Rec Bond Help Needed

LAHA- fellow Los Alamos Recreation Bond Supporters, 


We need your help to get the word out. We are down to the final days! We need lots of volunteers to hang door hangers on doors throughout Los Alamos and White Rock over the next two weeks. You don't need to ring door bells, just hang them. They have information so no-one can claim they didn't know about the bond! Kids can help you and you can do it at your own pace, during the day, on the weekend, whenever, as long as we get the word out.


If you are willing and able to help, please respond with your name and email address.


Thank you!

LA County Recreation Bond

Hello Hockey community!  LAHA is a strong advocate of Los Alamos County’s Recreation Bond initiative which includes a recreation center housing an indoor multi use arena (indoor ice rink during winter months) and gym space (see link below).  We wanted to get some information out on the project and ask for your support.  This is an extremely important initiative for LAHA.   


The advertising campaign to get the recreation bond passed has just kicked off.  Ballots for voting on the bond package will be mailed early in May so time is of the essence.  The link below is for the GoFundMe site that has been established to support the bond advertising.   All of the money will be spent to buy advertising and develop informational materials such as banners, yard signs, and flyers. Additionally, many residents are volunteering their time to plan and participate in events, knock on doors, and encourage their family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to vote Yes.

100% of your donation will be used to spread the word throughout our community about the projects; the reasons why our community should support it; and how the bond will impact property taxes.  Any size donation is welcome and greatly appreciated! LAHA and other organizations will be contributing as well. 

We need your support now. Thank you for your interest and contributions!

MANDATORY USAH Requirements For Volunteers


Lori Hinojosa is LAHA's new SafeSport Coordinator. Please read the following and complete the necessary steps before Sept 1, 2016 or interaction with children. 


Volunteer Requirements

LAHA Adult Volunteer registration is open and ready for the 2016-17 season- volunteers must register- it's free.

USAH requires volunteers to have a background screening as well as SafeSport Training (takes about 2 hrs.) prior to any volunteer activity.

These are mandatory, and are good for two years. If you completed a SafeSport training two years ago, then you only need to complete the refresher course this year (not as long as initial training).

If you are someone who falls with in the listed positions below, please complete these items ASAP.

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST- there are links and instructions you must follow.

Per the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Handbook those who need to be screened include:

1. Members of the LAHA Board of Directors

2. Local program administrators

3. Coaches

4. Team managers

5. Officials (over 18)

6. Locker room monitors

7. Team drivers (unless professional transportation companies are used)

8. Travel chaperones

9. Anyone with regular, routine or frequent access to youth participants

We may require that additional persons be screened.


Please check to see if your name appears onhttp://www.newmexicohockey.org/page/show/829216-good-to-go the "Good To Go" list first.

Screenings are good for 2 years, and you may have been cleared for this season already from a previous screening. Only proceed if your name doesn't appear on the list or if it is in RED.

Screenings cost a considerable amount of money, please only do them every two years.

If your name doesn't appear, please proceed to the link below, this part is very quick.

The website is: https://loeaha.volunteerportal.net/    password: hockeyiscool

Please remember, the background screenings can take 2 - 4 business days, and then have to be manually entered on the LOEAHA site. Therefore, should you not see your name on the list after 4 days, please email me directly before running another unnecessary screening.


This part takes a couple of hours, but is required. Remember, you do the initial training with a subsequent 'refresher' course every two years.

First, you must register as coach, referee, or volunteer on the USAH website, a membership number is required for the training. https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action

Once registration has been completed, then please proceed to the SafeSport training page.


Please keep a copy of your training certificate for your records.
