2. SafeSport Training (if 18+ years old):
All officials who are 18 years-of-age or older must complete the SafeSport training program. This online based program trains coaches, officials, and key volunteers in detecting and preventing detrimental behavior (hazing, abuse, etc.) off the playing surface. Once completed, the training certification is good for two years before re-certification is required. This training must be completed in addition to your USA Hockey Local Affiliate Background Checks.
**For the state of Montana, every official must also complete the free MAHA background Screening every year**
SafeSport Training is required to officiate at all levels so get it done
