2017-2018 Coach Registration

Welcome

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Coach Registration page for the Osseo Maple Grove Hockey Association.

All Potential Coaches for the 2017-2018 Hockey Season

Thank you for volunteering to be a coach with OMGHA.  OMGHA coaches need to go through several steps before they can be added to a team roster.   Please work through all necessary steps below and begin filling out the coach registration online form by pressing the "CONTINUE" button at the bottom of this page:

1. Go to www.USAHockey.com and register as a coach with USA Hockey.  You will be required to pay a $50.00 fee that will be reimbursed to you by OMGHA.  Your USA Hockey registration code is required when you register as a coach within OMGHA.  

2. After you have completed your USA Hockey registration, please register with OMGHA AS A COACH--this is a free registration!   Press the "CONTINUE" button at the bottom of the page to register as a coach with OMGHA.

3. Complete a background check--this is due EVERY OTHER YEAR (if you completed one during the 2017-2018 season you do not need to do one this season).  Click here to complete on Minnsota Hockey website.  

4. IMPORTANT USA HOCKEY RULE CHANGE - All coaches (Head, Assistant, Goalie) must complete their online age-specific module prior to participating with their team.  Coaches also need to be current with their USA Hockey CEP Level certification or have a class scheduled by tryout time to be considered for a coaching position.  Go to www.USAHOCKEY.com to review the guidelines and register for your CEP (by end of year) and age specific module prior to stepping on the ice with your team.   


5.    SAFESPORT – ALL Head and Assistant Coaches, Managers, Locker Room Volunteers and Board Members need to complete the USA Hockey SAFESPORT on-line training to be on ice and rostered or you will be removed as a coach, manager or volunteer for the year.  SAFESPORT registration is free and is good for a two year period.  Please click on the following link to register for SAFESPORT training: http://www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining.

6. OMGHA reimburses coaches for all USA Hockey registration fees as well as CEP and age specific modules.  Please use the form, located on the Coaches' Page, at the link below for all reimbursement requests.
