Agreeing to the WYHA Player & Parent/Guardian Code of Conduct is part of the registration process for each player and their parents/guardians. All players and parents/guardians are expected to know the code of conduct. If necessary, please reference this document for managing problems or concerns that arise. Thank you.
At WYHA we are committed to cultivating an environment where diverse backgrounds and experiences are welcome. We support all teammates, coaches, fans, officials, facilities workers, volunteers and opponents who provide their time and effort to make hockey possible. We believe all our interactions should be safe and inclusive of all walks of life regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation or social-economic status.
Expectations pertaining to I&D can be found on the link below.
The following form exists as a means to share Code of Conduct or Inclusion & Diversity concerns, should you feel the need to escalate an issue. It will route to a committee within the Board of Directors who will follow-up with you.
The Wayzata Youth Hockey Association (WYHA) is committed to following the guidelines set forth by USA Hockey’s SafeSport Program to help protect our participants from physical abuse, sexual abuse and other types of misconduct, including emotional abuse, bullying, threats, harassment, and hazing. To ensure that these goals are met, WYHA has committed to the following Locker Room policies and procedures, which are designed to maintain personal privacy as well as reduce the risk of misconduct within locker rooms.
If you are a coach or volunteer that will be serving as a Locker Room Monitor (LRM), please review the attached policy and make sure you are aware of all the requirements.
To become eligible to serve as a LRM, please ensure you have completed the following steps:
Become certified through the USA Hockey SafeSport program. This consists of participating in several hours of online training provided by the U.S. Center for Safesport Training.
Complete the USA Hockey Background Screening. Locker Room Monitors need to complete the background screening BEFORE being confirmed as a LRM. The new process implemented by USA Hockey several years ago has a $30 fee, but screenings are good for 2 years. This means if you completed a screening anytime after 4/1/2022, it should be good for the 2023-2024 season. The eight digit self-registration ID number for USAH to initiate your screen is 35615801. Once you complete the screening process, we will be able to track it through the USA Hockey portal so there is no need to submit confirmation.
