YOU MUST HAVE 2017-2018 USA HOCKEY REGISTRATION NUMBER TO APPLY
At the 2017 USA Hockey Annual Congress, USA Hockey passed a rule that will have direct impact on team registrations for the 2017/18 season.
Age-Specific Modules: ALL Coaches will not be able to be added to a Youth/Girls/HS Roster until the required Age-Specific Coaching Module has been completed. Coaches will not be allowed to participate with their teams until this requirement is met and processed through the USAH Registry. It can take a few days for USAH to process the information and the member will be able to be added to the team roster. We encourage you to plan accordingly.
SafeSport Training: Coaches and Managers will not be able to be added to a Youth/Girls/HS Roster until their SafeSport training has been completed. USA Hockey has an extensive SafeSport program that provides resources to ensure the safety of all involved in the game both on and off the ice.
Screening: Coaches and Managers will not be able to be added to a Youth/Girls/HS Roster until they have completed the required Screening process.
In addition a rule that impacts 14U AA teams (passed at the 2016 Annual Congress but effective this 2017-18 playing season):
The rule stipulates that if there is a player that is 12 years or younger registered on any 14 and under or U14 team (Tier I, Tier II, House League or Girls) that team will not be eligible to participate in the District or National Championship tournaments.
Based on this rule, we have extended the restriction to the SAHOF State Tournament. So for all teams at U14 and above, no Rosters will be approved for any team playing in the SFHL AA Division with a 12 year old or younger player (2005 Birth Year or younger).
