Keeping all Thunderbirds safe is our top priority. This includes our players, parents, coaches, team staff and officials. Safety is not only dealing with physical injuries, including concussions, but also includes mental wellness and ensuring our dressing rooms, stands and Thunderbird gatherings are a safe haven.
If anyone witnesses a situation that is unsafe, or emotionally distressing to any of our members, it is essential that you follow the chain of communication to report it. We have to support each other and be leaders in our hockey communities of showing respect, watching for risk indicators, and being brave enough to speak out against any situation that is offside.
This section will be a focus over the coming months as we hope to be able to provide links and information on a cross section of the challenges faced by today's youth.
