If you will be volunteering as a Team Official (coach, assistant coach, trainer or manager) with any WMHA team for the upcoming season, you are required to complete the following training by July 31st.

Training will cover:

  • Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training for Team Officials

We encourage all Team Officials to complete this training as soon as possible in order to meet the July 31st deadline so that teams can be rostered on time.
