We know that one hockey season seems to begin as soon as the prior one ends, but USA Hockey mandated changes in the 2017-18 season that force an even further acceleration to the process of getting ready for the upcoming season. Because these are USA Hockey mandates that Minnesota Hockey has adopted, there is nothing we can do to provide exceptions.
If you don’t follow these requirements, you will not be eligible to coach and will not get your volunteer hour credits.
Just as important, if you attempt to get on the ice before fulfilling these requirements, you will be in violation of USA Hockey, Minnesota Hockey, District 6 Hockey and CCHA policies and subject to discipline.
Complete the 2018-19 CCHA Coach Application using the link below. Your application will be reviewed by the HDC in conjunction with the Level Commissioner for coach selection after players are placed on teams.
