All WHK coaches must be up to date on their Age-specifc before being added to the official USA Hockey roster. If you are not properly certified you will not be allowed on the bench after Dec 31. Please see the details below for information:
USA Hockey Certification Rules:
USA hockey registration - should be done now - coaches have until end of August or first Midget game
Age Specific Modules - Specific requirements must be done before participating in any team activities and a coach cannot be added to a roster until this is completed. They are currently open:
After the transition date, the “refresher” training program will not be available. So, if you are eligible to take the shorter SafeSport Refresher training (which is approximately 35 minutes long), you should complete that training BEFORE September 18th, after which your training will be valid for another two seasons.
After the transition date, the new training will have a different format and content. Anyone needing to complete SafeSport Training after the transition date will need to complete the full course, which will be approximately 90 minutes long. Once completed, the new SafeSport Training will be good for two seasons and members will then again be eligible for the new refresher module.
