USA HOCKEY is concerned with the locker room activities between minor players; minor players and adult players; adults being alone with individual minor players in the locker rooms; and with non-official or non related adults having unsupervised access to minor participants at sanctioned team events.
It is the policy of USA HOCKEY and USA HOCKEY INLINE that all affiliates, Districts, leagues, and local hockey programs have at least one responsible adult present directly monitoring the locker room during all team events to assure that only participants, coaches and players, approved team personnel and family members are permitted in the locker room and to supervise the conduct in the locker room. Any individual meetings with a minor participant an d a coach in a locker room shall require a responsible adult to be with the coach.
Further, responsible adults must personally monitor the locker room environment at all times while participants are present and also make sure the locker room is appropriately secured during times when minor participants are on the ice.
The modular's are available. Please let all your coaches know so they can now do it over the summer !
Any coach who needs to do it for the first time must still do it on line.
We will incorporate the the recertification of safe sport at our coaches meeting.
All coaches/officials in attendance who took safe sport two years ago and need to re certify this year will be able to do that at our coaches meeting.
