  • Must attend a training session conducted by the local hockey association.
  • Must always be under the supervision of a carded, screened adult coach during all practices, clinics, try-outs, and in the locker room.
  • May help out at practices, clinics, try-outs only. (May not play during scrimmages or games).
  • Must wear a helmet with full face shield, gloves, and skates while on the ice. Must wear helmet during games while on the bench.
  • May only work with players at least one full playing age level down.
  • The organization that is using the student coach must provide a form indicating on what team he/she is participating as a student coach, and, if applicable, what team he/she is properly registered/rostered as a player. 
  • Upon reaching the age of 18, the student coach must comply with all USA Hockey coaching and screening rules and regulations.
  • May not act as the head coach or assistant coach during practices or games.

Student Coach Policies per USA WWFHA:

  • Coaching assignments are based on need; not all requests by players to student coach for specific teams can be granted.
  • The commitment to be a Student Coach does not take priority over your current team. However, it does take precedence over other extracurricular activities. If you commit to help a team, you are expected to follow through since the Coaching staff and the players will be depending on you.



Congratulations to the 17 Washington Wild players that became certified as USA Hockey Student Coaches for the 2015-16 season!
