coaches. I know you all have many questions, especially about cohorts. I respectfully ask that you hold off on asking me specific questions regarding cohorts until our official EFCLRA statement. If you have questions about participating in multiple cohorts, you may call me or send me an email.

Some coaching courses have already begun. Please refer to COACHING COURSES AND SCHEDULES for updates.
