It's almost time for hockey

Hey Whalers Families!  


We are getting so close to the beginning of the season. Can’t you believe it?? 


Here’s a list of things you can do to prepare:


  1. Every player MUST have a USA hockey number.  These numbers must be renewed annually.   Please go to www.usahockey.com to obtain a number.  Hold on to this number. Your team manager will be reaching out shortly to collect them.  
  2. If you are going to be helping your child in the locker room, the score box, or volunteering in any capacity: YOU MUST Register for a USA hockey number.    USA hockey numbers are free for volunteers, but it is a requirement.  Again, hold onto that number. 
  3. If number 2, applies to you, you MUST complete the background screening.   There is a $30 charge for this.  CHC is no longer covering these screenings.   On your USA hockey number confirmation, there will be a link for the screening.     If you were screened for the 2019-2020 season, you are all set for this season.   
  4. If number 2 applies to you, you MUST complete either the Safe Sport Core Course or the Safe Sport Refresher course. This course can be found at www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining.  The core course is only for those who have never taken the course before.  This includes players with birth years 2002 and 2003 (as well as girls 2001 birth years).  The refresher is for everyone else.   This is a free course but is MANDATORY.  Once you have completed the course, please email your certificate to our Safe Sport Coordinator, Lorena, at  .   WE CANNOT ADD YOU TO THE OFFICIAL USA HOCKEY ROSTERS UNTIL YOU COMPLETE THE SCREENING AND SAFE SPORT TRAINING COURSE. 
  5. If you are new to the Whalers and transferring in from another organization, you MUST request a Player Release form.    Your previous organization will submit these directly to the CHC. We cannot have you on the ice until you have been released from your previous organization.    
  6. If you are transferring out of the Whalers, you must also request a player release form.   Please email our registrar, Cat at   for your release.  


If you have any questions, please email  . We cannot wait to see you all soon!
