AHAI has announced the Coaching Education Program Clinics for the 2017-18 season.
All ice hockey coaches as well as instructors of USA Hockey programs shall be registered for the current season (before the start of the season) in order to be eligible to coach/instruct in any regular-season activities (practices, clinics, games, tournaments, try- outs, etc.), state, district, regional playoff, national championships or in the USA Hockey Player Development Programs.
The goal of our program is to educate the youth hockey community on concussion awareness, prevention and treatment as well as to provide FREE baseline neurocognitive testing to AHAI members.
AHAI and IHOA representatives just returned from the USA Hockey Annual Meeting in Colorado this past weekend. This year was a rule change year at USA Hockey so I am writing this note to let you know about the rule changes adopted by the USA Hockey Board of Directors.
As a backdrop to all of these changes, you must remember that USA Hockey, AHAI and IHOA are committed to providing a safe and fair environment for all participants. There are quite a number of changes applicable to playing rules and equipment so let’s get started.
The following rules will be applicable starting with the 2017-2018 playing season and will continue for the next four (4) years until the next time rule changes are permitted. I will highlight the major changes to the playing rules in this article and will issue a separate article for rules which were amended as a result of “language clarification”. A summary of the changes to the playing rules is HERE
