Welcome to the Welland Tigers Athletic Trainer’s Table!

A message from your Head Trainer:

Thank you for volunteering your time to help keep our children, your teammates and bench staff safe! We acknowledge and appreciate all of the time and effort that goes into this type of work. Your responsibility as a trainer is to keep safety at the forefront during all hockey related activities. This is a leadership role that not only supports the health and safety of our players but promotes it both on and off the ice.
We are here to support you in any way possible and to ensure you have what you need to look after the safety and well-being of your team! Please reach out to us and use us as a resource to help support you in day to day operations and your development as a trainer. This website was built to ensure you have easy access to WMHA, Hockey Canada and any other resources you may need. We hope that this site will be a good starting point for any information or fillable forms you will need throughout the season. Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for our new “Trainers Bench”, this is your section of our website!

Let’s have a safe and fun season, Go Tigers!
