ALL coaches must have their background check completed, online age specific courses completed and your safe sport online training completed before you are allowed on the ice.  THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS.  

NEW COACHING RULES AND DEADLINES THIS SEASON

This year USA/MN Hockey has made some adjustments and changes to the rules for anyone that will be on this ice this year.  ALL coaches must have their background check completed, online age specific courses completed and your safe sport online training completed before you are allowed on the ice.  THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS.  You will also need to register for your CEP Level 1, 2, 3, or 4 coaches clinic.  The CEP Clinics must be completed before the end of the year or you will be red listed and not allowed on the ice for the remainder of the year.  

TRAVELING COACHES/POTENTIAL COACHES
The registrar will not be able to add you to the roster until you are fully certified and your CEP level is current and completed.  These means you will not be allowed to be on the bench at tournaments and district games as you will not be listed on the roster.  Please get this completed as soon as possible.  

Pat Westrum is running the following clinics and you can register for them at http://www.usahockey.com/coachingclinics 

  • Sunday October 8th 
  • Saturday November 4th 
  • Sunday December 10th 

The clinic dates listed above are for anyone needing a level 1, 2 or 3 and are in Eden prairie.

MITE COACHES/POTENTIAL MITE COACHES
This year their will be a mite only CEP Level 1 Clinic that will be held in Prior Lake on October 14th.  This is specifically designed for MITE coaches ONLY.  If you are interested in attending please reach out to me with all of your contact information as I need to provide a list of EV coaches that will be attending. 

Every season we are looking for parents that are willing to step up and help coach and be on the ice with their child this season at the mite level.  If you are interested in helping/coaching please reach out to me as soon as possible.  

I can be reached at adwyer06@live.com or by phone at 952-217-6996.

Thank you!
