Trainers (Oshawa NASC Hockey - Durham Region's #1 Instructional Hockey Program)


The Hockey Trainer Certification Program [HTCP] is a risk management and safety education program for the volunteer hockey trainer. The ultimate goal of the program is to have all Hockey Trainers implement effective risk management on their own teams, where safety is the first priority at all times, both on and off the ice.

All teams are required to have a qualified trainer.
