Club Excellance

     The new Club Excellence platform is now available for local associations to start accessing.  Below is an overview of the  program and instructions for  gaining access to the portal.
     Club Excellence is a new online portal system designed to give USA Hockey associations a unique home that will drive organizational success. The portal walks local 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 for access. 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 specific association role. 
     The site is available, but not 100% complete at this point. Over the next few months, features and information will continue to be added.
     
To learn more and submit for access to your association’s portal, visit: http://www.usahockey.com/clubexcellence
     
If you have any questions about the program, please contact Kevin Erlenbach at  (719) 538-1119 or ClubExcellence@usahockey.org.
