Gender Diversity – Pre-Season Chats
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Thursday, August 9, 2018
Last season all team officials completed training, specific to “Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression” and A Guide to the Confidentiality Policy and Dressing Room Policy”. The OHF now wants this information to be passed on to the parents and players of our teams as we create a safe and inclusive environment for the coming season. To meet this requirement, the OHF requires the “pre-season chat” specific to Gender Diversity to take place at the beginning of each season. 

The OHF feels that it is critical that the “pre-season chat” take place at the outset of the season in order for everyone to be aware of the policy and will require the “pre-season chat” at the beginning of each subsequent hockey season.

View the OHF announcement.

View the Pre-Season Chat Checklist that will be used in providing this important information to the teams.
