The modules feature presentations from USA Hockey and current and former National Team Development staff members, NHL and collegiate coaches, and subject-specific experts, i.e., nutritionists, psychologist, etc. Each age level consists of topics ranging from specific skill development (skating, passing, shooting, body contact, etc.) to goaltending to nutrition and sleep needs of players. All subjects and concepts will be conveyed using video presentations, drill examples, white board graphics, animation, etc.

Modules must be completed before December 31st of the current playing season. Once you register you have 30 days in which to complete the module. All modules started after December 1st still must be completed by December 31st. Please click here to find out more information on the modules and to register.

The new CEP requirements passed by USA Hockey's Board of Directors back in June 2010 require you to complete a module for each age level of play you are coaching. You can complete more than one module per season but can only be registered for one module at a time. The cost for each module is $10. You will also need your USA Hockey membership confirmation number in order to register for the modules. Please click here for information on retrieving that number.
