Mass Hockey has adopted new procedures regarding CORI background checks for every adult member of WYHA (both coaches and managers) who is in contact with our players. These changes are an effort on the part of Mass Hockey to follow State laws more closely and make the background check, which protects the youth hockey players of Massachusetts, more thorough and timely. The new process requires that all WYHA volunteers to:
