Coaches, please see the below USA Hockey coaches and helmets rule:

ALL ice hockey coaches and instructors of USA Hockey programs for youth 18 and under, high school and girls/women 19 and under MUST wear a HECC approved helmet during all on-ice sessions.  This includes practices, camps, workshops, controlled scrimmages as well as coaching clinics and seminars.

We are a USA Hockey program and are under the local direction of CHC, whose president, Mike Meakem, and coaching coordinator, Mike Powers, request that this information be reiterated to all coaches in each member program.  CHC conducts spot checks and acts upon complaints of non-compliance, with progressive penalties to both individual offenders and their respective programs.

We thank all of our coaches for continuing to obey this rule.
