We appreciate your interest in helping Layha be the best and safest hockey association around.
Per USA Hockey Regulations, any person who wishes to Coach OR be On-Ice, must obtain a USA Hockey Number, pass the Background Check, the Coach Safe Sport Training, and be current on all age appropriate Coaching Modules.
IMPORTANT: Layha and USA Hockey does not allow anyone other than Players, Coaches and Officials on-ice. There is no exception.
If you are interested in Off-Ice Volunteering and would like to help in other areas, please refer to the Volunteer Registration.
Layha has the backing of terrific resources to help our kids build positive experiences through hockey. USA Hockey provides the mandatory Safe Sport Training, adopted by the US Olympics and all USA Hockey sanctioned sports. Layha pays for the required Background Check, and Age Appropriate Coaching Modules. Coaches are responsible to stay current. VSAHA provides the Coaching Education Program to guide you through the steps to become a Coach/On-Ice Assistant. Layha reimburses for these modules.
All Coaches/Assistants/Helpers must register for a USA Hockey number every year, Safe Sport and Background Checks are every two years, and Coaching Modules as needed. It is your responsibility to abide by and to stay current.
IMPORTANT: Coaches who do not have or are missing one of these requirements will be Redlined by USA Hockey, and cannot participate with ANY activity until cleared. For transparency, all Rosters will now be posted on the Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association (VSAHA) website.

After you have completed all steps, and have been contacted by our Coaching Director, you will be ready to skate on-ice to help Layha Players have a rewarding and positive hockey experience.
If you have any questions or need additional guidance, please contact Lance Tucker, Coaching Director.
Thank you for your interest!
