Parking and Access for Draft night Sunday 15th

Image result for parking imagesPlease give yourself some extra time to arrive and park at Arena complex on Sunday. Our understanding from Security is there is parking aval. between Stadium and Arena more towards the East part of the lot. If that lot fills, then there should be some parking behind Service Center. Please be patient during Construction which should be ending around the New Year. More updates will come out as we get them.

safesport update

SafeSport – Attached below are highlights and the memo summarizing SafeSport. 

  1. The US Center for SafeSport has exclusive jurisdiction over all allegations of Sexual Misconduct and has discretionary jurisdiction over other possible SafeSport allegations.
    1. Basically any adult, covered by USAH, is considered a mandatory reporter and if any such person learns of facts that give reason to suspect that a child has suffered an incident of Child Abuse,

the adult shall as soon as possible report the suspected abuse to both the US Center for SafeSport and to applicable law enforcement authorities.

  1. SafeSport Training;
    1. Beginning this season, SafeSport training is required every year.  However if you completed training in the most recent season (2018-19) you will retain valid training status for 2019-20.
    2. All (whether registered with USAH or not) board members of the clubs and affiliates are to have SafeSport training.  There will be audits conducted to assure all required have been trained. 
    3. All players born in 2002 and earlier that are playing on a team with players under 18 are required to have SafeSport training prior to being put on the roster.
    4. USAH will offer and give training to minor athletes with age-specific training, this will not be required for the minor athletes except for “c” above.
  2. Screening will move to a national program administered by USAH starting the 2020-21 season.  The US Olympic Committee is still in the process of finalizing background screening policies, hopefully finalizing by September this year.
    1. The USAH national program will still require the Pennsylvania individuals to still follow PA law for screening.  THIS WILL NOT REPLACE THE PA SCREENING REQUIREMENTS.
