VOLUNTEERS: Now is the time. Complete your SafeSport training!

By Jared, 09/06/17, 11:00AM CDT


The SafeSport Training completed by all MSH volunteers helps keep all participating individuals safe on and off the ice. Completed once every two years, this training is for all USA Hockey coaches, officials, managers and volunteers with regular, routine or frequent access to or supervision over youth participants and MUST be completed before the individual's participation on or off ice.

This year the training module is changing platforms between 9/18 and 10/2, which will require creating a new account on the new platform. No big deal right? Right.

However, the refresher training program will not be available and the new training will have a different format and updated content. Again, no big deal right? Yep.

USA Hockey suggests that if you are eligible for the refresher training, that you should complete it before the transition, which is valid for another two seasons. Then you can jump to the new platform and complete the new full training every couple years going forward.

Remember, there are no exceptions. Volunteers must complete these certifications before ANY participation in MSH events this season.

I bet you are wondering: Which trainings or certifications am I required to complete? I have taken these before but don't know my status, how can I find out? What are the links for the certifications?
