SEDOP Screening Program Changes
New for the 2015-2106 season, Officials in Florida must complete an annual (not biennial) background screening using the SAHOF screening agent, Blueline Services. This new procedure is required by Florida law and is not the result of any new requirement from USA Hockey or its affiliates. 


CEP Coaching Clinics

We are currently in the process of organizing CEP clinics for the 2015-16 season. Please check the Clinic Catalog regularly as clinic information will be posted as planning for each clinic concludes.

All coaches (head and assistants) must obtain CEP certification by December 31 of the current playing season.

Additionally, all coaches must complete the appropriate age-specific module by December 31 of the current playing season. Once you register you have 30 days in which to complete the module. All modules started after Dec. 1 must be completed by Dec. 31.  Module cost is $10.

Southeastern District Invitational Tournaments

Looking for a tournament?  All tournaments shown on our schedule are USA Hockey sanctioned events.  To have your tournament listed, please follow the instructions for sanctioning a tournament. Tournaments are added to the schedule after approval from the Southeastern District Registrar. 

The Southeastern District Caucus has mandated the District Registrar reject all requests for full ice tournaments in the Mite 8 & Under age classification.  If an Invitational Tournament Application is received that includes a Mite 8 & Under age classification, the tournament operator will be given the opportunity to choose either half ice or cross ice. If the operator wishes not to make a choice, the Mite division will not be sanctioned. 

For questions regarding this policy, please contact Mark Bodner, Southeastern District Registrar at

New Video Quantifies Cross-Ice Advantages

ADM Kids

What is it like to play on full ice as a 8 year old?

To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small area games. Learn more at
