Why is SafeSport so important?

The safety and well-being of our youth hockey participants is of paramount importance to Spokane Youth Hockey. Our national USA Hockey organization has long been a leader in safety among youth sports entities and has had systems in place to protect its participants from physical abuse, sexual abuse and other types of abuse and misconduct that can be harmful to youth hockey players and other participants. These include without limitation Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Screening, Locker Room Supervision and Hazing Policies, in addition to Codes of Conduct applicable to administrators, coaches, officials, parents, players and spectators. The USA Hockey SafeSport Handbook is intended to update and collect USA Hockey’s various policies to protect its participants from all types of misconduct and abuse.

Common SafeSport Questions

1. Do I need to take the SafeSport Training every season?

YES.  As of 4/1/20, SafeSport Training and the Refresher Course Training are valid for only one (1) season.   PLEASE NOTE: If you are a 2003 birth year or earlier, you will be required to take the SafeSport Core Training or Refresher Course prior to participation for the 2020-21 season.  

2. Can I use the same email address as someone else in my family to complete the SafeSport Training?

No, since an email address can be used to login for training, the same email address cannot be used to register multiple persons for SafeSport Training.  You will need to use a separate email address for the training.

3. How do I register for the SafeSport Training?

You will need to access/register for SafeSport Training using the link provided on our site under "Take The Course"

4. Why can't I just take Refresher Training again?

Please note that there is new and upated content for the Core SafeSport Course.   Everyone must complete the Core SafeSport course before being eligible to complete the Refresher course.
