Youth Teams Registered In Minor Hockey U9-U18
2022-2023 Registration is now Closed, Minor Hockey Coaches and Managers can register to have your teams placed on a waitlist, ranging from U9 to U18. To participate in the Orange Jersey Project. Each Team would receive a Welcome Kit that contains the jerseys and everything you need to inform, educate and engage young athletes, about the history of the Indian Residential School System. While quantities last. Once registration is full all teams unable to register will be placed on a waitlist for the following season. (Coaches and Managers to register only.)
The Orange Jersey Project uses the power of sport to educate young athletes about the history of the residential school system, strengthen the path toward truth and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and promote the physical and mental wellness of Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth through sport.
There will be a QR Code on each jersey that links to an online learning and sharing platform (referred to as the Learning Management System or LMS). The LMS for each sport will be tailored to that sport.
In the LMS, we will introduce Phyllis Webstad and include videos by Professional Indigenous Athletes sharing their experience with former Indian Residential Schools.
The LMS is an engaging environment for children to discover history of Indian Residential Schools. With the goal to encourage learning, engagement, sharing, and activities.

Coaches and Managers: Register Your Interest
If you would like to have your team participate in the Orange Jersey Project please complete the registration form.
Learning tools and resources will be provided by the Orange Shirt Society and thanks to our generous sponsors at Canadian Tire, this program is at no cost to teams.
Once your team receives the orange jersey package, we invite you to dedicate several practice meets throughout the season to wear the orange jerseys and spend a few minutes acknowledging the Treaty Lands upon which you are playing and the Indigenous Peoples who reside there. We also invite your team to participate in team-building activities off the ice to work through the curriculum together.
