Welcome NEW and returning Hockey Coaches!

Bill Huot is our new coaching coordinator at Midcoast Hockey and as summarized coaching information below.  There are two mandatory coaches meetings coming up on Sept. 24 (off ice) and Oct. 12 (on ice).  Important details below.

Equipment required:






Coaching Attire:

We would like to have everyone who is coaching try to have either a dark blue or black hockey attire (top and bottom).  This will help the organization look more organized and the parents can readily recognize coaches.  I understand it is an additional cost so hopefully getting this information out early we can have enough time to plan, save and shop for the proper attire.


Clinics:  (sign up early!!!  Don't get shut out...)

Some coaches have inquired about coaching certifications.  USA hockey has recently posted clinics to the USA hockey website which can be found at the following address.


A few which have not yet been posted to the website for level 1 include

Sat 10/24 at USM, Gorham time tbd

Sun 11/22 at UMO, Orono time tbd, and

Sun 12/13 at the Ice Vault, Hallowell time tbd.

Please carefully review and complete the list of preseason coaching requirements and training at the coaching tab on our website, don't delay!

Bill Huot will send out an e-mail to remind everyone as we get closer to this date.  If you have not received an email directly from Bill, please email him at to get on the list.
