NO CLINICS WILL BE POSTED AT THIS TIME
by Larry Rocha posted 3/19/2020

USA Hockey has asked all the CEP Instructors to not post clinics for the time being. The Level 4 Clinics will be posted as soon as we get the word that we can post clinics. Please be aware that the "new" Level 4 clinic will be more like the Level 1 - Level 3. It will be a one day clinic for $45 and be good for one year. After that coaches will need to do some kind of continuing education. The continuing education is a work in progress.

EARLY SPECIALIZATION VIDEO

Early Specialization: Great video on early specialization. Do you know any parents like the ones in the video? The hockey parents are about half way through the video but the whole thing is worth a look.

Body Checking Study in Youth Hockey in Canada
by Larry Rocha posted 7/29/2016

Study of the Body Checking in Youth Hockey in Canada helps support USA Hockey's change in the age group (14U) when Body Checking is allowed.  It is the coaches responsibility at the 12U age group to teach body checking (both giving and receiving) so the players are prepared at the 14U level.
