BMHA Accepting A/AA and MD Coach Applications for 2020-21 Season - UPDATED
Submitted By Rob Symons on Monday, February 10, 2020
BMHA is now accepting applications to coach A/AA and MD teams for Minor Peewee, Major Peewee, Minor Bantam, Major Bantam, Minor Midget, and Major Midget.

Deadline for Applications is Monday, February 24.


Note: Minor Atom and Major Atom Coach Application process will begin at later time, coinciding with the new Atom Pathway.

Coach Selection Process:

An experienced committee will make the decisions regarding the coaching positions. The committee will employ a consensus-building mentality throughout the selection process.  Voting takes place as necessary.

Committee members are declared in conflict of interest where family members are involved at a certain level, and as such have no input to the decision.

Applicants are asked to complete the online form available via link in this news article. Additional emails to committee members are strongly discouraged.

The application has a number of detailed questions and you are encouraged to thoughtfully answer each item. Each question has character limits so please be brief and succinct in your responses. 

Selecting coaches is a time-consuming endeavor with the committee spending as much time as necessary to find the most qualified and capable individual for a particular team.  The process generally involves the following:

1. Each of the committee members will review the applications and provide an initial score based on the submission.

2. The applicants will be screened based on the score and an initial interview will take place - potentially by phone - with one or more members of the committee.

3. The final screened list may be called in for a longer in-person meeting with the committee.

4. The committee will meet and come to a final consensus on the candidates based on all available information.

5. The committee will recommend a final slate of coaches to the Board of Directors who will then be asked to approve the list. 

Not all applicants will be interviewed.  If the committee believes that there is a strong applicant for a given team, then that individual may be appointed without further interviews.

Note: All members of a coaching staff (head coach, assistant, trainer, and manager) must ultimately be approved by the BMHA Board of Directors.


A/AA and MD Coaching applicants must be submitted no later than Monday, February 24.

Thank you in advance for your interest.
