Rochester Set to Host Level 4 Clinic

By c myers

The Minnesota District of USA Hockey has announced it will host a Level 4 CEP clinic on May 16-17.  The clinic will be held at the Ramada Inn in Rochester, MN.

Level 4 clinics are the highest level of certification most coaches receive through USA Hockey’s Coach Education Program.  Coaches are required to attend a Level 4 clinic after completing their Level 3 Recertification online, but once they achieve a Level 4 certification, they are no longer required to attend coaching clinics.

Coaches who are required to or interested in attending are encouraged to register soon in order to save their spot.  Only two Level 4 clinics are held in Minnesota each season, and there are a limited number of seats available.

All coaches have an obligation to be familiar with USA Hockey’s Coaching Ethics Code. Lack of awareness or misunderstanding of an ethical standard is not itself a defense to a charge of unethical conduct. The USA Hockey Coaching Ethics Code can be found online at
