REMINDER FROM BC HOCKEY - TWO DEEP RULE
Posted by CMHA Administrator on Nov 26 2013 at 03:58PM PST
Throughout the hockey season appropriate player supervision should be a priority for all minor hockey associations (MHAs) and BC Hockey member teams. As such, BC Hockey endorses the use of the “Two Deep Method” of supervision that is mentioned throughout Hockey Canada HCSP material and Hockey Canada coaching materials. This list describes the “Two Deep Method”. It is recommended that these guidelines are followed by all MHAs.
Players should be supervised at all times. A lone personnel member should never be in the dressing room with players at any time, and especially when they are showering or changing: two (2) adults should be present together; which is called the “Two Deep Method” of supervision. Please refer to the BC Hockey Co-ed Dressing Room Policy.
The safety person should avoid treating injuries out of sight of others. Use the “Two Deep Method” (two adults) supervision system.
Ideally, personnel and players should not share accommodations, regardless of the potential cost savings or other benefits. If sharing a room is unavoidable, be sure that the “Two Deep Method” rule is observed at all times. If only one player and one personnel are alone in the room for a brief period of time, the outer door must be left open.
Team personnel should avoid touching a player out of sight of others. Use the “Two Deep Method” (two personnel, or two players) supervision system
Parents/guardians should never leave their child unsupervised in a facility, nor should they leave their child alone with a single personnel member (use the Two Deep Method supervision system).
Sport and Training Facilities
Participants who are minors should never be left waiting in a facility without the supervision of their parent/guardian or personnel member (use the Two Deep Method).
Should you have any questions about the “Two Deep Method” please contact your Risk Manager
