Background Screening List

The list of volunteers who are "Good to Go" regarding their background screening can be found under the "About" tab on the "Screening" page. If you volunteer in any capacity or coach for any LOE member association you must complete a background screening. If your name is not on the "Good to Go" list the screening must be completed before you may volunteer OR be on the ice with any youth.

Volunteers, coaches and managers must also complete SafeSport Certification.

More information can be found under the "About" tab or contact your local association President, SafeSport Coordinator or Risk Manager.

USA Hockey American Development Model

USA Hockey's American Development Model is improving hockey across the nation for players of ALL AGES.  ADM is NOT just for mites.

From the ADM Mission Statement:

"What's wrong with where we're going? For starters, many athletes spend too much time traveling, competing and recovering from competition and not enough time preparing for it. Second, there is too heavy a focus on the result rather than the performance. This attitude leads to long-term failure, as coaches forgo the development of skills to focus on specific game tactics. And third, too many athletes are specializing too early on. An early focus on just one or two sports often leads to injuries, burnout and capping athletic potential.

This way of thinking has led to 60% of players dropping out before PeeWees and 20% dropping out after only one season leading to an overall decline in retention since 2000."

To learn more about the American Development Model and how it can help you grow hockey in your association, go to www.admkids.com

If you have questions or need information about ADM you can contact LOE ADM Representative Brad  Bock at bockster13@hotmail.com or call him at 505-453-7748.
