1. Background checks. No coach, manager, or any other volunteer will be allowed on the ice or near children until they have their background checks complete. Starting this year, all new background clearances are only good for 2 years instead of 3.
2. All volunteers (coaches, managers, board members...) must complete the Safe Sport online module on USAHockey.com. The module is free. PAHL will not accept any team rosters that have an individual that has not completed the online module.
