The 2018-19 USA Hockey Coaching guidelines have been published. All coaches must adhere to the new guidelines in order to be on the bench with your respected Association teams. Attached are the documents sent out by USA Hockey that the coaches are responsible to understand for this season.

If you have any questions please contact NHAHA Coaching Director  Bobby Rodrigue.

All USA Hockey ice hockey coaches (head and assistant) and instructors must abide by the USA Hockey Coaching Ethics Code, and understand that violations may result in full or partial forfeiture of coaching privileges in programs, at sites or events under USA Hockey’s governance.

All coaches have an obligation to be familiar with USA Hockey’s Coaching Ethics Code. Lack of awareness or misunderstanding of an ethical standard is not itself a defense to a charge of unethical conduct. The USA Hockey Coaching Ethics Code can be found online at USA Hockey Website in the Coaches section. Click Here
