Coaches (and Team Staff) - Why do I have to do this Training?

The following was borrowed from a recent Amateur Hockey Association Illinois (AHAI) newsletter:
"USA Hockey and the Coaching Education Program (CEP) require: USA Hockey Registration, Screening, SafeSport Training, Age Specific Module completion and the appropriate Level CEP clinic to be eligible to coach. Why?
The answer is rather simple; the kids deserve it. What do I mean by that? As parents, you turn your children over to their coaches for several hours a week. After parents and teachers, your kids spend more time with coaches than probably anyone else during the season. USA Hockey and AHAI want that experience to be the best and safest it can be. Only properly educated coaches can help in the development of your skaters both on and off the ice. Coaches have a massive responsibility. Most of us remember our coaches; both the good and the bad. The effect they have on players can be immense and with that comes great responsibility.
  • Coaching Education Program (CEP) Online Age-Specific Requirements (Must be completed PRIOR to participating in any team activities and cannot be added to a roster until completed)
  • USA Hockey Requirements: Register as a member of USA Hockey, complete background screening and complete USAH SafeSport Training (Must be completed PRIOR to participating in any team activities and cannot be added to a roster until completed)
