AHA Annual Coaches Meeting
Hello Coaches and Team Managers,
Welcome to the 2019/2020 Season. Andover Hockey Association is very excited to welcome our hockey families back to the rink and begin another great season. Before we begin it is very important that all our Andover Coaches attend this year’s meeting. At this meeting head coaches will receive their yearly puck buckets, practice jerseys and goalie gear. We will cover both new and old rink rules and policies with PA rink manager, Matt Gray, and introduce our new skills vendors. We also have some new changes to our player groupings for practice. I will quickly discuss the details surrounding this at the meetings.
For your convenience we have scheduled two dates for the meeting. All coaches must attend one of these two dates:
Monday, 8/26 @ 6:30pm
Wednesday, 8/28 @ 6:30pm
This meeting is mandatory for all AHA coaches Mites and above. We ask that Head Coaches respond with which date they will be attending so we can better plan equipment hand out.
Any coaches looking for more information on certification or CEP course schedules, I have included the link sent from our Compliance Director, Michael Longo. If you haven’t signed up for your CEP courses yet we recommend you do so as soon as possible, these courses can and often sell out. This is the link to AHA's coaches requirements where you will find all necessary links: https://www.andoverhockey.org/events/usa-hockey-and-aha-requirements-to-coach/501
