TO: BC Hockey Membership
FROM: Barry Petrachenko Chief Executive Officer
SUBJECT: Conduct Policy 4.06 Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco and Illegal Activity

With the legalization of cannabis in Canada, it is important for BC Hockey members to note that this new legislation has no effect on the current BC Hockey Policy.

Competitions within Hockey Canada continue to comply with the guidelines of the Canadian AntiDoping Program (CADP) implemented by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Currently, the CADP lists cannabis as a banned substance.

Below is the BC Hockey Conduct Policy 4.06 which addresses this matter:
4.06 ALCOHOL, DRUGS, TOBACCO AND ILLEGAL ACTIVITY Hockey is a healthy sport where we have a responsibility to the players, participants and the community to demonstrate and encourage healthy choices.

BC Hockey prohibits the use of tobacco, cannabis, alcohol, drugs and banned / restricted substances during BC Hockey sanctioned events as outlined in this policy. BC Hockey is sincere in their duty to uphold the societal law in which members operate regarding illegal activities. For policy regarding performance enhancing products please see section 4.06.06.

Incidents are to be dealt with on an individual basis. Member associations, leagues and teams are required to establish policies and procedures to deal with the consequences of non-compliance by their members.

Photo Night Shedule & Information

Posted by Oceanside MHA at Sep 28, 2018 8:29PM PDT

Team Photo Night – October 17th, 2018

Team photo night will be held on October 17th in the lobby of Oceanside Place. Please be on time as there are 24 groups having photos done and, unfortunately, we are not able to wait for late players. There are no retake nights for photos.

Dressing room access will only be available to the teams practicing on those nights so please come dressed in your full gear. No skates or neck protectors are required (neck protectors attached to base layers can be tucked under). Green tape on sticks is also discouraged as the photographer uses a green screen for the background.

Each player will get an envelope order form from their team manager. Before you arrive for photo night, please fill out the top portion regardless of whether you are ordering additional photos or not. These envelopes are used by the photographer to keep everyone organized and correctly identified. Please bring this envelope with you to photo night.

Each team player will get a team photo as well as an individual photo that is included with your registration. For additional photos and payment, please complete the bottom section of the form on the envelope.

Please see attached schedule for your time.
