Travel Hockey Managers: *Please Read*

2019-20 Travel Hockey Team Managers,

As we begin our new hockey season, it is necessary that ALL NCWC TEAM MANAGERS register as volunteers for the upcoming season.  Please follow the three (3) steps below. 

  1. Go to www.usahockeyregistration.com and register YOURSELF as an ICE MANAGER/VOLUNTEER with USA Hockey.  Please make sure you register your player(s) by clicking "Ice Managers/Volunteers.”  Each volunteer will receive a code that has nine (9) numbers, two XXs, and the first three (3) letters of your last name in it.  It is suggested that you print out the USA Hockey registration confirmation (complete with number and barcode) for your records.  At a minimum, please write down your USA Hockey confirmation number and keep this information available for completing additional steps in the registration process.  This registration process is FREE for all volunteers.   

  2. Register yourself for General Registration 2019-2020. 

    If you have done so already as part of registration for one of your children's programs at the Winter Club, you can skip this step.

Please follow these following steps:

  • Go to www.ncwinterclub.com

  • Click on Register Online on the left column

  • Click the 2019-2020 General Registration button

  • Log in by entering email address and your password; if you do not remember your password, then just type in your email address and hit submit.  Your password will be automatically sent to your email address.  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERING BY USING THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU SENT TO THE WINTER CLUB WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED THE CLUB.  DO NOT REGISTER USING A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS UNLESS THE WINTER CLUB HAS BEEN NOTIFIED ABOUT YOUR NEW ADDRESS AND HAS IT ON FILE AS YOUR PRIMARY EMAIL ACCOUNT. 

  1.  Register yourself for the TEAM MANAGER program. 

 ***Please note that the system is set up so that you must successfully register for General Registration before you can complete this step***   

 Please follow these steps:

  • Click on Register Online on the left column.

  • Click on: TEAM MANAGERS 

  • Click on your name    

    Enter your USA Hockey registration number at the bottom of the Participant Information page after you have verified that the information is accurate.  The system will not allow you to finalize your registration unless you provide this information.

    If you have any questions or issues, please email the Winter Club’s Registrar at:

Team Managers/Board Members: SafeSport/CHC Background Checks

Winter Club Travel Team Managers & Board Members,


As we begin our new hockey season, it is necessary that ALL TEAM MANAGERS & BOARD MEMBERS complete the following, bulleted steps. 

  • Every two (2) years, USA Hockey completes background checks on all volunteers, who are actively involved in youth hockey in the State of Connecticut. Please go to the following link to complete this process, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete: https://opportunities.averity.com/ConnecticutHC 

 The confirmation number that they ask for is your USA Hockey number that acquired during your registration steps this past week.. 

*If this link does not work, please go to www.chchockey.org.  Then, go to Coach/Volunteer screening tab on the left-hand side of the homepage.  Then, click on: https://opportunities.averity.com/ConnecticutHC

  • THIS IS A NOW AN ANNUAL REQUIREMENT.  All Team Managers will need to complete Safe Sport, which is an online course that is designed to prevent various types of abuse-physical, sexual and mental-within youth sports.  The course takes 1.5 hours to complete.  Please go to www.usahockey.com and click on the Membership tab at the top of the page. Then, click on SafeSport and then the SafeSport Training within that tab.  Once you have completed the training module, you will receive a completion certificate.  It is recommended that you keep a copy of it to ensure that you get credit for taking it.  Goinig forward, you will be required to complete a 30-minutes SafeSport refresher online course to remain current with USA Hockey.       

Please notify Annie Watson (team managers) or Stacey Walker (Board members) when all of these steps are completed.
