Houston Wild Supports USAH SafeSport Program


Click on above image to view USAH SafeSport Program

During the 2012 USAH Annual Congress Meeting, the USAH Board of Directors unanimously endorsed the USAH SafeSport Program.  The safety of USAH participants is paramount, and the SafeSport Program is focused on creating an environment that will deter abusers and assist those in the hockey community in recognizing, reducing, and responding to allegations of suspected abuse and misconduct both on and off the ice.
 
In addition to the Houston Wild’s players' skill development, the safety and protection of our participants and their enjoyment of the sport of hockey is central to the goals of our organization.  The Houston Wild encourages that all members adhere to the USAH SafeSport Program and continues its commitment to set precedence for:
  • the safety and wellbeing of our players, both on and off the ice
  • improved locker room supervision
  • players’ increased awareness and respect for the “team concept” in an effort to build and/or strengthen a positive team culture.
The Houston Wild USAH SafeSport Program Representative will serve as the initial point of contact for Houston Wild members reporting abuse, misconduct, or other violations as outlined in the USAH SafeSport Program.

USA Hockey Zero Tolerance Policy

With the start of the 2018-19 season nearly upon us, the Wild Board looks to all Houston Wild coaches, players, and parents, and the Texas hockey community in general, to distribute, encourage, and implement the USA Hockey Zero Tolerance Policy.
 
Thanks for everyone’s continued commitment in this regard.
