USA HOCKEY SAFE SPORT

USA HOCKEY SAFESPORT


The safety of all MYHA athletes is paramount to our association and USA Hockey both on and off the ice. We will do everything in our power to protect our kid’s from physical, sexual, and any other type of abuse and create and maintain a safe and enjoyable environment this hockey season.

As an MYHA parent take the time to review USA Hockey SafeSport’s Program Handbook at https://portal.usahockey.com/forms/usah-safesport-handbook.pdf. Then, talk to your kids to help them understand what bullying, harassment, hazing, and sexual/physical/emotional abuse is and how serious these issues are.

To decrease the risk for abuse and/or misconduct MYHA has strengthened USA Hockey’s mobile device policy. Cell phones, laptops, IPads or mobile devices with recording capabilities such as still cameras and video cameras is prohibited. These devices are banned from locker rooms, changing areas, and by players participating in any on-ice or off-ice session. This policy is applicable to players of all ages and parents/family members/guardians.

Again, through the USA Hockey SafeSport Program, MYHA is dedicated to creating the safest possible environment for our kids to play this great sport. For Safesport related questions please contact our President Dave Brocato at bayoupucknut@yahoo.com or any board member listed under the "About" then board tab at the top of the page.
