Its Time for New USA Hockey Numbers!


We hope everyone is having a great spring season, but before you know it it will be time to take the ice again!  
As of April 1st 2017/18 USA Hockey Numbers are available for renewal and as of August 1st your skater's (and your) USA membership will expire.   If you have any questions about how to obtain or renew your membership please see the document entitled "How to Get A USA Hockey Number" in the Documents section of our website (Left hand verticle menu).  
We use this number for multiple things; not the least of which is insurance (medical and liability) and it is required before your skater can take the ice.  We realize that this is probably not at the top of your to do list but we would like to request that all numbers be obtained and entered into your skater's page as well as sending it to our registrar Nicole Dukett at   
If you've already sent it THANK YOU! 
Coaches, Schedulers, Team Managers and Volunteers will also need to provide updated USA Hockey numbers and input them into their profile.
The CT Hockey Conference and ECHO Board of Directors have made 100% compliance our goal.  There will be no exceptions this year,  if your player's number has not been received prior to the first practice they will not be allowed to take the ice. 
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
ECHO Board of Directors
Nicole Dukett ECHO Registrar
