The annual meeting for prospective coaches will be held Monday, Sept. 18 at Spartan Arena at 6:30 p.m. Please bring your completed coaches' application, which can be found on this page.
The Rutland Junior Spartans welcomes new and returning coaches each season. If you are interested in coaching this year, whether you are new or returning, you need to fill out the coaching application found on this page and bring it to the coaches meeting. In addition, there is a background check that is required every two years. There is no coast to you for the background check, which can be found under the 'Safety' tab of the VSAHA website at www.vermonthockey.org
All coaches need to register with USA hockey.

Expectations of Coaches
Each coach or administrator is expected to be familiar with these values and their place in the organization.
Rutland Amateur Hockey Association is dedicated to introducing the game of hockey to young men and women and their families. We expect the pursuit of hockey excellence will be accompanied by appropriate sports behavior and respect for every individual as described in the various USA Hockey codes of conduct.
