The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey. This includes not only on-ice safety, but also off-ice safety in any part of Minnesota Hockey’s programs. The USA Hockey Safe Sport Program is intended to protect all participants, not just players, from any type of misconduct or abuse.
By pulling together existing USAH off- ice safety policies related behavior and hockey environment management, constructing a supervision and monitoring structure, creating a reporting, investigatory, and response system, production of education and awareness training materials, and enhancing participant screening, USAH has taken giant steps towards improving off-ice safety.
USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for abuse and misconduct. Through the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program, USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey are committed to creating the safest possible environment for participation in hockey.
