The following is an excerpt taken directly from USA Hockey's Coaching requirements PDF.
The head coach and all assistant coaches of each disabled hockey team must complete the required CEP registration
and proper level of certification. Those volunteers or employees who assist with helping disabled hockey teams
(i.e. interpreters, pushers, on-ice mentors, etc.) must be properly registered with USA Hockey but are not required
to attend a CEP clinic and otherwise comply with these rules and regulations.
