Southwest Hockey strongly supports the inclusion of all members! Everyone plays an important role in making sure that all members feel welcome and safe in our hockey community.
IMPORTANT: Anyone who witnesses an act of abuse where they are fearful for their own safety and/or the safety of others; should use their judgement on whether or not to involve the police immediately. Where a serious threat persists, it is NOT appropriate to wait to go through the SW Hockey Game & Conduct Process. In these situations, when safe to do so, please notify the SW Hockey Administrator as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure that the Game & Conduct Communication Tree AND the Game & Conduct Policy is reviewed BEFORE filling out an Incident Form.
