PACIFIC NORTHWEST AMATEUR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION
For the 2020-20201 season, there have been questions on whether USA Hockey will sanction tournaments for your association. Currently, the national office, Pacific district and PNAHA are requesting each association to follow WA state, local and CDC guidelines for hosting such an event. What this means: you as the host of a USA Hockey sanctioned tournament, are responsible for ensuring your association and facility comply with the guidelines the CDC, WA state and your local health authority have mandated for such an event. USA Hockey, Pacific District and PNAHA are not responsible for ensuring your program is in compliance of said guidelines. We recommend you engage your local health authority for their guidance on requirements for hosting a tournament.
The submitting of tournament paperwork will remain the same this season. Please reach out to Jeremy if you have any questions and further information on applying to host a tournament.

Pacific District Coaches,
USAH and Pacific District to offer Online Options for Coaching Education
As hockey begins its return to facilities throughout our District, USA Hockey and the District has been evaluating options for Coaching Education. While evaluating the issues surrounding CEP Certification in current COVID environment, the following was considered:
In response to such considerations, the Coaching Education Program will be offering Online options for the traditional in-person class requirements (Level 1, 2, 3, and 4). The age specific module(s) requirement will remain in place and unchanged.
All of these classes will be conducted with Zoom and will take place in three, two and a one-half hour sessions, for a total of about six hours of classroom time (consistent with in-person class standards). Note, there is a one day break between each of the class sessions. Coaches will be able to register for these classes using the current Coaches’ Course system that they have always used to register for CEP classes.
Registration for these classes is open now. Each of these classes will be limited to 50 coaches. Register at https://www.usahockey.com/coachingclinics
The overall plan for the COVID response will be multi-pronged in order to support the approximately 1,700 coaches in our District and include:

Note 2017-18 problem with system recognizing you need to complete your Refresher Course. The Safesport Program is hosted by the United States Olympic Committee and only uploads completed files to USA Hockey. It does not recognize that you need a Safesport Refresher Course. To complete the Refresher, log into https://training.teamusa.org/accounts/signin. Go to the store at the top of the page and find the Safesport Refresher Course and add it to your bag. Checkout and activate. Note that when the course is complete it can 48 hours to upload to the USA hockey database.
Coaching Clinics will be posted as soon as they are available. Coaches need to have Safesport and their age specific modules completed. They will need to have USA Hockey’s Mobile Coaching App downloaded also.
