Submitted By Brett Bickerton on Wed 06 28, 17
WHMA as part of the OMHA supports 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 WMHA team for the upcoming season, you are required to complete the following training by July 31st.

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

We encourage all Team Officials to complete this training as soon as possible in order to meet the July 31st deadline so that teams can be rostered on time.

Background

The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) has announced the launch of a new training course for Team Officials, to support trans-inclusive hockey in Ontario, Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression Training. There are two modules which will educate Team Officials on this important topic.

  • Use a Supported Device - Mac/PC Desktop Computers only / No phones or iPads
  • Have the Required Software - Adobe Flash 10.3 or later and a modern web browser (Explorer, FireFox or Chrome)
