The process for selecting the head coach included the evaluation of comprehensive data that considered expressions of interest and written submissions and collectively included quantifiable data such as coaching experience, playing experience, Hockey Canada certifications, and the combination of relevant education, the team's current season evaluation (team ranking), parent feedback survey data (assistant coaches were included), and overall board compliance, et cetera. Only the most qualified candidates from each division were interviewed. If an applicant wasn't a current head coach, team ranking and board compliance were deducted from the total weight. The total weight was also reduced if no parent feedback was provided (and didn’t impact the total ranking).
