Use this link to Register with USA Hockey and start the process:
Complete the online coaching application linked below.
This must be complete before a coach is allowed to be rostered and step on the ice. Please forward the confirmation e-mail from MN Hockey to Kevin Suoja firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to MYHA Attn: Kevin Suoja PO Box 604 Willernie, MN 55090
All Coaches must have a current CEP status. If your CEP is expired or is expiring this year, you must register for and attend a CEP session by Dec. 31, 2018.
CEP Levels and Skater Age Levels are no longer linked. All coaches must enter USA Hockey's CEP Program at Level 1 and must continue their education with a coaching clinic every year until they reach Level 3. Level 3 certification is good for 2 years. If a coach has an expiring Level 3 certification, he or she may take an online recertification track 1, which is also good for 2 years. When a coach's Level 3 Track 1 expires, he or she may take the online Level 2 recertification (which is also good for 2 years) or move on to Level 4. Level 4 CEP Certifications are offered in March, and do not expire.
Exception: Mite/U6/U8 coaches only need a Level 1 certification even if it has expired.
Multiple sessions in Oct and Nov are listed for various coaching levels. Please ensure you know which level you need to attend and sign up now to avoid longer drives for sessions.
MODULES MUST BE DONE BEFORE YOU CAN STEP ON THE ICE. Modules must be completed before the season starts.
You are required to complete a separate module for each age level (Mite/U8, Squirt/U10, PeeWee/U12, etc.) you plan to coach.
These modules are approximately 5-6 hrs in length and you can pause or exit and resume in the spot you left off at.
MYHA must and will take a hard stance on ceritification and age specific module completion for coaches going forward. We cannot accept the risk exposure of not being under the USA Hokcey umbrella for insurance purposes. Thanks for your understanding, patience, and time to complete these sessions.
SafeSport Training must be completed before you step on the ice and is valid for two seasons. If you completed last season, you do NOT need to complete this season.

MN Law requires that all coaches must complete concussion training every other year before the season begins. Here is a link to a free course:
a) Go to “click course”
b) Scroll to “Concussion in Sports”
c) Sign in and register for the course (even though you need to login and register this course is free)
d) Take the course
e) After passing the course a pdf certificate will be sent to you
f) Save a copy of your certificate and then email a copy of the certificate to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have completed any other concussion training course for another sport within this calendar year, that will satisfy the requirement. You just have to email that completion certificate to email@example.com
Also, if you have completed an Online Age Module for any level this year, that will satisfy the concussion training requirement.
Please fill out the Coach Concussion Certificate and email to Kevin Suoja, firstname.lastname@example.org. This must be completed and submitted before the season begins.
