Coaching Checklist:


The following are the five steps that a coach needs to take in order to be coach in USA Hockey:


  1. Register as a coach with USA Hockey for the 2019-20 season.  A coach only has to register once. If a coach is registered as an Adult hockey player, he/she does not have to register a second time. Registration is done at
  2. Do the appropriate background screening. This is good for two years and this can be done at
  3. Register and attend a coaching clinic (If it is required). Level 3  re-certification is good for two seasons and Level 4 is good for life
  4. Complete the Online Module (If it is required). Online modules are already up and running online.
  5. Take the Safesport training. All coaches have to take Safesport training which is done online. There is no charge but your USA Hockey membership number is needed to register and is also your ID for having completed the course. Registration is at
