SportsEngine Registration: Essex Youth Hockey Association

2022-2023 Coaching Registration


Welcome to the EYHA Coaching Application Form


Thank you for your interest in coaching for Essex Youth Hockey.  

Coaching excellence is the foundation of the health and success of our program.  

EYHA is always looking for strong coaching candidates but please be advised, we regularly get more requests than we have open positions. Completion of this application does not guarantee you will be assigned to a team.

The Head Coach works with the 2nd VP for Travel and the President to make recommendations to the board about naming coaches for EYHA's travel teams. 

The criteria for coaching selection includes evidence of alignment with the following core values:

SPORTSMANSHIP: Foremost of all values is to learn a sense of fair play. Be humble in victory, gracious in defeat. We will foster friendship with teammates and opponents alike. 

RESPECT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL: Treat all others as you expect to be treated. 

INTEGRITY: Work to foster honesty and fair play beyond mere strict interpretation of the rules and regulations of the game. 

PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE AT THE INDIVIDUAL, TEAM, AND ORGANIZATIONAL LEVELS: Each member of the organization, whether player, volunteer or staff, should seek to perform each aspect of the game to the highest level of his or her ability. 

ENJOYMENT: It is important for the hockey experience to be fun, satisfying and rewarding for the participant. 

LOYALTY: We aspire to teach loyalty to the ideals and fellow members of the sport of hockey. 

TEAMWORK: We value the strength of learning to work together. The use of teamwork is reinforced and rewarded by success in the hockey experience.
