Age Modules

This USA Hockey requirement must be completed by Dec. 31st Please complete the module for your specific level you are coaching. Each level is a one time course that stays on your coaching record.

SafeSport Information


Requirements for Coaches

For the 2017-2018 season, all coaches will be required to complete the SafeSport Training. The SafeSport Training is valid for 2 seasons. Thus, if a coach or volunteer took the training for 2016-2017, he or she will not need to take the training again until the 2017-18 season (at which time a shorter “refresher” course will be available). USA Hockey requires that coaches complete SafeSport training prior to being added to a roster.

Specialty coaches (e.g. goalie coaches, power skating coaches, etc.) are required to take SafeSport Training and be screened, even if not on a roster, if they have regular, routine or frequent access to or supervision over youth participants.

How to Take the Training

The SafeSport Training is available to take right now so your program, coaches and other volunteers can get a head start on the season. The training is available at no cost. The training was produced by the United States Olympic Committee and is comprised of short video segments that take approximately 90 minutes to complete, however, not all training needs to be completed in one session. You will need your USA Hockey Member Confirmation Number, which can be obtained at (under Member Options, click on ‘Request Duplicate Registration Confirmation’).

If an employee or volunteer in your program is not currently a USA Hockey Member, they can obtain a Member Number to take the training, by registering with USA Hockey at no cost in the Ice Managers/Volunteers category.

Information on how to register and access the SafeSport Training can be found on our website at // Also, please be sure to select the USA Hockey SafeSport course as there are multiple courses available. The website also has links if you have questions about the training or on registering for the training.

We strongly encourage all of your coaches and volunteers to complete the SafeSport Training as soon as possible in order to meet their requirements for this season. Thank you for your diligence in helping make our sport as safe as possible!
