Safe Sport Locker Room Rules

SafeSport expectations are in place to protect our children and keep them safe at all times while playing hockey at home and away.

It is the responsibility of each program’s coaches to monitor locker rooms at home and away. The following rules should be followed:

  • Coaches are to be in the locker room when players are, and should be monitoring player behavior, dressing, and parents helping players
  • No one should be alone in the locker room at any time. This includes coaches, parents, players and siblings
  • Parents and volunteers should not be helping children with dressing, toileting or any other direct hands-on assistance unless it is their own child. The only exception is if the parent or volunteer has been successfully screened through MidAm’s screening agency
