At Liberty Mutual Insurance we believe that a setback presents every athlete with a chance to come back.
And not just to come back…but to come back even stronger than ever before.
Thanks to the shared insight, experience and advice from our world-class athletes and coaches, both you and your young athlete can rest assured knowing that incredible and inspiring comebacks do happen.
In fact, they happen every day. In every sport. At every level.
Often the key to a strong comeback lies in a strong mental attitude and approach. This is a skill that every athlete can learn to practice and hone, starting right now, wherever they are.
Even better, you can help them perfect this vital part of their game.
To help your kid best brush off setbacks and brush up on his or her mental game, download our “Brush Off Mistakes” handout right now.
You and your kids will both enjoy this helpful and easy-to-use handout, which was developed with the help of our partners at Positive Coaching Alliance. It doesn’t take long to learn these skills or put them into play. But the positive results can last a lifetime.

We believe kids can learn valuable life lessons when coaches and parents come together to support winning on and off the field. Join the Responsible Sports movement!

Starting with the upcoming season, USA Hockey is launching a new online curriculum in our Officiating Education Program. In addition to the standard registration requirements, including application, open and closed book testing and attendance at a USA Hockey Officiating Seminar, every official must complete the online material prior to receiving their card and crest for 2014-15.
The online curriculum is designed to enhance educational experience with accurate and consistent officiating information. The online modules will be broken down into three categories. The first two requirements will include general and level-specific presentations. The third category will have elective courses from a variety of topics such as positioning, procedures, penalty criteria and the mental game. These electives will be level-specific and allow you to hone your officiating skills in areas you select.
The length of each presentation will vary depending on content and focus. The majority of the presentations will fall in the 5- to 10-minute range, followed by a short quiz reviewing the content. The entire online curriculum will take 3-5 hours to complete, depending on the level of the official. The in-person seminar each official will be required to attend will be abbreviated and designed to supplement the material presented in the online curriculum.
Instructions on accessing the online seminar will be sent to you upon receiving your USA Hockey application. The curriculum will be accessed through your USAHockey.com profile and can be completed at your leisure, meaning you can log out and log back in to pick up where you left off. Some presentations are designed to be viewed before attending the seminar as a means to improve the overall seminar experience. These will be highlighted for your consideration.
Officials will find this new system to be beneficial and it will make your overall USA Hockey experience a more valuable one. Let’s get the season off to a great start!
