SafeSport & Background Checks Required for Coaches & Volunteers

The USA Hockey SafeSport Program includes required training for all USA Hockey coaches, officials, managers and volunteers with regular, routine or frequent access to or supervision over youth participants. As in previous seasons, these individuals will be required to have completed the training prior to that person’s participation (on ice or off ice) in a USA Hockey program.

The Center for SafeSport (run by the United States Olympic Committee) is in charge of the training and is requiring completion of the new certification.  There are 3 separate segments to complete.  A certificate is available for each segment but certification will only be acknowledged at the completion of all 3 segments and the completion certificate is provided. 

Please visit the MAHA website for links to both the SafeSport training and background screening.
