Team Staff Registration Instructions

Team Staff Registration Instructions


These instructions apply to all Adult Team Staff and includes Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Locker Room Attendants and On Ice Helpers.


ALWAYS Use Your LEGAL NAME when registering with USA Hockey and WYHA.  This is the name shown on your birth certificate or driver's license.


1.) Create a WYHA CrossBar Account (use the same account to that was used to register your children if you were the registering parent, otherwise you MUST create your own account using your own name and email address):

      a.) Click on the Sign Up Icon in the upper left hand corner
      b.) Enter your email and a password (we recommend you write them down in a secure location) and CLICK on the SIGN UP button

      c.) Follow the instructions to verify your email.

      d.) Type in your Name and phone after clicking on the link in the verification email.

NOTE: The Name you use to set up this account is the Name that will appear on the Team Website when you are added to the Team Website.  If you mis-type it, you can fix it later by logging onto your account, then click on DASHBOARD (top left of website), then click on PROFILE and update the name. Note this is YOUR account so the webmaster can NOT fix it for you.



2.) Register with USA Hockey:
      a.) Go to www.usahockeyregistration.com and follow the instructions

      NOTE: Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and On Ice Helpers must register as a COACH with USA Hockey. Team Managers & Locker Room Attendants will NOT be skating or on ice should register as a MANAGER/VOLUNTEER.

3.) Register with WYHA:
      a.) Go to the PROGRAMS tab at the top of the WYHA website.
      b.) On the drop down menu, click on WYHA COACH AND TEAM STAFF
      c.) Read thru the information on the page, then on the right hand side click on the REGISTER button
      d.) Click on NEW PLAYER or select the person off the page you wish to register (ADULTS only).  If selecting NEW PLAYER, enter the name of the TEAM STAFF member as the player. The parent will be the person doing the registration.  In most cases, adult team staff should be registering themselves and thus will be the player and the parent. If a spouse is registering the team staff member, make sure you enter the team staff member's email as the second parent.
      e.) Complete the registration by entering the USA Hockey Confirmation number, address info and answering the questions on ALL the pages.  Movement from page to page is by the buttons in YELLOW/ORANGE.
