Step Six - Complete an Age Specific Module for Each Age Level You Plan to Coach

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.
