Background Check is required every two (2) years. Check with your local Registrar or Coaching Director to find out how to proceed.
SafeSport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for one (1) season beginning on 4/1/20. Once you have completed the Core SafeSport Course, there will be a Refresher Course available for individuals who have previously completed the core SafeSport Course and need to recertify. This is an online course, see link below. There is no cost for this training and it's available online.
Players with 2003 birth years and earlier will also be required to take the SafeSport Core Training or Refresher Course prior to participation for the 2020-2021 season.
***Important Note: All interested volunteers must contact their local association Registrar or Coaching Director to confirm that you will be participating with the program prior to registering with USA Hockey or completing the Background Screen. Failure to contact your Registrar or Coaching Director prior to Registration or Background Check may result in your Association seeking reimbursement for certain fees.
