USA Hockey CEP certification
Topic: August 13, 2021, 02:01:55 PM
Do any other Youth Hockey coaches/volunteers find it crazy that USA Hockey now requires yearly CEP certification, but has almost no available courses(2 courses each for Level #1 & 2 and 1 each for Levels 3 & 4) to take in early August for the entire country? Almost none of them are virtual either, so good luck if you live in another part of the country from where the in person ones are being held.

Coaching Clinics

They should be thoroughly embarrassed. It's bad enough that they make everyone pay the ~$50 to waste 7 hours of their life(plus travel time) getting maybe 30-45 minutes of useful information. However if they are going to have such a blatant regularly disorganized cash grab, please have the courses available to get shaken down for!

There are currently 47 available courses.  Most/many are virtual.  Crazy that USAH wants their coaches to actually know what they are doing.

Maybe you are clicking a different link than the one in the original post, but I see 6 courses available for coaching(not 47) with seats available.

As for the part about "USA Hockey wanting their coaches to know what they are doing comment"; I have been to 3 separate CEP training courses and not one of them has had a posted meeting agenda. For large chunks of it they turn it back on the audience for topics to discuss. Have also heard instructors say things to the effect of "let's try and keep questions to a minimum, so that we can get out of here on time". Does that sound like the primary concern is "making sure that their coaches know what they are doing"?


Am also not saying that I haven't gotten anything out of these courses, the safety and concussion protocols for instance have been very helpful and important for me. I am simply saying that they do not provide nearly enough useful content to tie up an entire day of someone's (most of whom are volunteering for their organizations) life, and that if they are going to make this an every year requirement, they should have more than 6 courses available in mid-August.
