USA Hockey Rule on Helmets

USA Hockey Rule on Helmets

As we all know safety of our players is of the utmost importance.  Under USA Hockey regulation Rule 304(c) Protective Equipment - Enforcement Guidelines;  a note has been added relating to helmets that acknowledges the HECC sticker and the inclusion of an expiration date that de-certifies a helmet if that date has passed.  Older helmets have a date of certification (not an expiration date) Helmets have always been required to be HECC certified, but now they state that under normal wear and tear their certification is good for 6.5 years.  The rationale is that the protective qualities of the padding degrades over time.
Please be advised that you and/or your child should not remove the HECC sticker from their helmet as officials are looking for these stickers to be present.  There have been recent cases, not within our organization, where officials were checking for the presence of the HECC stickers on helmets, and may choose to remove a player from the ice.  Absence of a sticker does not disqualify a helmet, but does not help if a referee needs to make a determination.
Our District and Conference Representatives are working with SS Conference, Yankee Conference, District 3 and the Chief Referees to assure we have a mutual understanding of this ruling and the potential for our players to be disqualified from play.  Best practice moving forward is to assure the HECC sticker is in place on your child's helmet and that the expiration date has not passed.  Be sure to check your child's helmet for proper fit, and assure all components are in place (i.e. face mask, J-Clips, ear pieces, etc.).
