Important Information to know for the 2020-21 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 2003 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 2019-20 season you do not need to complete the background screening again this season. There is a $30 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.
All coaches begin by attending a Level 1 clinic and then progress through the levels year by year.

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.
