ALHA Academic Honor Roll

ALHA Members,

If you get a chance please check out the ALHA Academic Honor Roll display case inside the Nystrom Arena.  Updated 2013-2014 ALHA Teams are listed with players who have been recognized for being on the High School or Southwest Honor Roll and for our younger skaters, for having strong academic/behaviour/attendance records.  Something to be celebrated is the fact that 87% of all of our ALHA Hockey Players have been recognized on our ALHA Academic Honor Roll!!!  This yet again reinforces the fact that we have fantastic student athletes participating in our hockey programs!  Congratulations to those hockey players for making the list and thank you to the parents and coaches that continue to reinforce the importance of academics along with athletics in our hockey association.  Have a great day!

Jason Fornwald


President ALHA

    Coaches ( Head & Assistant ), Team Mangers, Locker Room Monitors, Board Members Electronic Background Screening

    All Travel Team Coaches, Team Managers & Board Members must do a annual background screening. This is done online at the MN Hockey Website. Click on the link above to take you to the screening page. You will need a user name and password. If you have one for the Albert Lea Website you can use that.

    USA / MN Hockey Screening

    The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey.  This includes not only on-ice safety, but also off-ice safety in any part of Minnesota Hockey’s programs. The USA Hockey SafeSport Program is intended to protect all participants, not just players, from any type of misconduct or abuse.  

    By pulling together existing USAH off- ice safety policies related behavior and hockey environment management, constructing a supervision and monitoring structure, creating a reporting, investigatory, and response system, production of education and awareness training materials, and enhancing participant screening, USAH has taken giant steps towards improving off-ice safety.

    USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for abuse and misconduct. Through the USA Hockey SafeSport Program, USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey are committed to creating the safest possible environment for participation in hockey.

    An important part of our SafeSport program is the volunteer background screening, which Minnesota Hockey has had implemented for many years.  Minnesota Hockey & USA Hockey’s screening policy includes a set criteria for which a person may be disqualified and prohibited from serving as an employee or volunteer of Minnesota Hockey USA Hockey. Under the policy, Minnesota Hockey will not authorize or sanction any employee or volunteer who has routine access to children unless that person consents to be screened and passes a criminal background screen conducted by the Affiliate or USA Hockey.

    New for the 2013 – 2014 Season

    Minnesota Hockey is switching background screening providers and going to a new screening vendor. Instead on an annual screening, the new background screening will be good for two years. The new screening scans a wider range of local and national databases and is processed much quicker than our old system. We are confident this new program will better protect your children and provide a thorough check for all those submitting. 

    The following persons be screened in accordance with this policy:

    1. Members of the Minnesota Hockey Board of Directors

    2. Local Association / Club administrators and board members

    3. Coaches

    4. Team managers

    5. Officials

    6. Locker room monitors

    7. Travel chaperones

    8. Billet Families

    9. Anyone with routine access to youth participants
