Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Ice Rinks
The following document is to be used as a guideline for "best practices" in maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in Colorado ice rinks which are used for ice hockey. This document has been compiled using information from may sources, is not intended to be used as a legal document, but can be used as a resource when hockey associations and rinks are negotiating ice contracts. The goal is to keep players and fans safe.
CAHA SAFESPORT PROGRAM
CAHA is committed to not only improving the skill development of its Members but also the continuous safety and the welfare of its Members. CAHA believes that creating a “child–safe” organization depends on having clear structures and an open and aware culture in place. This includes implementing child protection safeguards and ensuring all personnel, children and members feel confident and comfortable speaking out. It is the role of the governing state body to the sport and to set standards for all Members. For this reason, CAHA is making compliance with USA Hockey SafeSport Program a condition of affiliation. CAHA supports full implementation of the USA Hockey SafeSport Program including the assignment of a Member SafeSport Coordinator, and requires each organization to read, understand and know the USA Hockey SafeSport Program. The USA Hockey SafeSport Program is designed to provide clear guidelines and expectations for all players, coaches and organization members on:
CAHA is committed to fully implementing a state wide SafeSport program starting with the 2013-2014 season. The purpose of this notification is to go give you a heads-up on the program requirements for each CAHA member League, Association, Independent Team, and Referee Association. Member Associations and Independent Teams will need to update their Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and list of officers/directors to incorporate the SafeSport program, before any teams can be registered for the 2013-2014 Season.
A copy of the USA Hockey SSP is included as an attachment to this notification and can be downloaded from http://www.usahockey.com/SafeSport.aspx
Implementation of the SSP requires more than just stating, “We shall follow the USAH Hockey and CAHA policies/procedures.” It requires the implementation of a local program that raises the awareness of child abuse, provides training, and protects the players, coaches, and volunteers.
CAHA has worked with Michele Peterson Consulting to develop the CAHA Safe....more to come
