The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to USA Hockey and TCAHA. USA Hockey SafeSport is the organization's program related to off-ice safety. One of the most exciting aspects of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program is the online training/education that is available to help our members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in our sport.
We are pleased to announce that all USA Hockey registered coaches, officials, employees and volunteers are entitled to take the training at no cost. TCAHA recommends that all of these individuals within TCAHA complete the training. The training was produced by the United States Olympic Committee and comprised of short video segments that take approximately 90 minutes to complete. However, not all training needs to be completed in one session.
