Steps to Register as an IFYHA Volunteer

1. Register as a Member of USA Hockey

You must register as a member of USA Hockey, the governing body for the Idaho Amateur Hockey Association (IAHA).  There is no charge for this registration; it does NOT allow on-ice participation.

2. Background Check

All adult coaches, officials, board members, employees, volunteers, and anyone else who will have regular contact with, or authority over, athletes under the age of 18 are required to submit to a background screen before any such contact with those athletes.

All new screens submitted through the new NCSI national screening program after April 1st, 2020, will be valid for two seasons.

The eight digit self registration ID number for USAH to initiate your screen is 35615801.

Cost is $30 for all domestic screenings.

3. SafeSport Training Through USA Hockey

The SafeSport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for one (1) season beginning on 4/1/20.

As of January 1st, 2018, all relevant individuals who need to be SafeSport certified or are seeking recertification will need to complete the new SafeSport training, which features updated content. 

Once you have completed the Core SafeSport course, there will be a refresher course available for individuals who have previously completed the Core SafeSport course and need to recertify.  Users completing the SafeSport Refresher course will be certified for one (1) additional season.

PLEASE NOTE that you will need your own USA Hockey Confirmation Number and your own email address to access the training.

There is no cost for the SafeSport Core or Refresher courses.
