SafeSport and Background Screening REQUIREMENT

BEFORE the 2023-24 season starts (ASAP if after October 2nd, 2023) AND BEFORE taking the ice (for coaching roles).


          - Complete the current SafeSport training or refresher  (required every year). 

There isn't a certificate to save any longer.  This training resets every September - so it is recommended to knock this out in mid-to-late September before the season starts the first week of October.  There's still no cost on this training. (CLICK HERE - Create an account if necessary)

Once into the USA Hockey Courses site, click on the "My Profile" tab at the top & choose "Coaching Information" in the gray box. this will show your CEP #, Certification Level (& when it expires), all age modules completed (see below) and there's a gray box under SafeSport for training/renewals - that's the link you want to click to complete this training.

Update - September 2023:
If you have already completed SafeSport before and need to renew - you should receive an email noting these details:

If you are a coach or an official go to https://courses.usahockey.com/public/
Log in with your user name and password
On the home screen click link to go to "Coach eLearning" - Safe Sport Training should be listed

  • Verify that my background screening is in good standing:

  • Complete the Age-Appropriate Training for the level(s) I'm coaching at BEFORE I can go on the ice
  • Plan to Complete my CEP Coaching Clinic BEFORE 12/31/23 (in order to still go on the ice after 1/1/24)
