USA Hockey Brings Levels 1-4 Coaching Clinics to Long Island
The East District NYSAHA Coaching Program is joining the New York Islanders in offering USA Hockey Levels 1-4 Coaching Clinics for coaches in and out of the District, the weekend of Sept. 7-8 at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow and the nearby Long Island Marriott in Uniondale.
More than 300 coaches are expected to attend as the East District kicks off the coaching education season by offering Levels 1-4 Coaching Clinics and a USA Hockey “Bronze” Level Goalie Clinic over the weekend.
Classes offered will include:
Saturday, Sept. 7 CEP Level 1 at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow
Sunday, Sept. 8 CEP Level 2 at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow
Sunday, Sept. 8 CEP Level 3 at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow
Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 7-8 CEP Level 4 at Long Island Marriott in Uniondale
Saturday, Sept. 7 Goaltending Bronze Clinic at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow
The lineup of speakers will feature national USA Hockey staff, in addition to college, prep and pro coaches.
The Level 4 Clinic only comes to the area every few years, so if eligible, this is a great oppotunity to complete your CEP requirement locally. National presenters slated to speak at the Level 4 Clinic include Roger Grillo, Bob Mancini and Rich Hansen, along with Dave Starman, Brant Berglund and Ed Gosek, in addition to a special appearance by past U.S. Olympic and U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Coach Lou Vairo.
Interested in the sport of ice hockey, but are a bit hesitant to step on the ice? The Nassau County Hockey League accepts players of all levels, from the beginner to the more advanced. Our staff of coaches and volunteers all agree on one thing—the common goal of making the sport of ice hockey an enjoyable experience for all involved, from player to parent.
The 2019-2020 NCHL Season is open to players born between 2005 and 2015. Based upon age, players are assigned to one of five age groups:
6U (ages 4-6, birth years 2013-2015)
8U (ages 7-8, birth years 2011-2012)
10U (ages 9-10, birth years 2009-2010)
12U (ages 11-2, birth years 2007-2008)
14U (ages 13-14, birth years 2005-2006)
The Mini-Mite (6U) and Mite (8U) Initiation Programs consist of Skill Development Sessions and cross-ice games. Players at the Mini-Mite and Mite Levels are taught the basic fundamentals of the sport, from basic skating to passing and shooting. The Mini-Mite and Mite Programs are generally held Saturday evenings at our outdoor facility, Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn (weather pending, beginning towards the end of November), and Sunday mornings at Cantiague Park in Hicksville (beginning the first Sunday in October).
The 10U, 12U and 14U levels are played at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, Grant Park in Hewlett, and the Northwell Health Center at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. The players at these levels are evaluated at two sessions before the season begins, where their current skill level is assessed by our staff and coaches. From there, the players are drafted onto teams, given a jersey and will begin a series of team practices and skill development sessions. The Season then progresses into games from the end of November through the end of the regular season at the close of February/early March, culminating in the NCHL Tournament where all teams will qualify for the playoffs and a shot at the Division Championship.
In addition to all the attached information regarding players, the Nassau County Hockey League is always in need of volunteers and coaches. In order to participate as a coach or volunteer, potential candidates must attend and attain their USA Hockey Level I Coaching Certification. This day-long event features experienced speakers and coaches, in addition to on-ice participation, geared toward those who wish to become an active part of the grassroots development of youth hockey. It is not necessary that you have skating ability to become certified as a USA Hockey Coach, simply the desire to be a part of the betterment of youth hockey in a positive environment that fosters the concepts of teamwork, skill development and sportsmanship. Locally, there will a USA Hockey Level I Coaching Certification Course. Visit USAHockey.com for more information.
