2019 Coaches and Evaluations

We would like to welcome the selected coaches for the 2019 ball hockey season.

We have received several applications and would like to thank all those who submitted forms.

Some of our teams do not require evaluations and will hear directly from the coach in the next 7-10 days.

Currently the only available pad that is usable at the moment for evaluations is the Lefroy Arena, however because of its location we thought it might be inconvenient to those coming from North Barrie so we are currently waiting to hear from the Town of Essa regarding the Thornton Arena.

As soon as this information becomes available we will update this current page and notify all our members with dates and times

At this time we do not have a coach for our Barrie Tyke team. Marco will be in contact with the roster shortly to try and gather volunteers to help out with this team.

We are also missing a coach on one of our Barrie Peewee teams. If any volunteers are interested we ask that you submit an application ASAP.

Last Call Registration

South Simcoe Ball Hockey Leagues is just wrapping up its registration for the 2019 spring season for the Barrie, Bradford, Georgina and Innisfil areas.

Online registration will be officially closed on March 24th however some of our younger divisions Squirt, Tyke and Novice to be particular may close sooner as we are overwhelmed with registrations.

All registered participants will be sent an email in early April with more information regarding our player evaluations and our selected coaches.


Become A Referee

A new season of Ball Hockey is quickly approaching and there is a requirement that all officials must be registered and certified in order to referee in any OBHF sanctioned league.

Referee training is starting and if you want to officiate this season, now is the time to register and attend a clinic in your area. For information and registration please click here.

Officiating ball hockey is a great way to stay in touch with the game, get some exercise and earn a bit of money.

Ice Hockey Goalie Incentives

Goaltenders require abilities such as physical strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, balance, endurance, as well as the command of technique, systems and strategies. Many years of practice and training go into becoming a goaltender to enhance the level of individual performance.

Year after year ball hockey leagues across the country continue to have many parents upset when scores run high. In most cases one team may be equipped with an experienced ice hockey goalie while other teams are just rotating through their roster on a weekly basis just to get by.

As a league our main priority is for the children to have fun, however we do understand that sometimes when a team is not equipped with a proper goalie it may get frustrating for everyone at times.

This year we will be offering an incentive to all ice hockey goalies tyke through atom registering with the South Simcoe Ball Hockey Leagues.

Families registering their children as a goalie must do so online (Innisfil, Barrie, Bradford or Georgina) but must also fill out our goalie application form which gives us a little more information on goalie background.

Once we confirm that your child has been playing on a team as a full time goalie the league will refund $85 back to the family as we get closer to our Championship weekend in late June.

Coaching Incentive

Ball Hockey is a sport that requires many volunteers however as the league continues to grow we want to ensure that all our teams are equipped with certified head coaches. This will ensure that all our players have equal opportunity when it comes to leadership behind the bench.

The league will still accept applications from anyone wishing to coach however only those that are certified will receive first opportunity to take on a team and benefit from this cash incentive.

Player fees must be paid in full upon registration however those selected to coach the 2019 season will receive a refund of $80 once the season gets on it way.

If you are interested in applying for a coaching position please click here

Thank You

Respect in Sport

Coaches, teachers, and parents serve as role models for sportsmanlike behaviors in children.  The behaviors illustrated by those aforementioned are clearly sometimes outside the lines of sportsmanship. The question that arises is, Where did those athletes learn unsportsmanlike behaviors? And the more pressing question for sports leaders, What is the role of sport in nurturing sportsmanlike or unsportsmanlike behavior?

It is contended that the choices made by an athlete to engage in sportsmanlike conduct depend, in part, on how the sport is structured by administrators, coaches, parents, and fans. Children learn moral behavior from engaging with others, watching the behaviors of others, and/or being taught ethical behavior.

Sportsmanship attitudes and behaviors are learned in a like manner. Therefore, being involved in sport alone is not sufficient to ensure that participants will learn sportsmanlike attitudes and behaviors. Rather it is the "social interactions that are fostered by the sport experience" that will determine the benefit of sport to athletes. 

Achieving that benefit requires that designated leaders within the sport take action to teach ethical and moral behavior in sport.  How sport is structured by the community, administrators, and coaches can determine whether or not children, and parents, learn sportsmanlike behaviors. The emphasis within the sport program becomes the means by which the child learns what is appropriate and/or acceptable behavior.  

The philosophy underlying a program can have an impact on what athletes perceive as appropriate behavior in a sport. An overemphasis on winning in a sport may also cloud perceptions of moral behavior. Overemphasis on winning in sport can also lead individuals (athletes, coaches, and parents alike) to engage in antisocial or delinquent behaviors aimed at trying to gain an advantage to win. 

For example, running the score up in a game where an opponent is clearly inferior manifests ridicule in the players and coaching staff, and moreover, prompts unnecessary cheering from parents in the crowd, that can, at times, lead to both acts of ignorance and aggression amongst opposing team parties. 

Teaching and modeling appropriate behaviors can enhance sportsmanlike behaviors. The instructors/coaches should expose moral values to players and parents as they arise in play and coach children to appropriate resolutions of the issues.  The key to improving the quality of sport experiences for young athletes is to emphasize the totality of the sport experience rather than just playing the game.  This concept means structuring a program philosophy for sportsmanship, being prepared to teach moral reasoning when situations occur, and monitoring your own behavioral (verbal and nonverbal) responses to situations.

Programs can create a climate that fosters the development of sportsmanship by establishing a positive philosophy, striving for excellence, teaching moral principles, and providing positive role models. 

Children are the hardest to convince and fester moral values in, but this is not an impossible task.  If, for example, a 5 year does not refrain from scoring goals versus an inferior opponent even after having been told to do so on more than one a punishment delegated by mom or dad at home, an equal punishment must be delegated in sport (like the missing of a shift or benching in severe situations). 

The morality of the children on the other side of the sport is equally as important as the lesson taught to your players. Sport provides many opportunities to teach sportsmanship; however, the result clearly depends on how coaches, parents, administrators, and practitioners structure sport experiences. By emphasizing sportsmanlike ideals in sports programs, coaches can create a climate that fosters the development of sportsmanship while also striving for excellence within themselves, players and parents alike.
