Gender Identity and Gender Expression Chats

Last season Hockey Canada and the OHF rolled out Gender Identity training for all Bench staff and volunteers in Minor Hockey in Ontario.  This season the OHF has mandated Gender Identity and Gender Expression Chats be carried out to all Minor Hockey players and their parents.  Each team at DMHL will receive this Chat.  You can expect an email to be sent out indicating when this Chat will take place.  The goal is to have all these chats completed by Nov 16th.  The plan is to conduct these Chats before a House League game in the coming week.

For more information regarding these Chats, you can click on the following link: https://alliancehockey.com/Articles/4512/Gender_Diversity_-_Pre-Season_Chats/?ListPage=3


 RESPECT IN SPORTS FOR PARENTS

For those parents with players born in 2004 or later you need to complete the Parent Respect in Sports in order for your child to be eligible to play this season. Your child will not be able to go on the ice without it.   The program is accessed through the ALLIANCE Hockey website (www.alliancehockey.com), under the “PARENTS” tab. https://alliancehockeyparent.respectgroupinc.com/

 It is a one hour online curriculum with both audio and visual features that allows flexibility and does not have to be completed in one session.

 Is this required every year?   No, once you have completed it you are certified and there are currently no plans for requalification/recertification.

 My child was not born in a birth year above 2004 and is a registered player, am I still required to complete the Program?   Completion of the Parent Program is only required for parents/guardians of players at the 2004 birth year and younger who participate in a League.  

Porting My Profile from another Hockey Association to ALLIANCE Hockey: 
If you have previously completed the Respect in Sport Parent Program through another governing body, you may transfer (port) your certification and profile to the ALLIANCE Hockey Respect in Sport, data-base.

Click the link provided and follow the instructions provided.

  Cost:  

$12 per family (one parent/guardian certified per family and other parent, step parents, grandparents, kids, etc. can take the program for free by using the certified parent username and password). 

Payment is made on-line with a credit card at the time of registration.

Once this has been done once the certificate does not need to be done again.


 




Goalie Equipment
 
Each year Dofasco Minor Hockey has goalie equipment available to Goalies interested in playing this position for their teams.  We have sets available for Tyke, Novice, Atom and a limited amount for Peewee.  Tyke equipment is usually given to the coaches at the beginning of the season and each week different players can take their turn playing this position. 

Please contact Craig Stannix @ DMHL.president@gmail.com if  you know your son or daughter will require equipment this season.  We can make arrangements to get the equipment to you.  There is a $100 deposit required for any equipment being loaned out.
