Youth Coaching Requirements

This page houses everything our hockey coaches need to know, and obtain, prior to coaching with The Rinks & Great Park Ice and FivePoint Arena. Each requirement is critical for the safety and compliance of both coaches and players, governed by both our organization and USA Hockey.  The standards represented by each of the requirements reflect our strong commitment to the mission and values of our youth hockey programs and helps ensure the most positive and fun experience for all participants. We thank all prospective and current coaches and volunteers for their understanding and service to youth hockey in Southern California!
