Our Mission is to provide the youth of the Greater Cincinnati Metropolitan Area, the highest quality youth sports program. The Association believes that participation in team sports can be an important ingredient in healthy youth maturation.
In an effort to provide a safe and fun environment for our participants and volunteers, Mid-American Hockey requires that all new volunteers, including coaches, referees team managers, board members, and on-ice volunteers, submit to a background screen before they have routine access to children who participate in our organization. As such, we have designed a very user-friendly process to help achieve this goal.
Please be aware that each individual will be responsible for a $30.00 fee to undergo this process for certification. NKYHA will reimburse all coaches once completed and they have meet the requirements set forth by the board have been met. The receipt MUST be emailed to
within 30 days of ordering the background check.
Thank you for assisting us in providing a safe and fun environment for all of our children and participants.
