Trans and Gender Diverse Guidelines

Hockey Australia is committed to providing a safe, fun and inclusive environment for all people, including those of diverse sexualities and genders. Being an inclusive sport not only reflects our core values, it also reflects the diversity of our local communities.

Hockey Australia has a zero-tolerance to any form of bullying, harassment and/or vilification towards people with diverse sexualities and/or genders. This includes forms of homophobia, biphobia and/or transphobia.

We're passionate about helping people lead happy, healthy and active lives. Hockey Australia celebrates diversity of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, intersex status, ability, skill, cultural background, ethnicity, location, religious or political beliefs or life stage and welcomes everyone, exactly as they are.

The Hockey Australia Guidelines for the Inclusion of Transgender and Gender Diverse People in Community Hockey applies to all community hockey. Identified Pathway & High Performance Programs may require more specific or detailed regulations.
