2020-2021 Coaches' Registration

Coaches will need to register with FCHA.  In order to register, you will need to have a USA Hockey number for the 2020-21 season.

USA Hockey number - required every year ($46 + MA fee)


To apply as a coach in the FCHA, you will also need to complete the following:

  • Background Screen - required every other year to authorize a background check (returning coaches - you do not need to do this, $30).
  • Coach's card / CEP Training - required - you may get a temporary card if you need an updated card or CEP this year (almost all returning coaches need an updated card, new coaches all need CEP level 1).
  • USA Hockey Age modules - required for the age group you are coaching, needed if your players changed age groups.
