Code of Conduct

The Collingwood Minor Hockey Association and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association identifies the standard of behaviour which is expected of all Collingwood Minor Hockey members and participants, which for the purpose of the policy shall include all players, parents, coaches, officials, volunteers, directors, officers, committee members, conveners, team managers, trainers, administrators and employees involved in any and all of Collingwood Minor Hockey Association and Ontario Minor Hockey Association activities and events.

The Collingwood Minor Hockey Association and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association is committed to providing an environment in which all individuals are treated with courtesy and respect. Members and participants of the Collingwood Minor Hockey Association shall conduct themselves at all times in a manner consistent with the values of the Collingwood Minor Hockey Association and the OMHA, which includes fairness, integrity and mutual respect.

Collingwood Minor Hockey members and participants shall at all times adhere to the CMHA and the OMHA’s operational policies and procedures, rules and regulations governing all CMHA and OMHA events and activities and rules and regulations governing any competitions in which any member of the CMHA participates.

Members and participants of the Collingwood Minor Hockey Association shall not engage in any activity or behaviour, which interferes with a competition or with any player or team’s preparation for a competition or which endangers the safety of others.

Members of CMHA shall refrain from comments or behaviours, which are disrespectful, offensive, abusive, racist or sexist. In particular, behaviour, which constitutes harassment or abuse, will not be tolerated and will be dealt with under the Ontario Minor Hockey Association Harassment and Abuse Policy.

Failure to comply with this Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the Discipline Policy of the OMHA. Such action may result in the member losing all privileges which come with membership in the Collingwood Minor Hockey Association, Ontario Minor Hockey Association, Canadian Hockey Association, and Ontario Hockey Federation including the opportunity to participate in Collingwood Minor Hockey Association or Ontario Minor Hockey Association activities and events, both present and future.
Conduct & Discipline Policy

Membership in the CMHA, as well as participation in the activities of the CMHA, brings with it many benefits and privileges. At the same time members and participants are expected to fulfill certain responsibilities and obligations, including but not limited to complying with the Code of Conduct, Policies, Regulations and Rules of the CMHA.

The CMHA Code of Conduct and the Rules and Regulations of Competition identify the standard of conduct, which is expected of members, and other persons involved in CMHA activities and events. Individuals who fail to meet this standard may be subject to the disciplinary sanctions identified within this policy.

This policy applies to all members of the CMHA, as well as to all individuals participating in activities, including but not limited to players, parents, coaches, officials, volunteers, directors, officers, convenors, committee members, team managers, trainers and administrators.

This policy applies to discipline matters, which may arise during the course of all CMHA business, activities and events, including but not limited to competitions (including exhibition games), practices, training camps, meetings and travel associated with these activities.

Under this policy, there shall be three types of infractions, which may warrant discipline:

   1. Technical infractions - these are violations of the Regulations and Rules of Competition of the OMHA, which shall result in automatic sanctions as specified in the OMHA Operations Manual.
   2. Minor infractions - these are infractions under the CMHA Code of Conduct which are not severe but which may warrant immediate corrective action as specified in this Policy.  See Appendix A at bottom of page.
   3. Major infractions - these are infractions under the CMHA Code of Conduct, which are more severe and may warrant disciplinary action as specified in this Policy.  See Appendix A at bottom of page.

Disciplinary situations involving minor infractions occurring within the jurisdiction of the CMHA will be dealt with by the appropriate person having authority over the situation and the individual involved (this person may include, but is not restricted to, executive or committee member, Convenor, tournament chairperson, official, coach, team manager, team captain).

Procedures for dealing with minor infractions shall be informal as compared to those for major infractions and shall be determined at the discretion of the person responsible for discipline of such infractions, provided the individual being disciplined is told the nature of the infraction and has an opportunity to provide information concerning the incident.

All disciplinary action shall be documented on the Progressive Discipline Report and sent to the Discipline chair within 7 days. All documentation may be used at a later date, as supporting evidence should there be reoccurrence of a similar violation.  See Appendix B - Progressive Discipline Report.

The following disciplinary sanctions may be applied, singly or in combination, for minor infractions:

   1. Verbal reprimands
   2. Written reprimand to be sent to the individual
   3. Verbal apology by the individual
   4. Written apology by the individual
   5. Termination of Team service or other voluntary contribution to the team, the minor hockey organization or to the CMHA
   6. Suspension from the current competition and/or for a specified number of games, other sanctions as may be considered appropriate for the offence.

Note:  All Suspensions must be approved at the discretion of the Discipline Committee.

Upon receipt of a Progressive Discipline Report, the Discipline Committee shall determine if the incident is better dealt with as a major infraction, or if a hearing is required to address the incident as a major infraction.

If the incident is to be dealt with as a major infraction and a hearing is required, the alleged offender shall be notified as quickly as possible as and in any event no later than 7 days from date of receipt of the Progressive Discipline Report, and shall be advised of the procedures outlined in this Policy.

If the Discipline Committee of the CMHA decides that the infraction be dealt with by means of a hearing, he or she shall have a Panel consisting of not less than 3 other executive members.

The Discipline Panel shall hold the hearing as soon as possible, but not more than 14 days after the Progressive Discipline report are first received by the Discipline Chair.  The Panel may decide to conduct the hearing in person or by telephone.

The Panel shall govern the hearing by such procedures as it may decide, provided that:

   1. The person alleged to have committed an infraction should be given written notice (by courier registered mail) of the day, time and place of the hearing.
   2. The Panel may request that witnesses to the infraction be present or submit written evidence.

If at any point in the proceedings, the Alleged becomes reluctant to continue it shall be at the sole discretion of the Discipline Committee to continue the review of the infraction in accordance with this policy.

After reviewing and deciding the infraction matter, the Panel shall present its findings in a written report to the President of the CMHA, with a copy provided to the Alleged. This report shall contain:

   1. A summary of the relevant facts
   2. A determination as to whether the acts complained of constitute an infraction as defended in this policy
   3. Disciplinary action to be taken, if the acts constitute an infraction.

When directing appropriate disciplinary sanction, the Disciplinary Committee shall consider factors such as:

   1. The nature and security of the infraction
   2. Whether the infraction involved any physical contact
   3. Whether the infraction was an isolated incident or part of an ongoing pattern
   4. The nature of the relationship between the parties involved
   5. The age of the Complainant
   6. Whether the alleged had been involved in previous infractions of similar nature
   7. Whether the alleged admitted responsibility and expressed a willingness to change

Failure to comply with a sanction as determined by the panel shall result in further disciplinary action up to and including legal action if required.

Where the individual acknowledges the facts of the incident, he or she may waive the hearing, in which case the Disciplinary Committee shall determine the appropriate disciplinary sanction. The Disciplinary Committee may hold a hearing for the purpose of determining an appropriate sanction.

If the individual being disciplined chooses not to participate in the hearing, the hearing shall nonetheless proceed.

The Disciplinary Committee may apply the following disciplinary sanctions singly or in combination, for major infractions:

   1. Written reprimand to be placed in individual's file
   2. Written apology by the individual
   3. Suspension from certain CMHA events, which may include suspension from the current game or competition or from future competitions

   5. Suspension from all CMHA activities for a designated period of time
   6. Expulsion from the CMHA

The preceding sanctions may be modified, or added to, as required by the provisions of any other pertinent CMHA Policy, such as those dealing with harassment, doping, personnel or event-specific matters.

Unless the Discipline Committee decides otherwise, any disciplinary sanctions shall commence immediately.

In applying sanctions, the Disciplinary Committee may have regard to the following aggravating or mitigating circumstances:

   1. The nature and severity of the offence
   2. Whether the incident is a first offence or has occurred repeatedly
   3. The individual's acknowledgment of responsibility
   4. The individual's extent of remorse
   5. The age, maturity or experience of the individual
   6. The individual's prospects for rehabilitation

Notwithstanding the procedures set out in this Policy, any member or participant of the CMHA who is convicted of a criminal offence involving sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference or sexual assault, shall face automatic suspension from participating in any activities of the CMHA for a period of time corresponding to the length of the criminal sentence imposed by the Court, and may face further disciplinary action by the CMHA in accordance with this Policy.

Any member of the CMHA, coach, trainer, manager or player who deliberately damages or defaces facilities used by or equipment of the CMHA shall be suspended from the CMHA until the cost of repair or replacement of the damaged equipment has been paid in full.

In addition to the suspension and the payment of damages, the offending individual may be subject to further disciplinary action and/or suspension at the discretion of the Discipline committee of the CMHA.

The use of alcohol or drugs at any CMHA sponsored function or in any arena or other facility used for such function, by any coach, trainer, manager, official or player affiliated with the CMHA will not be tolerated and may lead to suspension without refund (where applicable), for the balance of the season.

Any CMHA board member, who deems disciplinary action to be necessary against an individual for any reason, must institute the use of Progressive Discipline Report. Any Coach, who deems disciplinary action to be necessary against an individual for any reason, must institute the use of Progressive Discipline Report up to but not inclusive of suspensions. A coach may make a recommendation for suspension although must be approved by the Discipline Committee.

See Appendix B - Progressive Discipline Report

Such forms are to be sent to the current Vice President within 48 hours. The Vice President has the responsibility to ensure that a copy is also sent to the Discipline Committee within 7 days.

All league Vice Presidents are responsible to ensure that all OMHA issued suspensions are reported directly to the Discipline Committee within 48 hours. If it is found that any CMHA player has received an excessive amount of suspensions the player’s eligibility to play within the CMHA will be reviewed by the Discipline committee.

If a CMHA board member decides that circumstances warrant immediate suspension (disciplinary problem of a violent nature or drug/alcohol nature) the suspension may be immediate but must be brought to the Discipline Committee within 48 hours of the incident. A discipline committee meeting must take place with 7 days of the immediate suspension. Further progressive discipline may be administered at the discretion of the discipline committee.

Any player who wilfully plays or any coach or manager who allows a player to play, who is found to be ineligible shall be subject to progressive discipline up to and including suspension.

Any player, coach, trainer or manager who is suspended by the OMHA and/or under CMHA rules may, at the discretion of the Discipline Committee have their suspension reviewed for further action.

Any player receiving 3 suspensions through the use of the Progressive Discipline Report will be required to meet with the Discipline committee prior to being allowed to continue play within the CMHA organization.

Situations arising during the season that are not covered under the disciplinary policies will be referred to the discipline committee for their ruling. 

Equipment

Mouth guards are mandatory as outlined by OMHA. All players participating in an OMHA game or practice shall at all times while engaged in play or practice, practice drills or scrimmages on the ice surface wear an intra-oral mouth guard that conforms to the specifications set out by the O.M.H.A as approved as suitable use.

All on-ice Coaches, Trainers, Assistant Coach, Assistant Trainer or Volunteers will be required to wear C.S.A. approved helmets during all on-ice activities.

Such forms are to be obtained from and returned to the current Vice President. A copy of the form will also be sent to the Discipline Committee within 7 days.

Any player receiving 3 suspensions through the use of the Progressive Discipline Report will be required to meet with the Discipline Committee prior to being allowed to continue play within the CMHA organization.

Harassment & Abuse

Behaviour, which constitutes harassment or abuse, will not be tolerated and will be dealt with under the Ontario Minor Hockey Association Harassment and Abuse Policy.

Refer to the OMHA Manual of Operations for the latest revision.

The Collingwood Minor Hockey Association (CMHA) is committed to providing a sport and work environment, which promotes equal opportunities and prohibits discriminatory practices.

Behaviour, which constitutes harassment or abuse outside of the guidelines of the OMHA, will be administered by the CMHA. The ice rental agreement allows the CMHA governance during the rental period. The CMHA Discipline committee, at its discretion may suspend the privileges of any person in attendance of a CMHA function found to have harassed or abused any of its members. This includes CMHA board members, Coaches, Trainers, Managers, Team Officials, Players, Spectators and Arena employees.

NOTE: For convenience, this policy uses the term "Complainant" to refer to the person who experiences harassment, even though not all persons who experience harassment will make a formal complaint. The term "Respondent" refers to the person against whom a complaint is made.

Harassment is a form of discrimination. Harassment is prohibited by human rights legislation in each province of Canada. In its most extreme forms, harassment can be an offence under Canada's Criminal Code.

This policy applies to all categories of members in the CMHA, as well as to all individuals participating in activities of the CMHA, including, but not limited to, players, officers, convenors, committee members, team managers, trainers and administrators.

This policy applies to harassment, which may occur during the course of all CMHA business, activities and events, including, but not limited to competitions, team practices, training camps, exhibitions, meetings and travel associated with these activities.

Harassment is defined as conduct, which is insulting, intimidating, humiliating, offensive or physically harmful. Types of behaviour which constitute harassment include, but are not limited to:

   1. Unwelcome jokes, innuendo or teasing about a person's looks, body, attire, age, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation
   2. Condescending, patronizing, threatening or punishing actions which undermine self-esteem or diminish performance
   3. Practical jokes, which cause awkwardness or embarrassment, endanger a person's safety or negatively affect performance
   4. Unwanted or unnecessary physical contact including touching, patting or pinching
   5. Any form of hazing
   6. Any form of physical assault or abuse
   7. Any sexual offence
   8. Behaviours such as those described above which are not directed towards individuals or groups but which have the effect of creating a negative or hostile environment

When any person in authority has a reasonable belief that in the course of CMHA business, activities or events a minor is being abused or neglected, he or she shall report this belief to Ontario Child Protection authorities or Police and shall advise the Discipline Committee of having made this report.

The CMHA shall take no further action until such time as the authorities and/or police have concluded their investigation.

The matter shall then be dealt with as a disciplinary matter pursuant to this policy, and the report of the investigation carried out by authorities may be used as evidence under these proceedings.

The CMHA recognizes the sensitive and serious nature of harassment and will strive to keep all matters relating to a complaint confidential. However, if required by law to disclose information, the CMHA will do so. This shall not preclude publication of the final outcome of any matter, where a sanction imposed under this policy includes publication.

A person who experiences harassment, any person who witnesses harassment, or any person who believes that harassment has occurred is encouraged to make it known that the behaviour is unwelcome, offensive and contrary to the values of the CMHA and this policy.

If confronting the harasser is not possible, or if after confronting the harasser the harassment continues, the matter should be reported to an official of the CMHA. For the purposes of this policy, an "official" may be a member of the CMHA Executive Board.

Once an incident is reported, the role of the official is to serve in a neutral, unbiased capacity in receiving the report of the incident, advising the parents/guardians of the incident (if the person who has experienced the harassment is a minor), and assisting in an informal resolution of the complaint, where this is appropriate.

A report form titled “Harassment and Abuse Disclosure Report” should be filled out and sent to the Discipline Committee within 7 days. The report will be filed accordingly and may be used, as supporting evidence should there be a reoccurrence of the same issue.

See Appendix C - Harassment and Abuse Disclosure Report

If the official considers that he or she is unable to act in this capacity, the complaint shall be referred to CMHA Discipline Committee.

If informal resolution of the complaint is not appropriate or possible, the person who has experienced or witnessed the harassment, or who believes that harassment has occurred, may make a formal written complaint to the CMHA Discipline Committee.

Within SEVEN days of receiving the written report, the Discipline Committee shall decide if the complaint should be dealt with directly, without a hearing, in which case he or she shall direct the appropriate response and the matter shall then be concluded, provided the person complained of is fully informed and is given an opportunity to respond to the complaint.

After a thorough internal investigation the local minor hockey organization has the power to discipline, sanction and/or suspend any team player, team official, and local executive member for contravention of the CMHA Code of Conduct. All sanctions and/or suspensions assessed by the local minor hockey organization will be reported to the OMHA Regional Executive Member.

This policy shall not prevent a person in authority from taking immediate, informal, corrective and appropriate disciplinary action in response to behaviour that, in his or her view, constitutes a minor instance of harassment.

Harassment complaints arising during competitions may be dealt with immediately, if necessary, by a CMHA representative in a position of authority, provided the individual being disciplined is told the nature of the infraction and has an opportunity to provide information concerning the incident. In such situations, sanctions shall be for the duration of the competition only. Further sanctions may be applied but only after review of the matter in accordance with this policy.

In the event that an alleged offence is so serious so as to possibly jeopardize the safety of others, the Executive Committee of the CMHA may immediately remove the alleged offender from CMHA activities, pending an investigation of the complaint in accordance with this policy.

If the Discipline Committee of the CMHA decides that the complaint shall be dealt with by means of a hearing, he or she shall have a Panel consisting of not less than 3 other executive members.

The Panel shall govern the hearing be such procedures as it may decide, provided that:

   1. The Complainant and Respondent shall be given written notice (by courier registered mail) of the day, time and place of the hearing:
   2. All parties shall receive a copy of the Investigation report
   3. Both the Complainant and Respondent shall be present at the hearing. They may however be scheduled to attend at different times. This will be at the discretion of the Discipline Panel
   4. The Panel may request that witnesses to the incident be present or submit written evidence which is certified by a notary of public.

If at any point in the proceedings, the Complainant becomes reluctant to continue it shall be at the sole discretion of the Discipline Committee to continue the review of the complaint in accordance with this policy.

After reviewing and deciding the harassment matter, the Panel shall present its findings in a written report to the President of the CMHA and the Disciplinary Committee. The Disciplinary Committee in turn will review the findings of the Panel and in turn issue a report to both the Complainant and the Respondent. This report shall contain:

   1. A summary of the relevant facts
   2. A determination as to whether the acts complained of constitute harassment as defended in this policy
   3. Disciplinary action to be taken, if the acts constitute harassment; and
   4. Measures to remedy or mitigate the harm or loss suffered by the Complainant, if the acts constitute harassment.

When directing appropriate disciplinary sanction, the Committee shall consider factors such as:

   1. The nature and security of the harassment
   2. Whether the harassment involved any physical contact
   3. Whether the harassment was an isolated incident or part of an ongoing pattern
   4. The nature of the relationship between the complainant and harasser
   5. The age of the Complainant
   6. Whether the harasser had been involved in previous harassment incidents
   7. Whether the harasser admitted responsibility and expressed a willingness to change
   8. Whether the harasser retaliated against the complainant

In directing disciplinary sanctions, the Committee may consider the following options, singly or in combination, depending on the nature and severity of the harassment:

   1. Verbal apology
   2. Written apology
   3. Letter of reprimand from the CMHA
   4. Referral to a Speak Out program
   5. Temporary suspension
   6. Any other sanction which the Panel may deem appropriate

Failure to comply with a sanction as determined by the panel shall result in further disciplinary action up to and including legal action if required.

Notwithstanding the procedures set out in this policy, any individual participating in CMHA business, activities or events who is convicted of a criminal offence involving sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference, sexual assault, shall face automatic suspension from participating in any activities of the CMHA for a period of time corresponding to the length of the criminal sentence imposed by the Court, and may face further disciplinary action by the CMHA in accordance with this policy.

Appeals Panel

If the President is satisfied that there are sufficient grounds for an appeal, within 14 days of having received the original notice of appeal he or she shall appoint an Appeals Panel (the ”Panel”) comprised of three individuals who shall have no significant relationship with the affected parties, shall have no significant involvement with the secession being appealed, and shall be free for any other actual or perceived bias or conflict. The Panel’s members shall select from themselves a chairperson.

Appeals Preliminary Conference

The Panel may determine that the circumstances of the dispute warrant a preliminary conference: The matters, which may be considered at a preliminary conference, include date and location of hearing, timelines for exchange of documents, format for the appeal, clarification of issues in dispute, any procedural matter, order and procedure of hearing, remedies being sought, identification of witnesses, and any other matter, which may assist in expediting the appeal proceedings.

The Panel may delegate to its Chairperson the authority to deal with these preliminary matters.

Procedure for the Appeal

The Panel shall govern the appeal by such procedures, as it deems appropriate, provided that:

   6. The Panel may direct that any other individual participate in the appeal
   7. In the event that one of the Panel's members is unable or unwilling to continue with the appeal, the matter will be concluded by the remaining two Panel members
   8. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, there shall be no communication between Panel members and the parties except in the presence of, or by copy to, the other parties

In order to keep costs to a reasonable level the Panel may conduct the appeal by means of a telephone conference call.

Appeal Decision

Within 7 days of concluding the appeal, the Panel shall issue its written decision, with reasons. In making its decision, the Panel shall have no greater authority than that of the original decision-maker. The Panel may decide:

   1. To void or confirm the decision being appealed;
   2. To vary the decision where it is found that an error occurred and such an error cannot be corrected by the original decision-maker for reasons, which include, but are not limited to, lack of clear procedure, lack of time, or lack of neutrality;
   3. To refer the matter back to the initial decision-maker for a new decision;
   4. To determine how costs of the appeal shall be allocated, if at all. A copy of this decision shall be provided to each of the parties and to the President.
