Permission to Use Photograph

Registration implies consent for the Canadettes and its representatives to take photographs of the player in connection with hockey and to use such photos in print or electronically, unless communicated otherwise to [email protected].

Dressing Room Policy

The following is the dressing room policy, as per the OWHA, approved by the Brampton Canadettes Girls Hockey Association Board of Directors for all BCGHA teams aged Atom (U11) and above.

This policy has been adopted to make the arena a safe, secure and comfortable place for all the girls participating in the Association, as directed by our governing body, the OWHA.

1. Dressing rooms will be off-limits to all males, while any players are changing into or out of hockey equipment before or after a game. In application, this means that any equipment adjustment required to be done by a male, such as, but not limited to, skate tying, will be done outside the dressing room.

2. A minimum of one adult female must be present in the dressing room at all times during which players are in the room. Preferably this individual will be the registered team trainer, however, in her absence she may designate another suitable adult female as a Den Mom. This individual should remain in the dressing room until the trainer returns or another designate is appointed.

3. Male coaches will be admitted to the dressing room 10 minutes prior to official game or practice times to conduct pre-event talks and for up to 10 minutes after the game or practice is completed and players have left the ice, to conduct post-event discussions. During these two periods, a minimum of one adult female should be present in the dressing room as per the above.

4. In the event that a player arrives in the dressing room during the 10-minute pre-game period, she is not to commence dressing until all male coaches have left the room for the start of the game or practice.

5. In the event that a player is still in the process of dressing when the 10-minute period is to commence, that player will be requested by the trainer or her designate to stop changing, to don suitable covering clothing and not continue to change until all male coaches have left the room for the start of the game or practice.

6. The only exception to the above will be in the event of a medical emergency as determined by and at the sole discretion of a qualified trainer or medical practitioner.

7. The use of cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDA’s) or other image-taking devices is prohibited in all dressing rooms except when being used to deal with a medical emergency as determined by and at the sole discretion of a qualified trainer or medical practitioner.

8. Team Trainers are responsible for enforcement of the Dressing Room Policy.

9. Individuals violating the Dressing Room Policy will be subject to a Disciplinary Hearing. The Disciplinary Committee may, at its discretion:
A. Ban the violator from the players’ area of all arenas; and/or

B. Assess additional penalties up to and including permanent suspension from the Association.

Cell Phone Policy

With the advancement of certain technology allowing cell phones and personal digital assistants the capability to offer functions such as cameras that allow users the opportunity to secretly photograph or videotape objects in front of them while appearing to dial a number has raised significant concern.

The potential exists for inappropriate behaviour of camera phone users photographing others undressing and showering in the dressing rooms.

The potential danger of violating an individual's privacy will not be tolerated by the BCGHA; and therefore, the following policy has been implemented:  The use of any form of camera, video camera, camera phone, or any other personal digital accessory capable of photographs or video is strictly prohibited in any recreational facility change rooms during any BCGHA sanctioned event.

To ensure participant safety the BCGHA has also implemented the following policy:  The use of a cell phone/personal digital assistant on the players bench by any individual is strictly prohibited during and BCGHA sanctioned event.

In the event an individual is required to take a phone call, they should remove themselves from the bench area until they have finished their business provided there are other team officials remaining on the bench.  Exceptions will be made for on-ice medical emergencies where a cell phone is required to cal 9-1-1.

Fair Information Practices

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will notify the users via email within 7 business days of becoming aware of any breach of privacy.
