Travel Hockey Coaches: CEP #3 *Must Read*

Coaches,

As we begin our new season, it is necessary to ensure that everyone has completed his USAH coaching requirements for the 2021-22 season.  Due to the new USAH policies and rostering requirements that were introduced last season by USA Hockey, we need all of our coaches to complete the vast majority of your coaching requirements before Friday, June 25.  

A $250 LATE FEE will be charged to any coach, who does not complete his/her SafeSport, background check and/or online age-specific module (ALL ITEMS THAT ARE HIGHLIGHTED BELOW IN RED) before Friday, June 25

Please see the chart below to review your individual requirements that must be completed. 

Anything outlined in RED indicates that you have online requirements and/or clinics that you must be completed before Friday, June 25

Anything outlined in YELLOW indicates that you have online requirements and/or clinics that you must be completed before 12/31/2021

***The good news is that fifty percent of you have less than 30 minutes of work to complete in order to become certified for the 2021-22 season.***

Before the system allows your name to be added to your respective 2021-22 roster/(s), you must have the following three (3) items completed:

1)  Every coach needs to complete SafeSport training as it is now an annual requirement.  This needs to be completed by Friday, June 25

-If you are a new coach, the new course takes 1.5-2 hours to complete and it is a much improved experience.  Please go to www.usahockey.com and click on the Coaches  tab at the top of the page. Then, click on Training Materials and then the SafeSport Training within that tab.  -If you coached last season, your SafeSport refresher training only takes 30 minutes to complete. 

*Make sure that you save a copy of your Sate Sport completion certificate!* 

2)  Every two years, USA Hockey completes background checks on all coaches, who are actively involved in youth hockey. If your name is on the list above, you will need to complete a background check for the Winter Club before Friday, June 25You will be charged thirty dollars ($30) to submit this background check; please pay this amount as this is a new USAH policy.   


Also, please make sure that you use the same name that you used to get your new USA Hockey number while completing the screening information*


Please go to the following link to complete this process, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete:  https://www.usahockey.com/backgroundscreen
*If this link does not work, please go to www.usahockey.com.  Then, go to Membership tab on the top of the homepage.  Then, click on: Background Screen


3) If you need to complete an Age-Specific Module (Mites (8U), Squirts (10U), Peewees (12U), Bantams (14U) and Midgets (16U)), we need this completed by Friday, June 25.  As a reminder, these courses take 5-6 hours to complete.Please go to www.usahockey.com and click on the Coaches tab at the top of the page. Then, click on Coaching Certification and then the Age-Specific Module within that tab.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, if required, please schedule Clinic training (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 or Level 4) upon your earliest convenience.  The local CT classes will most likely not be posted until August, so we suggest that you schedule them via ZOOM or New York or New Jersey if you want to get this requirement completed sooner than later.  August and September are the ideal months to complete your required USA Hockey classroom training.  Go to www.usahockey.com and click on the Coaches tab at the top of the page. Then, click on Coaching Certification and then the Coaching Clinics within that tab.

-Midget coaches need to complete all clinics and online modules before October 31, 2021.  The deadline for completion for all other coaches is December 31, 2021.     


If you have any questions or notice any discrepancies, please email Boyd at .  Additionally, please email Boyd when you are complete with all of your requirements that are due before Friday, June 25.
