Coaching Requirements

"To win the game is great. To play the game is greater. To love the game is greatest of all"

USA Hockey’s policies require all coaches, team managers and volunteers to register with USA Hockey, complete SafeSport training and complete a background check.

Coaches are required to have all three completed along with their age-appropriate modules before the start of the season.

Please follow the links below to complete your registrations and training:

Email your USA Hockey Member number to WYH Registar once obtained.


Once steps 1-4 are confirmed complete with the Westwood Youth Hockey Registrar, you will be able to skate! You will have one more step to complete prior to the 12/31 deadline.


Required Coaching Education Certification - CEP

Depending on your level, it may be required each season.

Find, register and attend the required certification clinic. You can only attend one clinic per season and all coaches start at Level 1. The coaching clinic season for Levels 1-3 officially runs from September 1 to December 31.
