Cyber Bullying? Zero Tolerance!
The OWHA and its member organizations, including Grand River Mustangs Girls Hockey Inc., have a zero tolerance policy toward cyber bullying and other forms of bullying. As the season begins, a reminder to all parents and volunteers that there are NO cell phones, or other devices with cameras, allowed in the dressing rooms at any time. Players are encouraged to leave their devices at home, or with a parent, when they arrive at the rink.

Any incidents of cyber bullying (as defined below) will be dealt with immediately, and can involve sanction of parents, coaches and parents by the Mustangs and/or the OWHA.

Let's all have a safe and happy season that keeps the focus on the ice!
