Talk to your local league. You will need to join USA Hockey if you're not already a member, but you don't necessarily have to get "certified" if you are only coaching in-house teams. Check with the local rules. Certification doesn't hurt though. They also have on-line, level specific education that might be helpful to you. The best coaches in our in-house PeeWee league are not certified, and if they only took certified coaches, they wouldn't have enough coaches for the league.
Obviously, if you don't have experience playing or coaching the game at any level, you might want/need more education.
