All coaches and managers in Port Huron Minor Hockey Association are required to be rostered in accordance with all USA Hockey and MAHA rules and guidelines. The top 4 items are needed before you can roster the team and play in any games. Please allow a week from the time you turn everything in before you will have your roster. The beginning of the season is a very busy time for all of us. You can help with this process by appointing a team manager and gathering all coaches and managers paperwork then getting it to the office early.
All coaches and managers must fill out the approprate paperwork and it must be turned into the office. We ask that the Head Coach and or Manager please collect all paperwork from your teams coaches and managers and turn it into the hockey office. It will be way to confusing to have various coaches and managers dropping off paperwork at different times of the day to roster.

Step 1: USA Hockey Registration
All coaches must first register with USA Hockey to be rostered. Click here to register with USA Hockey. You will need your USA Hockey Number to complete the steps below.
*IMPORTANT, please use the same name each year. For example if you used Robert last year, use Robert this year. Do not use Bob or Rob.
Step 2: MAHA Background Check
All Coaches, Managers, Locker Room Attendant, etc... need to complete a MAHA Background check. They are good for one year and are now a National check. If you completed you background check in 2018-2019 you do not need to do it for the 2019-2020 season. They cost $12 I believe. They are expected to go up since they are now a national check. Click here to complete the background check.
*IMPORTANT, complete this step right away. Doing this in early August will yield a result in a few days. Waiting till September, the peak season, you will be delayed for 7-10 days.
Step 3: Safe Sport Training
All Coaches, Managers, & Locker Room Attendants must receive Safe Sport training. This now must be completed every year however, if you did it for the 2018-19 season you are good for this year. Click here for more info on the SafeSport program as well as a link to register for the program.
Step 4: Age Specific Module
USA Hockey has opened the online age specific modules for the season. These must be done before you can be rostered if you are coaching in a division different than last season. If you are in the same division as last year and you were certified last season you should be good this year. Click here to see what the status of your certification is currently. Click here to visit the website and to begin the module.
Step 5: Coaching Clinic
Each year you are required to take a USA Hockey Coaching Clinic and move up a level. You may stay at your current level even if it’s expired as long as you are coaching U8 or younger. Level 3 is good for 2 years and you can refresh it online up to 2 times and each time that is good for 2 years. After you've exhausted both refresh clinics you must take level 4.
