USA Hockey SafeSport Program

USA Hockey SafeSport is the organization's program related to off-ice safety.

From the SafeSport site: "USA Hockey has long had systems in place to protect its participants from physical abuse, sexual abuse and other types of abuse and misconduct that can be harmful to youth hockey players and other participants.  These include without limitation Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Screening, Locker Room Supervision and Hazing Policies, in addition to Codes of Conduct applicable to administrators, coaches, officials, parents, players and spectators.  The USA Hockey SafeSport Handbook is intended to update and collect USA Hockey’s various policies to protect its participants from all types of misconduct and abuse."

As of January 1, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new SafeSport training, which features updated content. Once you have completed the new Core SafeSport course, there will be a Refresher course available to recertify. 

You need to complete training if you hold one of the following positions:

  1. Coach at the traveling level: rostered and non-rostered

  5. Locker room monitor
