Coach Selection Policy and Process
The coach selection policy aims to provide a fair, transparent, and consistent selection of coaches from a set of coach candidates. Our goal is to identify coaches that best exemplify the goals, values and strategic objectives of the St. Albert Raiders program and St. Albert Minor Hockey Association.
There may be times when an individual player significantly exceeds the skill level of their age group and are also superior in skill and ability to the next division. In rare circumstances like this, it may be beneficial to the player and the AAA/AA program to accelerate this player to the next division.
Playing hockey at this level is a significant financial commitment for families. These policies are intended to be fair and transparent.
