Wierbicki completes USA Hockey Level 5

East Hartford, Connecticut (May 17, 2023) – FreeAgentNow (FAN), a Connecticut-based technology company that assists educational and marketing efforts for student-athlete recruitment has announced that Roger Wierbicki, Founder/CEO of FreeAgentNow has acquired his Level 5 certification from USA Hockey. 

“The Level 5 Symposium is the pinnacle of the USA Hockey educational journey,” said Roger Wierbicki, Founder/CEO of FreeAgentNow. “Gaining this accreditation, being surrounded by superior level talent in coaching, development and mental health, while also being accompanied by my peers – not only helped me become a better coach, but more importantly a better individual and a better leader.”

The USA Hockey Level 5 Symposium takes place every two (2) years. The 2023 edition took place from May 4 – May 7 in Falmouth, Massachusetts. USA Hockey brings together experts in coaching instruction and player development. Breakout sessions specializing in a wide range of topics including cognitive thinking, decision-making skills and ecological dynamics take place. These sessions, while primarily focused on hockey, are applicable to all facets of group interaction and group goal setting.

“It is fun to come to the Level 5 to see coaches from all over the world,” said Steve Thompson, ADM Goaltending Manager for USA Hockey. “All of these coaches are here because they want to be, not because they have to be. This selflessness is a testament to these men and women who are trying to get better in their craft, ultimately benefiting the youth participants in the sport of hockey. I have been teaching Roger since he was a Level 1 and a Goaltending Bronze. At the end of 2024, Roger will have graduated with a Level 5 and a Goaltending Gold (the highest levels in both of our USA Hockey programs). This degree of commitment is something FAN should be proud of.”
