HPHL believes that all athletes deserve to participate in sports that are free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct or any form of emotional abuse. This includes implementing youth protection safeguards and ensuring all personnel, players and members feel confident and comfortable speaking out.
All coaches, managers, club coordinators, and players born in 2003 or earlier are required to take the SafeSport Training prior to being rostered on a team.
You will find the SafeSport Training on the USA Hockey website at http://www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining.
In order to meet the SafeSport requirement to be placed on a roster, players (2003 and older), coaches, and other team staff must take the "required core training" and NOT the "youth athlete courses".
To report a SafeSport incident, click on the link below and use the attached USA Hockey supplied form as a guide and gather the information requested.
Most SafeSport Violations should be managed at the association level with a copy of the final report supplied to the HPHL and CAHA SafeSport Coordinators 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 HPHL and CAHA SafeSport Coordinators immediately as well as USA Hockey.
