Stricter Coaching Guidelines Mandated For High School Sports
The sports, including hockey, track and field, football, and rugby, will require all coaches to hold certification in those sports, to be eligible to coach, starting immediately.
“One big change will be in High Risk Sports. We are currently in the process of getting our coaches training required according to OPHEA and OFSAA,” said LKSSAA coordinator James Clarke when talking about the many changes happening with LKSSAA sports this year.
The move follows OPHEA’s, Ontario’s governing body for sports and physical education, recommendation to OFSAA.
Coaching requirements in these sports will be mandatory beginning this September.
