Clinics


2015 & 2016

There have been several changes made to the OMHA coaching certification processes commencing the 2015 & 2016 Season. Once confirmed, an outline of these changes will be posted here.  Trainer certification has remained the same.

At this time, the NFMHA will not be hosting any coaching clinics for the upcoming season. We encourage everyone requiring certification to visit the OMHA site at www.omha.net to view a complete listing of all current available clinics and locate a clinic date that works for you. 

If we choose to offer any clinics this season, we will post that information here.

Effective 2015 & 2016:  Clinic registration and payment will be completed online for all Associations and clinics.  To do this, Clinic Participants will have to create an eHockey Profile.  This will allow the OMHA to properly manage your certifications and create a detailed and accurate profile.  A link will be provided on this page for all clinic offerings.

*NOTE:  The Online Registration will ask you to "Select a Participant".  This will seem confusing as you have just entered your information.  Select yourself as the participant.

 

Refunds/Cancellations:

Refunds will be issued based on the following conditions:

•    Refund requests must be received 4 business days prior to the start of the clinic.
•    No refunds will be issued for participants who are late or absent.
