Coaching Equipment & Helmet Policy
All WHYHA on-ice coaches, assistant coaches, volunteers, and helpers must wear skates, helmets, gloves, and have a hockey stick. They should also be decked out in their Wolves warm-up suite as well!
ALL coaches MUST wear helmets on the ice during all practices. This includes any on-ice activity, house, travel teams, and clinics. We require 100% compliance by all CHC member programs and their coaches.
A properly secured helmet.
Per CHC guidelines, the rule is as follows: A “modern” properly fitted, (not modified), and secured helmet must be used at all times when a coach is on the ice. Enforcement is made through the punishment for each offense:
1st infraction = Warning
2nd infraction = 1-game suspension
3rd infraction = Match penalty
Sanctions may also be imposed upon the program for wanton disregard of this rule.
