Once completed, provide the registration number on the MCYH Coaching Application or to the MCYH Coaching Director.

This is very important. Be sure to select our association – ‘Mason City Youth Hockey’ – on the next page of the online form.
USA HOCKEY SAFE SPORT TRAINING:
For the 2016-17 season, all coaches will be required to complete the SafeSport Training. The SafeSport Training is valid for 2 seasons. Thus, if a coach took the training for 2015-16 he or she will not need to take the training again until the 2017-18 season (at which time a shorter “refresher” course will be available). The deadline for coaches to complete the training is November 1st, 2016.
The training is available at no cost. The training was produced by the United States Olympic Committee and is comprised of short video segments that take approximately 90 minutes to complete, however, not all training needs to be completed in one session. You will need your USA Hockey Member Number.
Information on how to register and access the SafeSport Training can be found on the USA Hockey website at http://www.usahockey.com/page/show/909009-safesport-program-training- . Also, please be sure to select the ‘USA Hockey SafeSport’ course as there are multiple courses available. The website also has links if you have questions about the training or on registering for the training.

** Upon completion of the training, a printout of the SafeSport certificate must be submitted to the association SafeSport Coordinator **
