Please be aware some deceptive e-mails are being generated and sent to local associations, clubs, and affiliates using the e-mail addresses listed on your websites. They are asking for payments, account balances, and money transfers. Most have fake e-mail addresses but look authentic. A few Treasurer's have also received faxes looking for the same information. Please make sure your association's Treasurers are on alert and double-checking to be sure they are not responding to these deceptive practices.

USA Hockey's Club Excellence
Club Excellence is a new online portal system designed to give USA Hockey associations a unique home to drive organizational success. The portal walks youth hockey leadership through the day-to-day needs of running a successful youth hockey association.
To access, the local association President or Vice President would need to submit through the link below. Once confirmed, they can invite the rest of the board to join them in the portal. Each leader has a job description, monthly tasks and a resource center with quick reference templates / best practice guides that relates to their association role.
If you have any questions about Club Excellence, please contact Brittany Bobak at (719) 538-1102 or email@example.com
