USA HOCKEY – Coaching Certification
USA Hockey will be host a coaching clinic at Niagara University, in the fall, dates to be announced.
These classes are required for anyone wishing to be a head coach or an assistant coach. All coaches must have the required certification level by January 1 of the current season. All coaches must enter USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program at Level 1, and must continue their education each year until, at a minimum, they achieve Level 3. A coach may attend only one certification clinic per year (not including age-specific requirements). Coaches who do not coach in continuous years must re-enter the program at the next level when they resume coaching responsibilities. Once Level 3 is achieved, periodic renewal is required (every 2 years, renew only twice) for coaches who have not achieved Level 4.
In addition to the paragraph above, coaches must also complete age-specific training components specific to the level of play they are coaching, if they have not already taken that component. This requirement applies to all coaches at all levels, 1 through 5. Coaches may complete more than one age-specific component in any given season. If you have any questions please contact Director of Coaching, Marc Catanzaro, 716-417-2868,(firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are required to take the Level 4 certification, you will need to contact Marc prior to registration.
