SafeSport Program Training

Required Safe Sport Core Training

Please note, if you are a 2004 birth year or earlier, you will be required to take the Safe Sport Core Training or Refresher Course prior to participation for the 2021-22 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 one (1) season beginning on 4/1/21.

As of January 1, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be Safe Sport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new Safe Sport training, which features updated content. 

Once you have completed the Core Safe Sport Course, there will be a Refresher Course available for individuals who have previously completed the core Safe Sport course and need to recertify. Users completing the SafeSport refresher course will be certified for an additional 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 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.
