All coaches are required to attain the proper CEP Level for the age group they are coaching.  This must be done before December 31st of each year.  Coach's that are found to be in non-compliance with their CEP Certification shall be removed from the team roster and no longer able to participate with On Ice or Bench Activities with the team.

Coaches are allowed to complete as many CEP Levels as is necessary within a single season to gain the proper CEP Certification.  In cases where a coach's current certification is going to expire and they currently have the proper CEP Level, they must take the next Level of Certification.

      Example: Coach is a current level 1 and is coaching mites,
      but their current card expires Dec 31st of the year.  The coach would
      sign up to take a Level 2 to become current.

Level 3 coaches that need to recertify have several options:

  • Move up to Level 4
  • Retake Level 3 
  • Attend a Specialized USA Hockey Clinic/Workshop
  • Participate in USA Hockeys On-Line Recertification Program click here
