Coaching (and Manager) Requirements

All coaches are required to enter the USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program at Level 1, and must continue their education each year until, at a minimum, they achieve Level 3. A coach may attend only one certification clinic per year (not including age-specific requirements). Coaches who do not coach in continuous years must re-enter the program at the next level when they resume coaching responsibilities. Once Level 3 is achieved, periodic renewal is required (every 2 years, renew only twice) for coaches who have not achieved Level 4.
 
Note:  Coaches of a Midget Level tournament bound team must be certified at a Level 4 if he/she is in his/her 4th year of coaching or later.
