Notification

Following notice of a credible allegation that results in the removal of an employee, volunteer, independent contractor and/or other participant, USA Hockey, the Affiliate or Member Program may consider the circumstances in which it will notify parents of other participants with whom the accused individual may have had contact. As appropriate, USA Hockey, its Affiliates and/or Member Programs may notify its staff members, volunteers, parents, and/or participants of any allegation of child physical or sexual abuse or other criminal behavior that (1) law enforcement authorities are actively investigating; or (2) is being investigated internally by USA Hockey, its Affiliates and/or Member Programs; or (3) has been referred to the USCSS. Advising others of an allegation may lead to additional reports of child physical or sexual abuse and other misconduct.
