Update to Coaching Certification for Competitive Introduction Box or Field


A Message on Behalf of Rick Phillips, OLA VP Coaching:


Greetings coaches, and welcome to the 2024 season! An important update has been made to the Coaching Requirements for Competitive Introduction Coaches in Box and Field sectors. Coaches who completed a Competitive Introduction clinic in 2023 (in either box or field) will not be required to complete their coaching workbook as part of their certification.

Coaches who took a Competitive Introduction clinic in 2022 or earlier will have until September 30, 2024 to complete and submit their workbook for evaluation. Failure to meet this deadline will result in loss of Competitive Introduction certification. Coaches who are required to complete their workbook may contact Peter (peter@ontariolacrosse.com) to receive a passcode to complete their workbook online.

Please ensure that coaches within your organization are aware of this change. For questions related to coaching, please reach me at vpcoaching@ontariolacrosse.com.
