A key development in 2005 occurred in the area of our coaching course structure. With support from the NHSA Executive Board and affiliated league representatives a U10/U12 Youth Module course was implemented. It replaced the previously conducted U8/U10 Youth Module class. As it stands, the following configuration is currently in place; 'G' Course, U6/U8 Youth Module, U10/U12 Youth Module, 'E' Course, 'D' Course, *Specialty Courses.

With this change came an adjustment in certification requirements for new coaches of competitive teams. These changes were made to create a better fit between the information coaches are given in the classes and the skills they need to be successful during practical application with their teams.
