It is an exciting time to be a part of USA Hockey's Coaching Education Program. Throughout the month of September we will launch our new online age-specific modules. These modules represent a revolutionary approach to help you become the best hockey coach possible. We are providing you with information specific to the age level of play you are coaching so you can reach your players where they are in their developmental process.
Each week in September will feature the launch of a new age level module, beginning with the 8 & Under Module on September 6th
. The full schedule is as follows:
: 8 & Under (Mites)
: 10 & Under (Squirts)
: 12 & Under (Peewees)
: 14 & Under (Bantams), and 16/18/19 & Under (Midgets)
The modules feature presentations from USA Hockey and current and former National Team Development staff members, NHL and collegiate coaches, and subject-specific experts, i.e., nutritionists, psychologist, etc. Each age level consists of topics ranging from specific skill development (skating, passing, shooting, body contact, etc.) to goaltending to nutrition and sleep needs of players. All subjects and concepts will be conveyed using video presentations, drill examples, white board graphics, animation, etc.
Modules must be completed before December 31st
of the current playing season. Once you register you have 30 days in which to complete the module. All modules started after December 1st
still must be completed by December 31st
The new CEP requirements passed by USA Hockey's Board of Directors back in June 2010 require you to complete a module for each age level of play you are coaching. You can complete more than one module per season but can only be registered for one module at a time. The cost for each module is $10. You will also need your USA Hockey membership confirmation number in order to register for the modules.
