Safesport Training- please complete before Sept 18th

All USA Hockey coaches, officials, managers and volunteers with regular, routine or frequent access to or supervision over youth participants  MUST complete the USA Hockey SafeSport Program.  This needs to be completed prior to that person’s participation (on ice or off ice) in a USA Hockey program.
 

This year it is important to note that this training will become more difficult to complete AFTER September 18, 2017.


In prior years, the SafeSport Training has been offered through the US Olympic Committee training platform. With the opening of the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the “Center”), the SafeSport training will soon move to a new platform operated by the Center, and this email is to let you know about the transition and how it will affect both first-time users as well as existing USA Hockey members.

  • The switchover date to the new platform is expected to take place between September 18 and October 2. After the transition date, anyone taking SafeSport training will need to create a new account on the new training platform.
  • After the transition date, the “refresher” training program will not be available. So, if you are eligible to take the shorter SafeSport Refresher training (which is approximately 35 minutes long), you should complete that training BEFORE September 18th, after which your training will be valid for another two seasons.
  • After the transition date, the new training will have a different format and content. Anyone needing to complete SafeSport Training after the transition date will need to complete the full course, which will be approximately 90 minutes long. Once completed, the new SafeSport Training will be good for two seasons and members will then again be eligible for the new refresher module.
  • Members who need a copy of their SafeSport Training or SafeSport Refresher Certificates should do so BEFORE September 18.


We hope you understand the importance of the training and to helping you be aware of how to maximize our participants’ safety.

Thank you for your diligence in helping make our sport as safe as possible!

2017 USAH Officials' Registration

Registration for officials begins today, Aug 1, 2017.

It is that time again.  The time for officials to register, train, and certify is NOW.  We cannot execute hockey without officials on the ice!  We are always desperate for referees in the northern areas and the ranks have been reduced statewide.  We need qualified help and will mentor you into a position of confidence to help us execute our programs.

 

The general certification steps are below and the full process is described on the USA Hockey officials website.

 

1.    USA HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION:

Note: This step must be completed before an official can complete Seminar Registration, the Open Book Exam, or Online Education Modules.

2.    SAFE-SPORT TRAINING (if 18+ years old):
3.    ONLINE EDUCATION MODULES
4.    OPEN BOOK EXAM
5.    CLASSROOM SEMINAR

All officials must complete membership registration before attempting to register for a classroom seminar. Please confirm seats are available prior to attempting membership registration and that a seminar date is available that you can attend (the registration fee is non-refundable).

You must pass a background check if 18 or older. 

You must register with NMHRC to be scheduled for games.

You must sign or acknowledge a NMHRC conduct policy.

 

Three NM seminars are offered for Level 1, 2, &3 officials.

You will have to register for the seminar online with USAH.  There will be no walk-ins accepted at the seminars.

New Mexico 2017 Seminars: 1) September 16th - Albuquerque

                                                2) October 14th - Santa Fe

                                            3) November 4th  - Taos

I strongly encourage you to register and complete your requirements as soon as possible. The earlier seminars are more conducive to reducing the late crush at USAH - please do not wait until the Nov seminar unless that is the only one that works for you.  You may not receive your certification prior to Dec 1st if you wait.  Remember your current registration is only good until November 30th.

loss in our LAHA family

We lost a member of the LAHA family this weekend in Trevor Matuszak, age 19. Trevor was a member of LAHA from a young age, and continued on to play as a varsity hockey player, and served as assistant captain in his Senior year.  He loved the game and always had a smile on his face.  He, along with his siblings, Griffin and Anna, and his parents, Mick and Karen, have been invaluable members of LAHA over the years. LAHA sends its thoughts and prayers to the Matuszak family.  Trevor will be missed, but never forgotten.

More information about services will follow.

Help needed

LAHA membership, 

 

We need more volunteers. We are short a board member, and we cannot execute the program without filling the positions that are open on the board. We are also in need of a scheduler. There will not be a season without people to help form and execute what is necessary to make the season happen.

 

Please let me know if you are able to help LAHA continue to be successful. 

 

Thank you, Susan Oldham and the LAHA Executive Board

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.

BACKGROUND SCREENING:

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.

SAFESPORT TRAINING:

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.

http://www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining

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