The Hockey Canada policy currently defines hazing as “an initiation practice that may humiliate, demean, degrade, or disgrace a person regardless of location or consent of the participant(s)”. Regulation reads as follows:
A player, team official, executive member, team, club, association, or any other Hockey Canada Registered Participant found, by an investigative process, to have condoned, initiated or, to the detriment of another, participated in hazing actions or behaviors shall be subject to discipline up to and including expulsion from Hockey Canada registered programs.
Discipline must relate to the degrees of severity of the incident(s).
i. Any party failing to cooperate with the fact-finding process may be subject to suspension as determined by the Branch.
ii. All discipline decisions related to hazing must be approved by the Branch.
iii. All hazing matters involving Hockey Saskatchewan High Performance programs will be dealt with by the Hockey Saskatchewan Chair of Discipline.RETURN TO HANDBOOK LISTING
