The American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) has instituted an organizational sexual abuse and awareness polilcy and training to protect the players of the Washington Ice Dogs who are members of ASHA.

Each Washington Ice Dogs senior coach and team volunteer will be required to "sign" the policy as part of their annual registration renewal and take mandatory sexual awareness training through Protect Youth Sports (PYS)(www.protectyouthsports.com).

Please contact ASHA Registrar, John Murphy (WebAdmin@NJDD.net), or ASHA President, Mike Hickey (MHickey@SpecialHockey.org), if you have any questions about this policy and awareness training.
