Try Coaching for “Free” for a Year
** A coach that is just starting in the USA Hockey Coaching program can try coaching for “free” for one year.
**This is only for the 6U, 8U and Learn to Skate level.
**The coach must complete:
o Age-Specific Module (8U)
o Have a Background Check
**It is up to the Association to monitor this situation.
**If the coach decides to continue coaching the next year they must follow the Coaching Education Program. That is, take a Level 1 Clinic and whatever Age-Specific Module not completed. The Association must make sure the coach follows the Guidelines listed above.
