At IHA, we're dedicated to providing comprehensive support and resources for players, coaches, and officials across the nation.

Coaching and Accreditation:

Explore our National Coaching Accreditation & Compliance Scheme (NCACS), developed in partnership with the IIHF and the ASC. With structured learning syllabi across four levels, coaches enhance their expertise while ensuring compliance with IHA and ASC standards. From beginner to advanced levels, our coaching framework empowers coaches to uphold the IHA Coaching Code of Behaviour & Ethics and drive player development with our National Player Development Framework and Skills Development Manual.


Officiating Standards:

Delve into the essential resources provided in our Officials' Handbook, equipping authorized officials with the knowledge required to officiate IHA-sanctioned matches. Derived from the IIHF Official Rule Book, our Rules & Standards guide offers practical officiating information and rule interpretations, ensuring consistent application across Australian ice hockey competitions. Explore detailed officiating examples through our video resources, benefiting officials, players, team officials, and fans alike.
