If you are thinking about coaching, or planning to coach in the 2020-2021 season, you will need to ensure you have the appropriate training.
The temporary card option noted below needs to be registered by July 31st. Please ensure your appropriate level of certification is completed online or apply for the temporary option ASAP. THIS TEMPORARY CARD IS ONLY FOR THE CEP PART OF YOUR CERTIFICATION, you will still need safe sport, screening and age modules and once it opens EHA coach registration.
We realize several coaches need to move to a level 4 which probably won’t be available this year. If you are in that category, you will definitely need to obtain a temporary card.

June 29, 2020
On behalf of USA Hockey, we hope that your family is healthy and safe! As states begin to open, we look forward to the day we are all back on the ice!
With the current situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken a hard look at how we will be delivering USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program, realizing the possibility that in person clinics this season may be different based upon social gathering criteria set by each state.
That being said, we are excited to be moving forward with online virtual clinics starting immediately. We will begin posting these clinics this week!
You can register for a virtual clinic just like you have done in the past at: usahockey.com/coachingclinics
As stated above our goal is to have in-person clinics as soon as they are allowed and safe for all participants.
We understand that these are very different, challenging and uncertain times for everyone. So this season, we will offer a Temporary Card for all coaches that may feel this is the best option for them during this pandemic. The Temporary Card will allow each coach to have the proper level of certification for the 2020-21 season without attending a clinic. This option will be offered through July 31, 2020.
Please click here to register for the Temporary Card online or download the form that you will need to complete and submit to the USA Hockey national office. Additionally, if you do opt for the Temporary Card, you will be able to sit in on any USA Hockey coaching clinic/webinar this season if your circumstances change for no additional charge.
This is a great time to get the following accomplished before the season begins:
· Register with USA Hockey: membership.usahockey.com
· Complete the required background screening: usahockey.com/backgroundscreen
· Complete the required SafeSport training: usahockey.com/safesporttraining
· Complete the appropriate Age-Specific Training Module (if necessary) for the level of play that you are coaching usahockey.com/agespecificmodules
We appreciate all that you do for hockey and the players you coach! Stay healthy and safe. We will all get through this together.
Yours in hockey,
