USA Hockey and the Coaching Education Program require both certification and registration to be eligible to coach. Registration is done online on a yearly basis. Certification is also required. A few basic steps requirements are as follows:
USA Hockey Requirements (Must be completed before participating in any team activities)
Coaching Education Program Requirements (Must be completed by Dec. 31)
The Coaching Education Program is working on a new clinic registration tool that will debut the summer of 2017. Level 1, 2, 3 clinics cannot be posted until that site is active. Most instructors will not post clinics until August at the earliest.
Any August clinic listed will be locked and is for informational/planning purposes only.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
All coaches begin by attending a Level 1 clinic and then progress through the levels year by year.
If your certification is expired, please read the Expired Certification FAQ on the right side of this page.
If you need to transfer or apply for a refund for an upcoming clinic, please read the Refund/Transfer policy on the right side of this page.
