Explanation on each requirement:

  1. USA Hockey Registration: Annual registration. You will receive an electronic copy of your registration from USA Hockey.
  2. USA Hockey SafeSport Certification: A 90-minute video with tests. This certification is good for 2 seasons (not 2 years).
    1. The SafeSport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for one (1) season beginning on 4/1/19.  Please Note: if you took the training during the 2018-19 season, it is still valid for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.

      As of January 1, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new SafeSport training, which features updated content.

  3. CAHA Background Check: Annual registration with no cost. You need to make sure you select Littleton Youth Hockey Association and the correct level you are coaching. You will need to print a copy of your registration from CAHA. This requirement has nothing to do with your CEP Certification.
  4. Online Concussion Training: Annual certification with no cost. You must have this completed before you can be added to any roster. You will receive a certificate and email confirmation.
  5. These modules are available in August. Must be completed before being eligible to coach.
