OHF Introduces Two Deep Dressing Room Policy
Submitted By Webmaster on Monday, September 2, 2013

The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) is introducing a new policy intended to provide a safe and comfortable dressing room environment with proper supervision for the player and team officials.

The policy will be in effect beginning 2013-2014 season. 



 

Two Deep Dressing Room Policy:

 

It will be the Policy of the Ontario Hockey Federation that, when any player under the age of 19 is in the team dressing room(s) before, during and after a game or practice, a minimum of two of the following shall be present in the dressing room(s) or immediately outside the dressing room(s) with the door ajar: two team or club/association officials, properly screened or one such official and an adult person associated with the team.

In the situation of Juvenile or U21 hockey the coach may use an adult player over the age of 19 to be the second adult associated with the team.

Sanctions:

Any person found to be in violation of this policy will receive a warning for a first offence, a two week suspension for a second offence, and a one year suspension for a third offence.

Effective Date:

The policy will be in effect beginning 2013-2014 season.

The OHF is one of three Hockey Canada Branches operating in the Province of Ontario and is the largest of all thirteen across Canada. The OHF is comprised of seven Member Partners and has a membership base that represents over forty percent of Hockey Canada.
