Training

One of the things that we work hard at is to provide a safe inclusive space for our children to develop their love of hockey.  We also want to make sure that they have a safe space off the ice as well.  As such we require everyone who will come in contact with the children to complete Safe Sport training.
We Play Hockey Too is committed to creating a culture that clearly advocates and provides for a safe environment in which our athletes compete and train. We believe this is paramount to the success of all our programs.
For the safety of our athletes, particularly our youth athletes.  Safe Sport at We Play Hockey Too strictly prohibits sexual misconduct and abuse, bullying, hazing, harassment, physical abuse, and emotional abuse in its activities or events. Our goal is to create a clear culture of awareness to protect the participants in hockey at all levels.
