Coach Resources

The West End Hockey League prides itself on being run entirely by dedicated volunteers and would not be able to exist without their help. The WEHL is asking every parent to volunteer for at least one of the many volunteer opportunities. Most jobs require only a little time, but are essential for the league to run smoothly. In addition to Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Trainers and Team Managers, the association needs active parents to help with such areas as Division Convener, Timekeeper, Registration, Equipment, Fundraising and Special Events, among many others. In some cases, training and/or clinics will be provided.
