2021/2022 Coaching Requirements

First and foremost we'd like to extend a huge thank you for donating your time and energy to our OYHA players this season.  Youth hockey, and youth sports in general, could not be successful without volunteers like you!

To coach, and be on the ice with skaters, you are required to complete the following steps:

  • Register with USA Hockey
  • Register with Orono Youth Hockey
  • Complete the Online USA Hockey Background/Screening Check
  • Complete Safesport Training
  • Complete Required Online Age Specific Module Training
  • Complete Concussion Training
  • Complete USA Hockey CEP Training Clinic

Mandatory helmets for on ice coaches.

Per Minnesota Hockey, you will NOT be allowed on the ice prior to having all forms completed. Minnesota Hockey has made two changes that necessitate getting the attached forms in process as soon as possible.

Prospective coaches will not be allowed to have any contact with players until the screening process has been completed.  Please get these completed and submitted as quickly as you can if you are interested in coaching.

Additional detail on each step can be found on the OYHA Website under the Coaches Section.  

If you have specific questions please reach out to OYHA Ace Coordinator.

Thanks for all that you do!
