Level 3 Recertification

Level 3 Recertification--End of Year Note

Coaches must complete the Level 3 Recertification by December 31 in order to count for the 2018-19 season.

Any courses completed January 1 or later will be held until after May 1 for the following season. Once you register for the 2019-20 season, your certification will update for that season. 


Level 3 Recertification is administered by flexxCOACH through its website and requires a separate flexxCOACH login (also available on its site). 

Important Notes to read BEFORE registering:

  1. Coaches MUST be current members of USA Hockey to receive USA Hockey certification credit.
  2. You can recertify your Level 3 certification only twice. Please check the online certification list BEFORE registering for this program. If you have three or more Level 3 certifications listed, you are NOT eligible to complete this program. You will need to attend a Level 4 clinic to update your certification status.
  3. ALL districts require coaches to have current certification prior to January 1 of the current coaching season. The program must be completed by January 1 in order to receive credit for the current season. Programs completed after January 1 will be held until after May 1 for the following season. The certification will be updated automatically after registering for the new season.
