The most up to date list of USA Hockey Coaching Clinics in Michigan can be found in the Coaches section of the USA Hockey web site at the following address:

Everyone in the Coaching Education Program is a volunteer like many of you. Our instructors have some leeway to schedule clinics around family and work. They are not obligated to offer clinics at any specific time or place.  Having said that, we will still offer you over 60 clinics state-wide this season, with nearly 30 in the metro Detroit area alone.  You should plan ahead to ensure that you are able to attend the most convenient location and time for yourself.   COACHING CLINICS WILL END IN MID-DECEMBER.  IF YOU CAN'T PLAN AHEAD, YOU WILL NEED TO PAY FOR A USA HOCKEY TEMPORARY CARD TO COMPLETE THE HOCKEY SEASON.

Renewal Information (Levels 1-3)

Coaches who have Level 1, 2, and 3 coaching cards must stay "current" by making sure the sticker on their card does not expire during the season.   This renewal process is simple:

If you have a Level 1 card, you must move to Level 2 before your Level 1 sticker expires.

If you have a Level 2 card, you must move to Level 3 before your Level 2 sticker expires.

If you have a Level 3 card, you must:

  • Move to Level 4 which does not expire OR
  • Take another Level 3 clinic to get a newer sticker OR
  • Take a Level 3 Renewal Workshop to get a newer sticker OR
  • Take the On-Line Level 3 Renewal Course (from the USA Hockey/Flexxcoach system)

All Level 1-3 stickers since 2005 contain an expiration date.  Check your stickers to see if your card expires this coming season.  The USA Hockey Coach Certification List (found in the COACHES section of the web site) also gives expiration dates for Level 1-3 coaches.

Note that effective in 2011-2012, expirations and requirements to move to the next level will change.  Information on this is in the USA Hockey and MAHA Annual Guide books.
