On August 24th, 2021, the City of San Jose instituted a health and safety urgency ordinance that any City of San Jose-owned facility hosting indoor events with more than 50 attendees requires guests ages 12 or older to show proof of covid-19 vaccination upon entry to the facility. This policy is effective beginning September 20th, 2021. For more details please visit

If you are unsure if you need to do your Background screening, SafeSport or Age Specific Modules, please make sure to complete the Volunteer Coaching Registration. We can run your USA Hockey Membership number through their national registry to check on what needs attention.

It is highly suggested that coaches get either their level 1, 2, or 3 coaching certification through the USA Hockey Coaching Education Program |
