LIHA 2019/20 Coaching Application
Thank you for applying to coach with the Lincoln Ice Hockey Association (LIHA).
Completing the coaching application is the first step to becoming a volunteer coach with LIHA.
Below are some items to keep in mind as you apply to be a LIHA Coach:
• All applicants will be interviewed and/or evaluated on skating skills and coaching knowledge/experience.
• LIHA’s Hockey and Coaching Directors will be evaluating coaching staffs and practice plans throughout the season.
• Coaches will be expected to implement suggestions and changes to practice plans as prescribed by either the Hockey or Coaching Director throughout the season. This is to ensure consistency and positive player development at all age levels. LIHA supports and implements the USA Hockey American Development Model.
• All coaches will be required to understand and adhere to all LIHA, SafeSport, and USA Hockey policies, procedures, and codes of conduct during sanctioned practices and games. This includes acquiring/maintaining applicable certifications as required by USA Hockey and SafeSport.
• Coaches are expected to maintain positive, open lines of communication with the Hockey and Coaching Directors as to address concerns or problems, and immediately report any player injuries, or violations of USAH or SafeSport policies.
In addition, you will need to register with USA Hockey as a coach. After completing a LIHA application and registering with USA Hockey, please complete an association background check, online SafeSport training, online age-specific training, and attend the appropriate coaching clinic. These steps must be taken before participating with any/all LIHA activities with the exception of attending a coaching clinic, which must be completed before Dec. 31.
For more information regarding these requirements, please see the LIHA Coach page at
*A coaching application must be submitted every season. Submitting a coaching application does not guarantee a coaching placement. All applications are reviewed by the Hockey and Coaching Directors and the LIHA board of directors. Travel team coaches will be posted online in June and House Coaches will be posted in late August.
