New 2019 Concussion Management Program and Return to Play Forms

By USA Hockey, 03/15/19, 10:10AM MDT

 

Player safety is the top priority of USA Hockey. That’s why updates are being made to the Concussion Management Program and Return to Play forms for the 2019-20 season.

Kevin Margarucci, USA Hockey’s manager of player safety, answered questions about the changes, how they’ll be implemented, and how they’ll enhance the youth hockey experience.

Q: What's new with the Concussion Management Program?

A: Beginning with the 2019-20 season, any athlete held out for concussion evaluation or who has been diagnosed with a concussion must provide a written Return to Play form from a qualified medical provider allowing them to return to any training, practice or game activity with no restrictions. The parent must sign the form and the coach must also sign the form acknowledging that they received it.

Q: What do parents, coaches, managers and volunteers need to know about the Return to Play form?

A: The form will be available online in April for the new registration season, and it will be required starting with the 2019-20 playing season. The form can be printed and filled out, and then must be signed by a qualified medical provider. The parent and coach must then sign the form. It should be kept with the team coach or manager. We are working on a system where the forms can be filed with the district player safety coordinator and we can begin an injury database for concussion incidents. The data will be de-identified for privacy and HIPPA compliance. I should note that beginning with the 2019-20 season, a new volunteer position called Player Safety Coordinator will be implemented in each district (see more information here).

Q: Who counts as a qualified medical provider that can sign off on Return to Play?

A: That is defined differently in each state statute as it pertains to concussions. This is an area where the district player safety coordinators will work to clearly identify those health care professionals in each state who can legally clear a player to return after a concussion.

Q: Has USA Hockey been trending in the right direction with its emphasis on concussion prevention, management and return-to-play protocol? How will this be another step forward?

A: Our concussion management program has always been updated based on the latest research and recommendations. It also aligns with the 2017 Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport from the 5th International Conference on Concussion in Sport in Berlin. Many state statutes pertaining to concussions require written return to play. Some of our districts and affiliates already require written clearance for return to play. This latest update aligns all of USA Hockey with this written return to play requirement and provides a standard form for use by all.

Q: Is the culture surrounding concussions making progress in youth hockey?

A: I believe so. The awareness and recognition of concussions has grown by parents, coaches and players. The mantra, ‘When in doubt, sit them out’ is a guiding principle that has taken hold in our sport and something we will continue to reinforce. And a relatively new initiative through the Concussion Legacy Foundation that we’ve supported is called Team Up, Speak Up. It’s focus is to let players know it is OK to, and that they should, speak up for a teammate who may have a concussion and report to a coach, parent, doctor or athletic trainer.  It’s great to see the progress we’ve made, and together we will continue to affect positive change related to the overall safety of our game.

U8/Mite ADM 2019-20 PROGRAM INFORMATION

PDF FORMAT - CLICK HERE

2019-20 U8/ADM FALL/WINTER PROGRAM

ADM Program History and Principles:

USA Hockey launched the American Development Model (ADM) in 2009 providing a detailed blueprint for optimal athlete development.  By giving your child the ADM experience, you’re positioning them for long-term success.  It’s proven programming, built on qualitative and quantitative research from leading hockey nations, sports scientists, coaches and educators.  As the basis for youth hockey in the US, the ADM provides:

  1. Age-specific, age-appropriate skill development.
  2. An opportunity to efficiently learn and refine essential skills without an over-emphasis on winning games at the younger age classifications.
  3. A sensible practice-to-game ratio.
  4. High-performance practice and game programming that emphasizes skill development, competition, engagement and FUN.
  5. Structured training programs for coaches and qualified adult leadership.
  6. A philosophy that reduces burnout and disenchantment.

USA Hockey also has an ADM specific webpage and it can be accessed at www.admkids.com.

2019-20 Cincinnati Swords ADM Program Specifics:

Ellen Metz will continue her role as ADM Commissioner and Learn to Play Hockey Program Director.  Ellen comes with a strong hockey background, is a Level 4 certified coach and is also a preschool teacher.  She has worked with youth on and off the ice at all age levels from mites through high school. 

For the 2019-20 season, the Cincinnati Swords will again be emphasizing the USA Hockey ADM principles.  There will be a focus on skater development and FUNdamentals.  This is the time when a foundation is laid for future success.  Fun competitions will also be introduced through a team environment.

Our ADM sessions will run from the beginning of September through late February/early March and include an on-ice session for players to work on their skating skills, stickhandling, puck control and positioning.    Additionally, there will be weekly “team” practices on shared ice with another team.  We anticipate these sessions being held on Mondays and Fridays but will not be able to finalize until after the older team tryouts. 

NOTE:  New this season, we will kick off the season with a mandatory parent meeting on the first meeting date.  The kids will take the ice with the coaching staff while the parents met with the ADM commissioner.  We will take the first 3 weeks of the season (both Mondays and Fridays) to work with the players and get to know them.  We will not form teams until after these three weeks.  There will be a three-week schedule where we rotate the players and after we set teams, there will be a set schedule based on team placement.

Finally, we will have weekend sessions that will be a combination of practices and games.  All game sessions will be cross-ice pursuant to USA Hockey and MID-AM policies.  For these games, teams will have cross ice scrimmages with other local associations.  The season will cap off with an end of season tournament.  Teams will also receive an additional tournament event as part of their fees.

Financial Information

A final cost will not be available until after the evaluations but we anticipate it will be in line with last year’s fee of $995 if registered w/deposit by May 15, 2019.  Please be sure to review the refund policy which is posted on the website and also included in your registration.  Your fee includes:

14-16   60-minute half ice team sessions
14-16   90-minute full ice ADM sessions
8-10     weekend game/practice sessions
League Fee/League Tournament
Additional Tournament
Jersey w/Name & Number & Sock
End of Season Award
Administrative/Membership Fee

Registration for our Fall/Winter Programs will open on April 1 when USA Hockey makes the 2019-20 membership available.  To register, please go to www.swordshockey.com and click on Register Online on the left-hand side. 

We are very excited about the upcoming 2019-20 season.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Ellen Metz at or Jennie Tiemeyer at .

REGISTRATION OPEN: HIGH SCHOOL/MIDGET SPRING PROGRAM

SWORDS SPRING HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY TRAINING

The Cincinnati Swords are pleased to announce a newly-developed spring hockey program for our high school/midget aged skaters for the 2019 season.  Coach Drach will again be running our program and has expanded it to two sessions.  He and his coach staff plan to offer a weekday skills session that will focus on individual skill development and a weekend session broken up into 3v3 scrimmages.  Skaters will be divided into 6-8 squads of 7-8 players for scrimmages and each squad will have a jersey provided.  All sessions will be fast-paced and focus will be on making all players the best possible.

IMPORTANT DETAILS:

  1. Rising Freshman are allowed to register for the high school program even if their birth year is 2005. 
  2. Players will register for either the early or late weekday session and this will be done on a first-come basis.  Coaches do reserve the right to make adjustments based on skill level.
  3. Players will receive a Sunday schedule after we close registration so all squads will be scrimmaging each other and will rotate between the two sessions.
  4. We have added 2 sessions for a total of 12 instead of 10.  When we looked at the spring break calendars, we realized that most participants may miss at least 1 if not 2 sessions so we added a couple so the kids would not miss out.  We have NOT increased the fee to cover these additional sessions.
  5. Goalies have a separate registration as we reduce the price for goalies.  We will accept goalies on a first-come basis.  The fee for our goalies is $175 if registered by the early registration deadline and $225 thereafter.

TRAINING SCHEDULE:

Thursdays – USA Rink                                         Sundays – CAN Rink
7:00pm-8:15pm                                                  1:45pm-3pm
March 28, April 4 & 25, May 2 & 9                      March 24&31, April 7&28, May 5, 12&19

REGISTRATION DETAILS

Cost for participation is $300 if paid in full by 2/1/19.  After 2/1, the price is $375.  All players must have a current USA Hockey number.  To register, please go to www.swordshockey.com and click on “Register Online” on the left-hand side.  Placement priority will be based on order of registration.  You will be able to select either the 7pm or 8:15pm time slot.  All efforts will be made to honor player request but coaching staff may make adjustments based on skill levels.

2019 SPRING TRAINING – SQUIRT, PEEWEE AND BANTAM
 

PDF Format - Click HERE.

PDF Schedule - Click HERE

ALL U10, U12 & U14 SESSIONS ARE SOLD OUT!

Spring training will soon be underway and registration for 2019 is now open!  We will continue the program developed last year with its emphasis on tryout preparation including practice with the small area battle drill we added to last year’s tryouts.  The program will be split between individual skill development, small area battle drills and scrimmages.  Each head coach will be given a curriculum which includes skating skills, puck fundamentals, introductory and enhanced checking (age appropriate) and team play.  Activities will include stickhandling, passing, shooting and team concepts.  Small area battle drills and scrimmages will be used to reinforce the learned skills in a game environment.

NOTE:  We have added 2 sessions for a total of 12 instead of 10.  When we looked at the spring break calendars, we realized that most participants may miss at least 1 if not 2 sessions so we added a couple so the kids would not miss out.  We have NOT increased the fee to cover these additional sessions.

This year our tryouts will again include an additional on-ice session of small area battle drills for ALL skaters.  Battle drills may include 1v1, 2v2, 1v2, 2v1, dump&chase and puck control w/pressure scenarios.  These drills will be focused on during spring so our skaters are ready for the new session.

Our spring training will be held over six weeks.  The first three weeks (March 23-April 11) will be just prior to our 2019-20 team tryouts.  Coaches will be working with the skaters to get them ready for the week of tryouts that all players will attend.  Tryout drills will be practiced during the spring training program.  The last three weeks of spring training (April 23-May 11) will be geared to letting the kids showcase what they have learned with an emphasis on having fun.  We have worked hard to select quality coaches and put together a curriculum where every child can become a better hockey player.

 We are excited to offer a significant discount to those skaters that register early for our spring program.  Please be sure to read all the details so you don't miss out.

Program Format

Sessions will meet twice a week for 65 minutes on ice (one time during the week and one time on Saturday morning) beginning Saturday, March 23 and concluding Saturday, May 11.  There will be a week off for our 2019-20 tryouts.

Mite Eligibility

If your mite is a birth year 2010, they can register in our SQ session.  If your mite is a 2011 and you would like them to participate in the SQ program, please email Jennie Tiemeyer at .  She will reach out to your skater’s current coach and the spring coaching team.  If agreed to, Jennie will send you a link to register your skater.

High School/Midget
Please see separate announcement regarding our 2019 Spring High School program as our High School coaching staff has developed a new program.  Click HERE for details.

Checking Basics & Technique Clinic
We will run a checking clinic for our new BT skaters as part of the spring program.  There will be an on and off ice session and the BT sessions will have a strong checking component.  The checking clinic will be offered to all age-appropriate spring participants and is mandatory for first time Bantam players (2006) and any player 2005 birth year or older who is a first-time hockey player.  Goalie attendance is optional. The clinic provides an excellent environment for the players to transition into this important skill.  It is scheduled for Saturday, April 6 at Sports Plus (8am-9am Video in Fitness Center; 9:15am-10:45am on ice).

Goalie Price Reduction
Goalies have a separate registration as we reduce the price for goalies.  We will accept goalies on a first-come basis.  The fee for our goalies is $175 if registered by the early registration deadline and $225 thereafter.

TRI-STATE SPARTANS RETURN TO QCHA

For Immediate Release:

The Queen City Hockey Association (QCHA) is proud to announce the return of the Tri-State Spartans hockey program for the 2019-2020 season.  Last week, QCHA applied for the reinstatement of the Tier I Tri-State Spartans multi-city model program.  Furthermore, QCHA will contract with Total Package Hockey (TPH) to run the day to day operations as they previously did for four seasons starting in 2014-2015 when the program first started. 

“We are thrilled to once again work side-by-side with Total Package Hockey in bringing back the Spartans program,” Todd Adrien, President of QCHA said.  “In working alongside TPH, we have a hockey-operations partner committed to the process of developing players and advancing them to the next level.  We look forward to working together to grow the brands of QCHA and the Spartans program.”   

In announcing the return of the Spartans, QCHA is proud to continue its “Multi-City” approach to building competitive ‘AAA’ hockey teams, supporting players and their families from Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Dayton, Evansville, Lexington, Louisville and Butler County.  This approach will ensure playing opportunities at the Tier I level for individual families in the area, while assembling teams that can compete at the Tier I level. 

“This model is about creating high level playing opportunities for dedicated, driven, goal-oriented student-athletes who possess the character, work ethic and skill set to play at the ‘AAA’ level,” stated Chris Lipsett, who occupies many leadership positions for TPH, and will be the Director of Hockey Operations for the Tri-State Spartans.  “Our goal is to build a competitive program that readies our players for success at the next level.  Our belief is that if we focus on the individual and team development process, results, including player advancement will take care of itself.”

Advancement is something Total Package Hockey takes great pride in.  Though just 17 years old, 45 #TPHTrained student-athletes have been selected in the NHL draft.  280 have committed to the NCAA level, 189 of which are Division I.  In addition, 99 players have been selected in the OHL draft and 353 have signed tenders or been drafted in the USHL and NAHL.

Spartans Assistant Director of Hockey Operations Iain Fraser says the Spartans program will pick up where they left off by offering an elite schedule of Tier I Elite League events, along with scheduling relationships with top teams in the country.  All of this in an effort to allow players to live at or close to home and still have consistent access to top competition.

“While nothing trumps culture, coaching and the environment we foster with our Spartans teams, the competition we go up against can play an important role in the rate at which development occurs,” Fraser said.  “We will continue to build highly competitive schedules, utilizing our relationship with the Tier I Elite League, for our Spartans teams to take advantage of and develop.  Competition fuels development.”

The Spartans will be releasing more information about the return of the program over the next several weeks, including team and tryout announcements, coaching assignments and exciting program offerings.

2.  Complete Safe Sport training.  Completion will automatically attached to a managers'/volunteer's USAH number.

Safe Sport Did you know? On February 14, 2018, President Trump signed into law the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and SafeSport Authorization Act of 2017 (the “Act”).   The Act includes amendments to the Victims of Child Abuse Act of 1990 (“VCAA”) (34 U.S.C. §20341) and “Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act” (36 U.S.C. §220501 et. seq.).  Amended 34 U.S.C. §20341(c)(9), under the VCAA, includes the phrase “covered individual” to mean “an adult who is authorized, by a national governing body, a member of a national governing body, or an amateur sports organization that participates in interstate or international amateur athletic competition, to interact with a minor or amateur athlete at an amateur sports organization facility or at any event sanctioned by a national governing body, a member of a national governing body, or such an amateur sports organization.  Youth hockey coaches, managers and volunteers who interact with players fall within definition of “covered individual.  Pursuant to 34 U.S.C. §20341(a)(2), “a covered individual who learns of facts that give reason to suspect that a child has suffered an incident of child abuse, including sexual abuse, shall” report the abuse within twenty-four (24) hours to law enforcement.  Failure to report subjects a covered individual to a fine and imprisonment of up to one (1) year under 18 U.S.C. §2258.  Also, under the Act, the U.S. Center for SafeSport has been tasked with formulating SafeSport policies. 

Screening – Screening will continue to be required of any adult who has “access” to minor aged hockey players.  Screening must be accomplished prior to access to children and must be renewed every two (2) years pursuant to requirements of Safe Sport.  For current screening, to go: www.midamhockeyscreen.com and follow the prompts.  See website for additional information.
