USA Hockey has long been a leader in efforts to provide a safe environment for all participants. That evolution has continued with the implementation of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program, which combines long-standing USA Hockey policies with new initiatives aimed specifically at misconduct that can occur off the ice. As you may know, among the components of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program are carefully defined policies prohibiting various forms of abuse, from sexual, physical and emotional, to bullying, threats and hazing. The policies also address areas where misconduct can occur and are intended to reduce the risk of potential abuse, including a locker room policy, a travel policy, and situations surrounding the ever-expanding growth of social media and electronic communications.
