Cleared Background Screening List

Information on Background Checks

Background:   In June 2010, the USA Hockey Board of Directors with a nearly unanimous vote adopted a policy mandating locker room monitoring for all USA Hockey youth teams, including teams of all USA Hockey affiliates.  The rule simply provides that teams “…have at least one responsible adult present directly monitoring the locker room during all team events….”   USA Hockey 2010-11 Annual Guide, p. 35.  

Background checks are good for 2 years; if you were screened after April 1, 2019 for the 2019-2020 season, your screen is valid for the 2020-21 season, and you will not need to be screened under the new system until prior to the 2021-22 season.  If your most recent screen is from prior to April 1, 2019, you will need to be screened under the new system in order to participate in the upcoming season.
