Gender Identity & Expression Training for Team Officials
As part of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA), Hespeler Minor Hockey supports the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) in their mission to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario. If you will be volunteering as a Team Official (coach, assistant coach, trainer or manager) with any HMHA team for the upcoming season, you are required to complete the following training.

Training will cover:

  • Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training for Team Officials
  • A Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement

Gender Identity & Expression Training is required for all Representative and Local League coaches, assistant coaches, trainers and managers.  We encourage all Team Officials to complete this training as soon as possible so that teams can be rostered on time.
