Re: USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Requirements for the 2022-23 Season
Dear USA Hockey Member Programs and Affiliates,
This letter outlines specific Safe Sport requirements for USA Hockey Member Programs, including changes for the 2022-23 season. USA Hockey has adopted the policies of the U.S. Center for SafeSport (“Center”), including the SafeSport Code and the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (“MAAPP”), and incorporated the SafeSport Code and MAAPP into the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Handbook.
Each USA Hockey Affiliate and Member Program must agree to and comply with the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Policies as a condition of sanctioning by USA Hockey or an Affiliate. In addition, each Member Program must take steps to ensure the Safe Sport Policies are followed at all USA Hockey sanctioned events. All violations of the Safe Sport Program Policies must be properly reported, investigated, and resolved.
