Beginning with the 2011-12 season, USA Hockey instituted what they call ‘On Line Age Specific Training Modules’. As the name implies, these classes are delivered on line. There is one class for each age division: 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, and 16/18U. Every head and or assistant coach in the United States is required to complete this training by December 31or they have to come off the team roster.
