Posted by CMHA Administrator on Oct 19 2016 at 01:56PM PDT in 2016-2017 Season


October 18, 2016

TO: BC Hockey Membership

FROM: Barry Petrachenko
Chief Executive Officer

SUBJECT: HCSP Certification Reminder
Please note that the BC Hockey’s Policy Manual has been updated.
Section Four of this pertains to the Hockey Canada Safety Program, Respect in Sport Guidelines, Locker Room Policy and Parent Meeting Policy and includes changes which affect all teams:
NEW: All BC Hockey Minor Teams are required to register a Safety Person who is certified in the Hockey Canada Safety Program (HCSP). The Safety Person is required to be certified prior to participation in practice and games.

NEW: Minor Hockey Associations are to ensure that a Safety Person who is certified in the Hockey Canada Safety Program (HCSP) is in attendance during all sanctioned activities. Failure to meet this requirement may result in the revocation of BC Hockey sanctioning. Unsanctioned events are not covered by the association’s insurance policy.
If you require any information regarding these adjustments please contact our Safety Coordinator Anne Deitch at

*Note: As CMHA policy as always been that the HCSP should be in attendance at every game and practise, this does not change much except the additional requirement of attendance at every sanctioned event.
