USA Hockey mandates the safety and well-being of our athletes be taken very seriously. One of the many ways that we go about ensuring athlete safety is by requiring all coaches to take the SafeSport training every two years. Parents are encouraged to take the training, as well. Information on SafeSport, including how to take the training, can be found at safesport.org.
Direct links to the training:
SafeSport: http://training.teamusa.org/store/details/1 - For coaches who have not previously taken the training. Critical information to help keep every program safe: Athletes will perform better, soar higher, and get more from sport if they feel safe. Misconduct threatens that safety, and it can happen in every sport and at every competitive level. This SafeSport online training program teaches you about the nature of misconduct in sport: how to recognize it, how to prevent it, and how to take action. The information in this course will help keep sport a positive experience for every athlete, coach, and volunteer.
