HPHL believes that creating a “youth–safe” organization depends on having clear structures and an open and aware culture in place. This includes implementing youth protection safeguards and ensuring all personnel, players and members feel confident and comfortable speaking out.

Most SafeSport Violations should be managed at the association level with a copy of the final report supplied to the CAHA SafeSport Coordinator so that there is a history of the behavior in the event of repeat behavior by the alleged offender surfaces.
Any SafeSport policy violations where abuse is involved or the law is broken should be reported immediately to law enforcement and the alleged offender suspended from all association activities and interaction with their players. Please provide a report to the CAHA SafeSort Coordinator immediately as well as USA Hockey.
