Gender Diversity - Pre-Season Chats
Submitted By Web Admin on Saturday, September 01, 2018
Gender Diversity training was introduced for all coaches at the end of last season and is to be followed up this year with "pre-season chats". Both initiatives are at the direction of Egale - Canada Human Rights Trust.

The OHF requires the “pre-season chat” specific to Gender Diversity to take place at the beginning of each season. 

Detailed information regarding the Hamilton Huskies plan to implement this will be forwarded to all teams in the near future.

Gender Diversity - Pre-Season Chats
Submitted By ALLIANCE Hockey on Tuesday, August 07, 2018
Pre-Season Chats

Team Officials have completed the e-learning training, specific to “Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression” and A Guide to the Confidentiality Policy and Dressing Room Policy”. It is now important, and a requirement of the training that this information be passed on to the parents and players of all teams as we all work to create a safe and inclusive environment for the coming season.

The OHF requires the “pre-season chat” specific to Gender Diversity to take place at the beginning of each season. 

As various minor hockey associations, clubs and leagues begin their seasons at differing times each year, there is not one date that can be established across the province by which these discussions must occur.  However, it is critical that the “pre-season chat” take place at the outset of your season in order for everyone to be aware of the policy.

The “pre-season chat” will also be required at the beginning of each subsequent hockey season.

The following link will take you to the “pre-season chat” checklist to be used in providing this important information to the teams. (Pre-Season Chat Checklist)

The OHF expects that these steps are implemented into the existing procedures for teams at the beginning of each hockey season and will undertake a random audit to ensure compliance with this requirement.

Included are Gender Identity slides for Peewee and above and Atom and below.

The OHF thanks you for your continued assistance in creating a safe and inclusive environment.
