USA Hockey has enjoyed another successful year, highlighted by continued growth at our entry-level age group, the further roll-out and embracing of the American Development Model, and unparalleled results in international competition.  Yet there is nothing more vital to the continued advancement of our sport that making it safe.


Attached for your review and implementation is a new policy on Locker Room Supervision that was passed overwhelmingly at our recent Board of Directors meeting.


Please forward this (or download and make copies) to everyone in your association who is in a leadership position or is responsible for the communication and implementation of policies and procedures.


A couple of notes on this policy... our youth players need to know that their hockey environment is safe. This policy ensures that a responsible adult is looking over their shoulders at all times. Of course, all locker room monitors should be gender correct and the co-ed locker room policy must be followed as described in the current USA Hockey Guide. Also, all monitors must be screened and otherwise meet all USA Hockey screening standards.


In the near future we will be sending you additional information about all USA Hockey Policies including Screening, Zero Tolerance and Gender Equity (co-ed locker room).


If you have any questions, please contact USA Hockey Member Services Department at or 1-800-566-3288, ext 123


Handling Concussions
To all:

There are two basic programs.
You can also learn a lot about the psychometric programs for evaluating head trauma at
