When faced with adverse weather conditions, RAHA board members, coaches and managers do their best to assess the potential risks involved in traveling and hosting games. The safety of our families is our priority and decisions are made based first and foremost on safety. However, whether or not a game or practice is "on" and whether or not a rink is open are not deciding factors for families. Each family must decide based on their own comfort level with the given situation. The decision to play or not to play is yours. RAHA's attendance policy does not apply in periods of inclement weather.

Joining other youth sport organizations, USA Hockey has adopted SafeSport as a framework to enhance safety for its participants. This program goes beyond safe play on the ice and is focused on preventing and addressing physical and sexual abuse and eliminating hazing and bullying through background screenings, training, locker room policies, etc. RAHA has always taken seriously the need for providing a safe environment for our children both on and off the ice. SafeSport provides a framework, training and specific policies and practices to enhance our efforts to ensure a safe environment. The following are four specific actions the RAHA Board has implemented:
SafeSport Director - Bruce Walker is the SafeSport Director for RAHA. Bruce has reviewed all the SafeSport material, RAHA policies and is ensuring implementation.
Policies – Following USA Hockey, RAHA has updated and posted travel and locker room policies. Please review and ensure you and your player are acting accordingly. (These can be found in the 'Policies' tab on the RAHA Website)
Screening: While this has been done for a number years, you should be aware that all board members, coaches and volunteers who come into regular contact with children are screened by an external resource provided by CHC.
Training. All board members, coaches and volunteers who come into regular contact with children must be registered with USA Hockey and must complete the SafeSport training.
To learn more about SafeSport, please visit the USA Hockey website or SafeSport.org.
As always, the Board welcomes your feedback and appreciates your support to enhance the RAHA experience.
