2013 Team Management Handbook: http://www.ndml.ca/files/2013_team_management_handbook.pdf
The Minimum Standards for Box Lacrosse Coaches are defined by Canadian Lacrosse Association (see CLA Form 100b here).
There are 3 coaching levels that apply to minor lacrosse:
Community Initiation (http://www.lacrosse.ca/default.aspx?cid=255&lang=1).
Community Development/Level 1 (http://www.lacrosse.ca/default.aspx?cid=256&lang=1).
Competitive Introduction/Level 2 ( http://www.lacrosse.ca/default.aspx?cid=264&lang=1). This level is only needed for the Head Coach at Bantam and Midget.
More information on the Coaching Development Program is on the CLA website (http://www.lacrosse.ca/default.aspx?cid=290&lang=1).
The following is a summary of the requirements for each division:
Assistant Coach – Community Initiation
Head Coach – Community Initiation
Novice and PeeWee
Assistant Coach – Community Development/Level 1
Head Coach – Community Development/Level 1

Within the levels, there are several stages:
“In-Training” indicates the coach has attended a clinic.
“Trained” indicates a coach has attended the clinic and has successfully completed the evaluation workbook.
“Certified” indicates a coach has attended the clinic, successfully completed the evaluation workbook and all external evaluations associated with the coaching stream in question.
Coaches in their first year can be “In Training”. A coach in second year must be “Trained”.
