The cost for backgrounds screens this season is approximately $20 per screen.  This can be reimbursed by AAHA.


COACHING EDUCATION PROGRAM (CEP) REQUIREMENTS

All coaches must enter USA Hockey's CEP at Level 1, and must continue their education each year until, at a minimum, they achieve Level 3. A coach may only attend one certification clinic per year.  All coaches must have the required certification level by December 31st of the current season. 

EXCEPTION FOR MITE COACHES: Mite coaches may remain at a Level 1, even if their CEP has expired for as long as they are coaching Mite 8U or Mite 6U age groups.

Coaches who do not coach in continuous years must re-enter the program at the next level when they resume coaching responsibilities.

Once Level 3 is achieved, periodic renewal is required for coaches who have not achieved Level 4. Coaching certification at Level 3 is valid for two seasons.

All coaches must also complete online age-specific training modules specific to the level of play they are coaching. This must be completed prior to the start of the season.



Reimbursement

Coaches may request reimbursement for background screens and the registration fee for CEP classes.
