The following principles inform the Oakville Hornets approach to operating through COVID-19.

1. Protection of Athletes – Proactive protection of athletes and their family/household members is the primary goal of this document and the safety measures the Oakville Hornets are taking.

2. Prioritization of Safety – In the context of COVID-19, safety is prioritized over the Oakville Hornets typical procedures (e.g., attendance) given the particular risks engaging in sports can pose.

3. Shared Responsibility – By coming together, we are choosing to have a shared responsibility for each other’s health and well-being in this space. We want to help athletes/staff protect themselves, and know that they have a responsibility to protect each other, as does the Oakville Hornets as an organization have a responsibility to protect its’ athletes/staff. Therefore, the Oakville Hornets will require certain protective measures to ensure that we are minimizing as many risks as possible to keep each other safe.

4. Nimble and Agile Approach – The Oakville Hornets are open and willing to adapt to what is/isn’t working, and respond to a changing situation as per public health guidance.

5. Respect and Understanding– All athletes/staff have different experiences, risk factors, levels of vulnerability of themselves and those around them, as well as different personal reactions to the pandemic. Athletes and the Oakville Hornets Girls Hockey Association should approach these differences with respect and understanding. Further, athletes/staff should not feel any judgement or stigmatization related to a positive diagnosis.

6. Well-Being – The Oakville Hornets are here because playing hockey and coming together positively contribute to our well-being. We want to balance the benefits this brings to our mental and social well-being with the risks presented by the pandemic. Oakville Hornets Girls Hockey Association
