In prior years, the SafeSport Training has been offered through the US Olympic Committee training platform. With the opening of the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the “Center”), the SafeSport training will soon move to a new platform operated by the Center, and this email is to let you know about the transition and how it will affect both first-time users as well as existing USA Hockey members.
