SYHA Policy - Selection of Coaches

The Director of Coaching, the Vice President of On-Ice Operations, and the appropriate Division Director will constitute a Committee with the responsibility and authority to make all coaching assignments. The decision of this Committee will be final. SYHA's policy is to select the most qualified Head Coach from among all interested candidates, regardless of whether a candidate is the parent of a child participating in the program. In all situations the candidate Head Coach will possess coaching qualifications consistent with the level of skill and competition of the players to be coached. Coaches are required to attend the pre-season coaches meeting for the level they expect to coach. Other key factors are the ability to relate well to players of that age level, the ability to communicate effectively with parents, the ability to exercise fair and independent judgment and the ability to support SYHA policies and procedures. Coaching assignments will be reviewed annually.

All coaches must be SafeSport Certified and be Coach/Volunteer Screened with the CHC prior to participating in any SYHA activities.

All coaches above the Mite House Division will hold the appropriate level USA Hockey Coaching Achievement Certification consistent with USA Hockey. USAH certification must be completed by January 1st.  Coaches not USA Hockey certified at the appropriate level after January 1st will be removed by the Board, as per USA Hockey guidelines, and will not be permitted to participate in on-ice or game-coaching activities. 

For more information on Coach CEP requirements, please refer to "Coaches Corner" on our website, or contact Keith Maurice, Director of Coaching.

Thank you for volunteering!
