The SGHA Dressing Room policy is based upon the Ontario Women's Hockey Association's Dressing Room Supervision Policy.
The Policy states that "When players under the age of 19 are in the team dressing room (pre-,during, post-practices and games) two properly screened adults associated with the team shall be in the dressing room." For SGHA's purposes, “Den Moms” (properly screened) are considered team officials.
SGHA is committed to providing an environment that is safe and respectful.
It is the policy of the SGHA that there be no harassment, abuse, bullying or misconduct of any participant in any of its programs either through physical or virtual means.
SGHA expects every athlete, coach, assistant coach, trainer, manager, official, parent, guardian, family member, director, officer, volunteer, and chaperone within the Association to take reasonable steps to safeguard the participants against harassment, abuse, bullying or misconduct.
We have a strict policy of not allowing players to bring phones into dressing rooms due to incidents of cyber-bullying.
Music requests and streaming of music in dressing rooms must be organized with Den Moms.
All injuries and concussions that require medical attention and/or medical clearance to Return to Play must be reported by emailing documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
