CAHA Screening Program
Note: This page addresses Background Screening only. For SafeSport
information, refer to the SafeSport Section of this Website.
A NEW CHANGE! Effective July 2019, all
successful screening applications will load directly into the USA Hockey
database. CAHA will no longer update the
compliance list or post it online. To check the status of a
screening, a member organization’s Registrar or Scheduler will be the
person who verifies a member’s screening status.
All coaches, on-ice officials and volunteers (over the age of 18) are
required to complete a background screening. The CAHA Screening Policy
can be accessed here:
