Incidents and Injuries
A USA Hockey Incident report must be completed immediately following each incident or injury. Take a photo of the completed report and submit it to the Director of Managers via e-mail within 24 hours of injury.
In addition to the possibility of on-ice injury, there may be incidents that occur off-ice that the manager or a parent must report. Incidents include injury resulting from team events, parent altercations, player altercations, locker room occurrence, damage to property, or other possible situations that can occur between individuals and teams. Complete a report for all questionable incidents and submit them to the Director of Managers.
- A copy of the completed report must be kept in the binder for the duration of the season.
Reminder: The manager is privy to many aspects of player/family life. All information is confidential unless express permission is given from the parent/guardian.
