CCYHA Coaching Requirements

CCYHA Coaching Requirements


This section is a quick reference guide for the CEP classes, safesport training, and the background check process. All links are live and you may begin the process to complete certifications for the 2020/21 season.

All coaches are required to have a valid 2020/21 USA Hockey registration number, Safesport and the Background check. The background check may be valid for you depending on when you took it. For example my background check from last year is still valid but I have to redo safesport.

The CEP classes are required for any coach that coaches games, including U8 jamborees. I highly encourage house and LTP coaches to go through the CEP class also since it is going to be remotely instructed.

CEP classes may be registered by anyone in any region. The Southeast region has not setup any classes but you can take any of them from around the country.

Let me know if you have any questions. I’m here to help navigate the certification process.
