CEP Age Specific Modules

The new CEP requirements passed by USA Hockey's Board of Directors in June 2010 require all coaches complete a module for each age level of play they are coaching. Coaches 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 and a USA Hockey membership confirmation number is required in order to register for the modules. 

Each week in September will feature the launch of a new age level module, beginning with the 8 & Under Module on September 6th. The full schedule is as follows:
      September 6: 8 & Under (Mites)
      September 13: 10 & Under (Squirts)
      September 20: 12 & Under (Peewees)
      September 27: 14 & Under (Bantams), and 16/18/19 & Under (Midgets) 

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 goal tending 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 31 of the current playing season. Once you register you have 30 days in which to complete the module. All modules started after December 1 still must be completed by December 31.
