USA Hockey 2020-21 Coaching Education Information
June 29, 2020
Greetings on behalf of everyone involved with USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program. As the weather warms up and more rinks continue to open, we hope that you and your family are enjoying the early days of summer.
As you look for a new sense of normalcy in these uncertain times, everyone involved in the Coaching Education Program is excited by the number of coaches that have embraced the challenges of getting ready for the upcoming season by enrolling in one of our online virtual clinics or signing up for a temporary coaching card.
Based on the clinics we’ve held so far, the interaction between our presenters and coaches from around the country has been incredible. Thank you to all those who have embraced this new technology to share ideas and information to make all of us better coaches and improve the quality of our game. And a special thanks to all the District Coaches-in-Chiefs and their coach developers along with the ADM/CEP staff who have created engaging and educational presentations to help our coaches achieve their next level of certification.
As we continue to expand our curriculum, we will be adding more clinics to offer a wide range of options that work best for your schedule. You can register for a virtual clinic just like you have done in the past at: usahockey.com/coachingclinics
In regards to the temporary coaching cards, which will extend your current certification for the 2020-21 season without having to attend a clinic, we are pleased to announce that we are extending the deadline until July 31, 2020.
We understand that these are uncertain times for everyone. As coaches we teach our players to read and react to different situations that may arise on the ice. This is our chance to practice those same skills as we prepare for what will certainly be one of the most challenging and exciting seasons we have ever experienced. We appreciate all that you do for hockey and the players you coach and hope that you can stay healthy and safe. We will all get through this together.
Yours in hockey,
USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program
