One of the most exciting aspects of the USA Hockey SafeSport 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, employees and volunteers are entitled to take the training at no cost.
The SafeSport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for two (2) seasons. Thus, if you took the training during the 2015-16 season, it was valid for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons and you will need to complete the SafeSport Refresher course for this 2017-18 season.
INTERRUPTION OF SERVICE
With the opening of the U.S. Center for SafeSport, the SafeSport Training will soon move to a new platform. Anyone wishing to complete the existing SafeSport courses, including the refresher course, on the USOC’s training site must do so by Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
NO COURSES WILL BE AVAILABLE from NOVEMBER 1, 2017 at 11:59pm EST until NOVEMBER 6, 2017.
The new SafeSport training website and three-course training will launch on Monday, November 6, 2017.
Anyone needing to complete SafeSport training after the transition date will need to complete the new full course. Once completed, the new SafeSport Training will be good for two seasons and members will then again be eligible for the new refresher module.
Members who need a copy of their SafeSport Training or SafeSport Refresher completion certificates, should print/save a copy prior to November 1, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
PLEASE NOTE that you will need your own USA Hockey Confirmation Number and your own email address to access the training. See our FAQ below for further information.
PLEASE NOTE: The SafeSport Parent course does NOT satisfy the training requirement for coaches, officials or other employees/volunteers (locker room monitors).
