Southern Maine Youth Hockey Association (Huskies/Breakers) requires all volunteers who have significant contact with our players (e.g. Coaches, Team Admins, Locker Room Parents, etc.), to complete USA Hockey's SafeSport Training Module which can be accessed at:
The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to USA Hockey. USA Hockey SafeSport is the organization's program related to off-ice safety.
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.
Additional information on the SafeSport Program can be found here: http://www.usahockey.com/page/show/908023-usa-hockey-safesport-program
If you completed the SafeSport Program last season (2013-2014), you do not need to do so this season. The training is good for two years.
