Become a Coach

Updated Wednesday August 31, 2016 by Jon Paro, ACE Coordinator.


AYHA is always ready to accept new coaches, and assistant coaches for its house and travel programs. Although some previous hockey experience is preferred, you don't need to be a great skater to be a great coach! 

To be considered for a coaching position, just follow the steps below: 

  1. Get your USA Hockey ID. You must select "Ice Player/Coach"
  2. Complete your background screening. See our Screening Policy.
  3. Register with AYHA. You will be prompted to select the Division and desired coaching role. 

To coach with AYHA, you must meet all Coaching Certification Requirements as per USA Hockey regulations and must keep your credentials up to date.
