Current CEP level/number:
What is your coaching philosophy, what is your goal as coach?
Working with PSM off-ice is mandatory.  Are there any issues with that?
For non-goalies, working with Ron Leef (Gotta Getta Goal) is mandatory.  Are there any issues with that?
How important is winning (5 very important – 1 not at all important)?
How important is athlete development (5 very important – 1 not at all important)?
How important is all players getting play time (not necessarily equal time) (5 very important – 1 not at all important)?
Give an example of a typical practice plan:
If you are not selected as head coach, would you be willing to work as an assistant coach? If so, are there any coaches you would prefer to work with?
If you are selected as head coach, would you be willing to have a not-selected applicant as assistant coach?  If so, are there any coaches you would prefer to work with?
Do you have a related athlete in the program right now?  If so, who?

Mid American District Hockey Background Screening

Please see the information below for the updated Background Screening process.

New Safesport requartments and Screening

As a result of serious incidents well covered by the media, the federal government has instituted additional requirements for participants, coaches and volunteers.  To comply with the federal governmental requirements, USA Hockey does not want players or officials who will soon be turning 18 to become ineligible in the middle of a season.

Therefore, USA Hockey is requiring all players 17 years of age or older on or before December 31st of this upcoming (2019-20) playing season and who play on a team in a classification that allows minor aged players, (i.e. 18U or high school) to complete SafeSport Training before being added to a team and prior to participation with the team (on-ice or off-ice). This requirement applies to all teams in the age classifications Youth, Girls, High School, Junior Hockey, Flex Hockey and Disabled Hockey programs that allow both minor age and adult age players (anyone over 18 years).  No screening is necessary or possible for individuals less than 18 years of age.

Players in the group identified above that have not completed SafeSport Training cannot be placed on the team’s roster in the USA Hockey registration portal (where rosters are created). The computer program will prevent the player from being added to the team until they have completed the training. Because the player is not on the Official Roster, they are prohibited from participating with the team until the training is completed and the player can be added to the roster.

We strongly recommend that players act on this new requirement NOW if they are currently 17 or older, or will be on or before December 31st.

The program is taken online and requires about 90 minutes to complete. Once the fall season is underway, players will likely be consumed with school, hockey, and other commitments. It is to their advantage to take the SafeSport Program NOW and not wait until it is time to be placed on a roster and games are starting.

The SafeSport Program is free. You must have a USAH Registration Confirmation Number to register to take the training. Players registered with USAH for the 2018/19 season can use the USA Hockey Confirmation Number from that season (which is valid until August 31, 2019) to register to take the training. They may also register with USA Hockey for the 2019/20 and use that confirmation number to register for the course. Effective September 1, 2019, registration for the program requires a 2019/20 USA Hockey Registration.

To take the SafeSport Program access the online program via the USA Hockey Website Or use this direct link to access the SafeSport site:

One of the most exciting aspects of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program is the online training/education that is available to help our members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in our sport. We are pleased to announce that all USA Hockey registered coaches ...



Like the requirement this year to complete SafeSport, we anticipate additional changes regarding screening in the 2020/2021 season. At the present time, for the 2019/20 season, there is not a requirement for these individuals (less than 18 years of age or turning 18 during this upcoming season)  to be screened

Below you will find the Link to the Midam Hockey Screening site.

2019-2020 Indiana HS - All Teams Rankings

MYHockey rankings are calculated using the most accurate, objective formula available for North American youth hockey. The rankings do a great job of answer questions about the relative strength of your opponents. There are imperfections such as incomplete or inaccurate lists of game scores. Because one formula can't perfectly place every team at every level, we do see teams that logic might tell us should be ranked higher or lower. One team's slight misplacement does not, however, mean that a different formula be used to place the other in MYHockey. Please read the MYHockey FAQ for more info about MYHockey and our ranking algorithm.
