Please continue to re-visit the Creek Hockey website for more information and updates regarding tryouts. Practice times, game times and off ice training times are being scheduled and will be available on the website calendar.
USA Hockey has taken great steps to ensure player safety and this year have implemented a SafeSport mandatory training for birth years 2003 and below.
As players register for tryouts and get their new USA 2020-2021 Number you will be instructed to go to www.USAhockey.com/trainingregistration. Your player will then take the course and be certified for 2 years.
It is important that you complete your training asap as no Player will be eligible to be rostered for a Tournament or a USA Hockey roster as your name will be red lined until the course is taken. Cherry Creek has Tournaments in August and we will be sending our roster for certification on August 6th.
Below is additional information.
New from USAH and the Olympic Center for SafeSport - players born in 2003 or earlier that will be on youth
18U, girls 19U, High School or mixed age teams that can include minors (such as disabled or flex) will
need to complete SS training PRIOR to being added to a roster!
These players will be grayed out and it will not be possible to roster them until their training is complete so it is
crucial to make sure impacted teams and players are aware of this.
There are a couple of early High School tournaments on the schedule (earliest beginning 8/22) so players/teams
need to plan ahead for this new requirement.
The players need to register with USAH for the 2020-21 season first. They will then need to use their
confirmation number for the 20-21 season to access SS training and complete the course. They should use the
exact same name to register with USAH and to take the SS training. Each player needs to access the course
with their own number, so this can’t be done with a group viewing the course together on one
screen. However, it could work to get the team/players together, each with their own laptop, to take the course in
the same location at the same time! Team bonding:)
Parents registering 2003 and older players with USAH after the end of April 2020 have or will sign off on a form
that gives consent for the player to take the training. Parents of impacted players that registered prior (during
April) to the addition of the consent form are being contacted by USAH for consent. Anyone unable to take the
training can contact Susan Cardasis or Anda Craven. We will put them in touch with USAH to request a waiver
from the Center for SafeSport. The waiver process may take a while (days, weeks?) so this should not be done
at the last minute.
Once players are claimed/submitted through the registration portal the association registrar will be able to see the
status of their SafeSport training (complete or incomplete). In the meantime it might be a good idea to ask
players to send their certificate of completion to their association registrar in case their data does not merge and
to help track which players are in compliance and who still needs to complete the training.
If you have additional questions please contact Ralph Bammert who is our SafeSport coordinator at Rbammert@q.com
