USA Hockey has updated a few of their coaching rules for the 2023-2024 season. Please make note of the following changes when preparing for the upcoming coaching season!
Important note for all coaches!!
The level 3 recertification is no longer available, or offered. Those that would have been eligible will need to get their level 4 for this season if their level 3 expires on December 31, 2023. The level 4 classes available right now are out of state; however, it looks like 99% of them are virtual, so anyone should be able to register for out of state classes.
We do not know when the level 4 classes will be available in Minnesota at this time.
Below is the link for the updated coaching requirements for the coaching education program starting with this season.
Please open the following documents.
It is a step-by-step in what needs to be done to get coaching certified. Please click below.
