OHF Launches Transgender Inclusiveness Training for Team Officials

CAMBRIDGE, ON – The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) along with the Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO) and Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) are pleased to announce the launch of a new training module for team officials, to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression.

There are two modules which will educate team officials on this important topic. For team officials already assigned to a team, completion of these modules will be a required by October 1, 2017. For team officials named within a month of or afterOctober 1, they will have 30 days to complete both modules.

“The Ontario Hockey Federation is proud to be at the forefront of trans-inclusive sport and is glad to be working with Hockey Northwestern Ontario and Hockey Eastern Ontario through this process,” said Tony Foresi, OHF President.

This process started in 2013, when a complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario was filed against Hockey Canada alleging discrimination in services based on gender identity.

The e-modules will be available to team officials through the following link:

The OHF has been in existence since 1989 and is comprised of seven Member Partners: the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario (Alliance), the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL), Northern Ontario Hockey Association (NOHA), Ontario Hockey Association (OHA), the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA).

Memo

To: Alliance Hockey, GTHL, NOHA, OMHA
From: Phillip McKee - OHF Executive Director

Date: 7/13/2017

Re: Initiation Program Implementation
The Ontario Hockey Federation Board of Directors has been made aware some Minor Hockey Associations (MHAs) have not yet taken the appropriate steps to prepare for the mandatory introduction of cross-ice/half-ice for the Initiation Program (all hockey 6 years and under). This role-out is being mandated by Hockey Canada across all Branches.
The OHF and its Members are happy to act as support for MHAs still working toward the 2017-18 implementation. Please review the information provided on our website and contact either your Member or the OHF with any questions:
http://www.ohf.on.ca/view/ohfmainsite/initiation-program
The Initiation Program, and cross-ice/half-ice hockey specifically, is designed to introduce players to the game in a fun, safe, and positive way by creating an environment more suited to their physical capabilities at six-years-old and younger. The differences in skill-development opportunities with cross-ice or half-ice hockey are significant: players receive five times more passes and take six times more shots. They’re called on to have to make more decisions more quickly, and are overall more engaged in the game.
If a MHA is not compliant with the mandatory introduction of cross-ice/half-ice hockey for Initiation Programs, all Teams from that MHA, regardless of the age group, will be prohibited from participating in tournaments and the MHA will not be provided sanctioning to host tournaments at any age group. This was approved by the OHF Board of Directors, on June 24, 2017.
The OHF and its Members believe this sanction will not be required, as there are many support options out there to help MHAs transition into successful implementation. Additional resources are also available at: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/Hockey-Programs/Coaching/Initiation
