Hello Players and Parents,
The Ontario Hockey Federation and Alliance Hockey have been mandated
to offer Gender Identity and Gender Expression training for all players and parents.
Last season coaches and administration staff received the training and this season the training is being rolled out to players and their parents.
We have set up several presentations to ensure that everyone is given an opportunity to participate in the training.
The presentations are set up to accommodate every player and one of their parents.
Every effort has been made to host these presentations on dates that teams are not otherwise occupied with games or practices. Please pick a date and time that works best for you.
PLEASE NOTE: there are two different presentations.
The 6:00pm presentations are for players who participate from IP-Atom and the 7:00pm presentations are for players who participate from Minor Peewee to Juvenile. Please pick the correct time.
Space is limited. You will be contacted directly if your preferred time slot is full.
Alliance Hockey requires us to submit an audit of players and parents who attend the presentation. You will be asked to sign in when you get to the presentation. Please ensure that you sign in.
The training session will be presented by Leanne Powell of the London-Middlesex Health Unit. Leanne Powell is a public health nurse working at the London-Middlesex Health Unit in the area of Sexual Health.
Leanne is actively involved with communities to help improve access and equity. Leanne has been involved with partnering with others, listening to community’s needs, developing resources for communities and health providers and has participated in research. She is committed to working with community partners to make positive changes for the LGBT2Q+ communities.
All presentations are at Fanshawe College. Parking is free. Please visit this link to register for a presentation.
