What Is The Safety Trainer Program?
The Hockey Canada Safety trainer program is a development initiative of Hockey Canada and is a volunteer hockey program. The emphasis of this program is on injury prevention and safety through risk management and education.
The Hockey Canada Safety trainer program improves the game by providing an organized, easy-to-access education program for hockey safety and injury-prevention volunteers. The program provides participants with information they need to promote and implement improved safety, risk management and injury-prevention practices in hockey. Today, Hockey Canada has adopted the safety program as a mandatory program to show its commitment to improving the safety and enjoyment of the game.
The program is available to any person who is interested in being a safety person on their team. The three-hour program is a simple approach to safety and injury prevention.
The Safety Trainer Program clinic is a 3 hour online clinic offered through the Hockey University. There is no longer an in person Safety Trainer clinic.
