Coach Paperwork Needed

Once you have registered to be a coach, there are papers that do need to be turned in to the registration coordinator in order to be rostered on your team.  Without being 100% compliant with these requirements, you are not allowed to be on the bench or ice with your team.

Once you have registered, the following forms need to be turned into the registration coordinator.  They can be turned in together by you to the metal box inside CRIC.  Please staple all of the items below together.

  • USA Hockey confirmation page
  • AGM completion certificate for the level you are coaching (if this applies)
  • Concussion Awareness Certification sheet (from the AGM or HeadsUp that is current from another CR sports program)
  • Coach Concussion Agreement form that  you've completely filled out 

 

STEP 1: REGISTER WITH USA HOCKEY and CRYHA

All coaches must be registered with USA Hockey prior to participating in any USA Hockey activities, including coaches clinics, practices, game, pre-tryout clinics, etc. Registration is $41.00 and can be completed by visiting:

(see side bar for all links!)

STEP 2: COMPLETE SAFESPORT CERTIFICATION

SafeSport certification and training is mandated by USA Hockey and the US Olympic Committee. Prior to participating in team activities, all adults with regular access to players must complete SafeSport. Training is required every year.

STEP 3: PASS A BACKGROUND CHECK

Coaches, volunteers, managers, and Board Members need to complete a Minnesota Hockey mandated background check prior to participating in team activities.

STEP 4. REGISTERING FOR COACHING EDUCATION CLASS

Coaching Education Program (CEP) classes are held throughout the state between September and December. Coaches must take a course until reaching level 3, when they can complete a refresher course every two years (twice maximum).

STEP 5: AGE SPECIFIC MODULES & CONCUSSION TRAINING

USA Hockey mandates coaches complete the age-specific module for the age they are coaching. The age-specific module only needs to be completed once (per age group). Must be completed prior to being added to team roster!

 Minnesota Hockey requires all coaches to complete concussion training prior to being rostered on a team.  The required concussion training form and training information can be found on the Minnesota Hockey website.  

NOTE THAT TRAINING CAN BE COMPLETED THROUGH: • USA Hockey online age modules • The Center for Disease Control: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html. • National Federation of State High School Associations: https://nfhslearn.com/courses/61064/concussion-in-sports • Training provided through other youth sport programs

 Print the concussion forms on the side panel and complete, return to Registration Coordinator.

 


STUDENT COACHES

A student coach is a player between the ages of 13 and 17 properly registered with USA Hockey. They may not act as a head coach or assistant couch during practices or games.  They can be on the bench during games with an adult.  The Student Coach will count as one of the four coaches allowed on the bench.  They must wear a helmet with full face shield, gloves and skates while on the ice and must wear a helmet during games while on the benchSee the complete USA Hockey Student Coach policy HERE

If a student coach will turn 18 during the season, they will also need to complete SafeSport Certification before they can be officially rostered on the team and be on the bench/ice with the team; this is the same as adult coaches.

 

This form must be completed and signed by the parents, the students current coach, and a representative of the Association.
