Coaching certification and modules

By HDC 09/27/2016, 9:15am CDT

Hockey Season  will be here before you know it. If you plan on coaching for PYHA in 2016-2017 please make sure you are current on your certifications and modules. If you are moving up a level you will be required to complete that age module before you will be able to coach. These modules can be accessed on USA Hockey Web Site. In addition to modules, anyone who will be needing to complete a coaching certification clinic, please go to USA Hockey Web Site and start looking at Clinics. These Clinics have limited space and fill up fast. The sooner you can get registered for a Clinic the better. Last but not least, please make sure you are current on your Safe Sport Training. This is good for two seasons and then you are required by USA Hockey to complete a refresher course. Please look into you safe sport completion date and verify if you are due to take safe sport refresher.

Background Screening

Needed every two years, if you did this last year you don't need to do this again this year.

Make sure you click the "Coaches" button on the screening information page.
