Coaching Information

For those men and women looking to help parent coach or coach, or those who are looking to renew their level coaching, you will find all information regarding how to become a coach or how to renew here.

You will find a Coaches' Handbook below.  Please review this in its entirety prior to registering as a coach.

Currently we are looking for parent coaches and coaches for the 2020-21 Season.

For requirements for both first time coaches and those renewing their level status, please go to USA Hockey website (www.usahockey.com - look under the coach tab). Or for any further questions, you can email the Program Director at   programdirector@bismarckhockey.com.

Again thank you for your time and talents.
