New for 2020-21, we are requiring all HHS coaches to complete the Coaches Registration through Family ID prior to the start of their season. This mandatory registration includes paid and volunteer coaches. This does not take the place of a contract or guarantee of employment. This form is for coaches contact information and tracking required certifications.
In order to be eligible to coach, the NHIAA requires various certifications. The NHIAA Coaches Eligibility Brochure outlines the details of the certification requirements. Paid coaches must complete all required courses before the start of their respective season. Volunteer coaches are encouraged to go through training, but if they will always be in the presence of another certified coach, the certifications are not required.
Uploading copies of certifications are NOT required to finish this registration, however, we ask that if you are able to upload copies of certification you do so during the registration process or return to your registration to upload documents once complete. In the section titled "education", coaches will be able to upload copies of their certifications. For coaches that have previously submitted certifications that are still valid, we can upload the documents for you once you have completed the Family ID Coaches Enrollment. For returning coaches, please log into the NHIAA Coach Log In to see what certifications are expiring.
The links to the right will connect you to the online courses available to meet certification requirements. The First Aid, First Aid/CPR/AED and Fundamentals of Coaching have a course fee that will be reimbursed by the Athletic Department upon submission of your certificate and proof of payment. The remaining courses listed are free of charge. Due to COVID-19, the NHIAA has decided that all classes, including the courses that formerly required physical attendance, will now be taken online and accepted by the NHIAA until the end of the calendar year 2020.
Hanover High School believes that athletics is an important part of the secondary school curriculum, on par with other departments within the school and like them, under the control of the school's central administration. Lessons learned in the athletic program are integral to each student's educational experience.
With sufficiently qualified coaches and staff, HHS supports competitive teams at the varsity, junior varsity, and freshman levels. With your help, we field 57 athletic teams that represent 34 different sports. That translates into over 1000 athletic opportunities. Thank you for all you do for our students, school, and community.
