2020-2021 Coaching Application

All coaches must complete a new coaching application every season.  This ensures that your contact information and coaching preferences are up to date.

Completing Coaching Requirements

  1. Register as a coach at USA Hockey Membership; Be sure to choose Missouri Hockey as your local affiliate, not Illinois.
  2. Complete a background check at Missouri Hockey Background Check or verify your current status at Missouri Hockey Screening Results; This is currently required every 2 season. If your status is set to expire during the upcoming season, you will need to complete a new check.
  3. Complete SafeSport Training;  After completing the initial training, a refresher course must be taken every season.  You can log into the SafeSport website to take the refresher or obtain a copy of you certificate.  
  4. Schedule and attend a Coaches Education Clinic; The CEP clinics typically occur after the beginning of the season and must be attended prior to December 31st of the current season. 

For 10U and older Level 1, 2, and 3, you are required to maintain certification by taking the next level clinic, or renewing Level 3.  

If you are coaching 8U or 6U, you are technically only required to have Level 1, even if it is past the expiration date, but it is strongly encouraged to attend a higher level clinic so you are a step ahead if and when you move to 10U or older.

Contact or consult the USA Hockey Website if you have additional questions.

  1. Complete the Age Specific Module for the age level you will be coaching; The module only needs to be taken once for each age group you are coaching.  There is no need to repeat the same module.  This must be completed before getting on the ice for practices  of the current season.
