House League Coaching Staff Overview (2021-2022)

 

Without coaches and trainers who volunteer their time and step behind the bench every season, there would be no minor hockey in Markham/Stouffville. These volunteers are the heart of any minor hockey association. It is an OWHA requirement that each team have certified bench staff consisting of a head coach, assistant coach(es), and at least one HTCP certified trainer.
