ARIZONA AFFILIATE COACHING EDUCATION PROGRAMS

 


                            
USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program, together with the Safety and Protective Equipment Committee, has joined with the American Red Cross to provide additional training for our coaches and other participants.  
Available online through the Indianapolis Chapter of the Red Cross “First Aid for Coaches” was developed by the Red Cross in conjunction with the USOC for use by its member National Governing Bodies. 
To access “First Aid for Coaches” go to www.USAHockey.com and click on “Coaches” from the top menu. The Red Cross link is on your left. There is complete menu of available training and “First Aid for Coaches” is the course that will be most relevant for our members. 
USA Hockey’s CEP recommends all coaches consider obtaining this training, and highly recommends at least one coach from each team be trained.
