Required SafeSport Training Annually
Please note, if you are a 2006 birth year or earlier, you will be required to take the SafeSport Core Training or Refresher Course prior to participation in the 2023-24 season.
One of the most exciting aspects of the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program is the online training/education that is available to help our members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in our sport. We are pleased to announce that all USA Hockey registered coaches, officials, players, employees, and volunteers are entitled to take the training at no cost.
The Safe Sport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for twelve (12) months beginning on 4/1.
As of January 1, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport trained or are seeking retraining will need to complete the new SafeSport training, which features updated content.
Once you have completed the Core SafeSport Course, there will be a Refresher Course available for individuals who have previously completed the Core Safe Sport course and need to retrain. Users completing the SafeSport refresher course will be trained for an additional season. After completing Refresher 3, you will take the Core Training for the next season.
PLEASE NOTE that you will need your own USA Hockey Confirmation Number or Referee Number and your own email address to access the training. You can locate your number OR obtain a number here membership.usahockey.com. If you will not be participating as a player, coach, or referee, you can register at no cost under the ice manager/volunteer category to obtain your USA Hockey Confirmation Number.
