Important Information to know for the 2019-20 Hockey Season:
Coaches must be current members of USA Hockey in order to register for the modules.
If you need to take an age-specific module, they are now available year-round. The price is now $10. The mid-winter price of $50, for those who needed to take it after missing the Dec. 31 deadline, has been removed.

USA Hockey provides online training/education that is available to help members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in the sport of hockey. All USA Hockey registered coaches, skills coaches, officials, employees, locker room monitors, travel chaperones, billet families and any off-ice trainers (all adults who are around the players) and volunteers MUST COMPLETE this SafeSport training. Any hockey player born in 2002 or older must also complete SafeSport Training before being added to the roster. The SafeSport Training is FREE when you enter through the NGB Training area on the website - select USA HOCKEY for your membership - and enter your USA Hockey member number.
All coaches, instructors, managers, locker room monitors, travel chaperones, billet families and any off-ice trainers (all adults who are around the players) MUST COMPLETE an Online Background Check with MAHA.
The screening will be good for two years. If you were screened in the 2018-19 season you do not need to complete the background screening again this season. The background screening scans a wide range of databases and is processed very quickly (usually within 1 - 3 days). There is a $12 cost to process your background screening. The fee will be collected through the website when you enter your information. CLICK HERE to start the MAHA Background Screening process.
Find, register and attend the required certification clinic. (Cost is $45 plus any lunch fees if applicable) You can only attend one clinic per season and all coaches start at Level 1. (The coaching clinic season for Levels 1-3 officially runs from September 1 to December 31). Visit USA Hockey's Coaching Rules & requirements page.

Rule Change Alert - EVERYONE on the ice MUST wear a helmet, regardless if they are rostered or not. Failure for not having on a helmet is a mandatory 30-day suspension.
