BAHA Coaching Information

2018-2019 Coaching Registration and Requirements scheduling is upon us!  Coaches are among the most important part of BAHA, and without them leading the teams, developing players individually and shaping the culture wouldn't be possible.  

To review the coaching assignment process, for the travel teams (10U, 12U & 14U) head coaches & assistant coaches are assigned after try outs.  The rosters and interested coaches are reviewed so we can best pair coaches with teams. For House teams (Initiation, House Mites, Youth 8U) we will look at registration and obviously pair parents with their kids. We will review all coaches interested in leading teams and do our best to pick the best fit for head coach. Help is always needed with the house teams, it usually takes a number of assistant coaches to make the season run smoothly!  

Please note that ALL coaches and On-Ice Volunteers MUST complete steps 1-5 BEFORE stepping on the ice or bench:

1. USA Hockey Registration
2. BAHA Coaching Registration.  Email Alec Smail    at:
3. VASHA Background Check
4. SafeSport Training
5. USA Hockey Age Specific Module
    (6. USA Hockey Coaching Education Program by 12/31/18)


From Alec Smail, BAHA Coaching Director:

To Coaches,

    As hard as it is to believe we are rapidly approaching the next winter hockey season.  As you know we are always looking for help coaching.  We will be sending out a note in the near future of what requirements all coach's must complete to help out on the bench.  Most are done online except for the coaching clinics.  If you need to attend a coaching clinic please see list below and register accordingly on the USA hockey website.  If you have any questions please email our coaching director Alec Smail.  All emails are located on the BAHA website.   Please remember that BAHA will reimburse any money spent to complete the tasks to becoming a coach.  Thanks and looking forward to the help.
