Coaching Education Program
Information for the 2013-2014 Season
June 30th, 2013
For any volunteers interested in coaching in either the upcoming 2013 Fall/Winter season OR next year's 2014 Spring season (this includes RHA house league teams), new coaches must receive at least a Level 1 USA Hockey Certification and complete the USA Hockey on-line age-specific module for the level coached (i.e. Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam and/or Midget). Both clinic attendance and the on-line module must be completed by December 31, 2013.
For coaches that already have a USA Hockey Certification, said coaches are required to attend the clinic for the next certification level and complete the age-specific module for the level coached in 2013-14 if not already previously completed. Please note that coaches that do not complete the next certification level by December 31st will thereafter be required to restart at a level one certification. Please also note that whether a new or existing coach, the age-specific modules only need to be completed once for each level and do not need to be repeated each year. Certification clinics are limited and following is registration information provided by USA Hockey.
