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

  Quick Change Goalie Equipment

Click HERE to see video.

The QuickChange goalie equipment system is a must-own for all youth hockey organizations with 6U and 8U programs. This equipment is specifically designed to make it easy for a coach or parent to convert a skater into a goalie. Within one minute, you can have your skater ready to play between the pipes. The set features a Youth L/XL goalie-padded jersey, 24-inch goalie leg pads and an equipment bag.

Those attending the Workshop in Wausau will receive 1 set of QuickChange goalie equipment. Limit 1 per association.

Over the past several seasons, it has become increasingly obvious how out-of-control some parents have become (not to mention some of the youth coaches we deal with).  The Duluth News Tribune is running a three-part series on this issue relative to high school coaches.
