(*) The Bullying, Harassment and Abuse component that is included in the HTCP is a condensed version derived from the Speak Out program. This module discusses specific topics relating to the hockey trainer, however, it is not a substitute for the “Speak Out” program course. Please contact your Branch/Division for further information on Speak Out/Respect in Sport.
