Be a Safety Rep for the 2021-22 season

Each organization and team must assign an individual who will be the Safety Rep responsible for ensuring all updated and relevant information is effectively communicated across their respective organizations and/or teams. This person must be registered in the Hockey Canada Registry as a Volunteer.

Team Safety Rep responsibilities include:

  • Meeting with Team Participants and parents/guardians prior to the beginning of the season to walk through the details of the Game Plan 2.0 and the COVID-19 guidelines of all the applicable local facilities that will be used by the Team.
  • Receiving updates to health guidelines issued by the Ontario Government and/or local Public Health Units, updates to the Game Plan 2.0 and updates to facility guidelines from the Organization Safety Rep and communicating them to Team Participants and parents/guardians.
  • Ensuring the COVID-19 self-screening is conducted for each Team Participant before each sanctioned (on or off-ice) activity, including individual skill sessions, team practices, and games, while keeping records of this information. If multiple activities are being held during the same day, one health screening will suffice.
  • Completing the health screening registry electronically or in-person.
  • Completion of Criminal Record Check (CRC) and Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS), where required.
  • Completion of Hockey University: Planning a Safe Return to Hockey.
  • Completion of GTHL safety training run by Organization Safety Rep.

All Team Safety Reps must also complete the Hockey Canada: Planning a Safe Return to Hockey course. Click here to register.
