General update
Submitted By Tico Kock on Tue 09 21, 21
As our try-outs are winding down, we just wanted to provide you with an update on a few things that are happening over the next few weeks. The association has decided to purchase socks for all the players this year as we are in the midst of finding a new supplier. The exceptions would be U7 and U11 house league as they have socks provided by sponsors.  Please go onto our website and enter your information. The deadline is September 27th. After that, you will have to purchase socks.

We are also finalizing details of a virtual store that will be carrying all North Simcoe Apparel. We should have this information out in the next week. Finally parents and players, please read through the North Simcoe safety policy.

The policy touches on no males in the change room including coaches and the 2 deep rule. There is some wiggle room for players in U7 and U9. There is also information on cell phones in the dressing room. If you have a question, please reach out. 

1. The safety and comfort of girls playing in the NSGHA is a priority for the Association which starts in the dressing room. While the NSGHA allows some latitude at the U7/U9 level all other divisions should be following these rules:

a. No males allowed in the dressing room while the girls are changing. This includes members of the coaching staff.

b. Any device with picture taking capabilities is prohibited from being used in the Dressing Rooms.

c. A team mom and/or female trainer should be designated to monitor the dressing room at all times and not permit entry by males until girls are dressed.

d. Coaches may implement rules that allow them to enter the dressing room prior to a game once change room supervisors give the all clear. Late arrivals should change in the washroom but still must receive the green light to enter from the team mom or female trainer.

e. In accordance with the OWHA, NSGHA follows the ‘Two Deep Rule’. There must be at least 2 adult females in the dressing room at all times (for protection of the girls and parents) and these adults must ALWAYS be female.  These change room supervisors must have a current criminal reference check with vulnerable sector screening no file with the NSGHA (this includes U7 and U9).

f. Monitoring includes prohibiting the use of cell phones and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant).

g. The Head Coach is accountable for ensuring these rules are followed.
