Gender Identity and Expression Course
Effective this season all team officials (coaches, assistant coaches,
trainers and managers) will be required to complete the on line course
“Understanding Identity and Gender Expression and a Guide to the Dressing Room
Policy and Confidentiality Statement”. Completion of this course is a
mandatory requirement in order to be approved on a roster for the 2017-2018
season. You will not be permitted on the ice
without this being completed. Given that this course is mandatory, we (GMHA) strongly urge team officials to complete this course now rather than waiting till September and finding out you can’t be on the ice.
This mandatory course is being implemented by Ontario Hockey Federation (of which the OMHA is a member), Hockey Eastern Ontario and Hockey Northwestern Ontario.
There are two modules and takes approximately 2 hours to complete, there is no fee for the course. Once completed, notification will be posted to one’s member profile on the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR). You must complete both modules to receive a course completion notice.
