Child Abuse Registry Policy

In order to continue to take steps towards creating a safer atmosphere for our members, Hockey Manitoba updated our regulations during the 2021 – 2022 season to include mandatory Child Abuse Registry Checks. These checks are required for all registered Team Officials on a yearly basis.

Please refer to the following regulation:

Regulation N 6. b

Any person over the age of 18, who is Coach, Manager, Safety Person or Trainer of any team endorsed by Hockey Manitoba open to members under the age of 18 (including Minor, High School and Junior), shall be required to undergo a Child Abuse Registry check. Application for such must be submitted to the registering body (MHA, League, Team) prior to the individual being placed on the roster. It is the responsibility of the registering body to then submit the record check through the appropriate channels. In the event that an individual is rejected based on results found, they can appeal to Hockey Manitoba. An appeal committee will be formed and will review the appeal based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of record to position.
  • Efforts at Rehabilitation
  • When the infraction took place.
  • Proof of record.

Child Abuse Registry Checks must be renewed every year.
