"Coaching Helper"

“Coaching Helper” 

1.This has been approved in the New England District for use in Learn-to-Skate/Play programs ONLY.  This is not for use in 8U through 18U teams or for girls teams of any age.

2.The helper MUST register with USA Hockey as a Coach.  Registration as a coach ensures that the individual is properly insured to be on the ice with our participants.

3.They MUST complete a background check through the MEAHA website.

4.They MUST complete their SafeSport module.

5.They MUST ALWAYS have a properly certified coach on the ice with them!

Remember, this program is to assist associations with getting more people to “help” in your LTS programs so that kids are having an enjoyable experience and they return again and again each week! 


 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 SafeSport 

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.
