In the interest of safety for youth hockey players on and off the ice, NM Off-Ice Officials are required to maintain the following combination of registrations and certifications.
NOTE: If you are already involved in youth hockey here in New Mexico nothing here will be new, so just consider this an advisory.
Land Of Enchantment Hockey Association [LOEHA] pays for this and is reimbursed by the leagues and teams in the area so, if you complete this registration as outlined below you should not be billed to register or renew your registration.
NOTE: Your confirmation email will also contain your USA Hockey registration or Member Number. Double check that your information included in the email is correct, most importantly that the Registration Category indicates MANAGER/VOLUNTEER and Land Of Enchantment Hockey Association (Loeha) is listed under the Affiliate heading. If you do not see the email after several minutes, check your spam or junk email folder.
If you are in a position of authority over or have regular contact with USA Hockey athletes, including without limitation a staff member, official, coach, board member, coordinator, local program administrator, trainer, locker room monitor, independent contractor, volunteer, medical personnel, or other person with authority over or have regular contact with USA Hockey athletes, then you are required to complete a background check as a condition of your involvement. Background screens are valid for two seasons. Background checks are conducted by USA Hockey’s screening vendor, the National Center for Safety Initiatives (“NCSI”). Your USA Hockey registration number will be required during the application process.
Safesport Training review is an annual requirement and can be completed on line at your convenience. Your USA Hockey registration number will be required during the application process.
It is recommended you print or save a PDF of your certificate as a back up should it be necessary to prove completion.
Thank you for your willingness to serve as a NM OiO and taking the time to complete these registrations and certifications.
Once you have completed all three requirements, please email or contact the OiO coordinators and inform them that your registration and certification requirement has been completed.
