Apply to Coach

Interested in coaching with EGHA this season?

Please complete the Application to Coach (or be a Bench Staff Member) form.

The Coach Selection Committee will review submissions with category directors at the time of team creation and will contact individuals selected to be head coaches. Head coaches will select supporting bench staff.

For bench staff who are selected by head coaches, but have not completed this submission of interest form, the form will still be required to be added to an official team sheet. 

Who needs to complete the coach application?

All persons interested in coaching, assistant coaching or supporting a team as a female bench staff will need to complete the coach application.

What details do I need to include in the coach application?

Please be prepared to provide personal details (such as name, date of birth and address) as well as your coaching history and experience and certifications.

I have applied, what is next?

Our Coach Selection Committee and Category Directors will meet to review coach applications in late August, early September. Coaches being selected as head coaches will be contacted by the Category Directors. Head Coaches will then be able to select assistant coaches and female bench staff from the list of applicants, and may also solicit further help from other volunteers on their team.

I have questions about the coach selection process. Who do I contact?

You may contact the applicable Category Director our our Coach Selection Committee Chair at

What qualifications do I need in order to coach?
