USA Hockey Coaching Certification
by [WYH] JR - James Raulinaitis posted 7/20/2022

Hello WYH Coaches,

Friendly reminder and update for any newly added coaches.

Please take a look at the USA Hockey Coaching Certification requirements for this season. https://www.usahockey.com/coachingcertification

  • Register as a coach at USA Hockey and enter your USA Hockey confirmation number into your WYH profile. (Click here for details)
  • Complete the background screening
  • Complete the USA Hockey Safe Sport Training
  • Complete the online age-specific module(s) for the age level of play you are coaching
  • On or after September 1st: Find, register and attend the required certification clinic (Coaching Education Program / CEP) before Dec. 31st
    • You must complete the next level each year (Level 1 this year, Level 2 next year) unless you are coaching U8 you can stay at Level 1. 
    • For Level 4 and 5 please read the details on USA Hockey's site about credit hours and the "January 2021 grandfather clause".

If you did the background screening last year you should be all set for this season. Most everyone will need to do SafeSport. If you're coaching a new age group this season, you'll need to take the ASM online training course.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

JR
