R.I.S.E. Academy Hockey Tournament and Summit

April 21, 22 & 23, 2023

Carleton University Ice House

Last year R.I.S.E. held its first Hockey Tournament with the theme of inclusivity.  We had the opportunity to have 65 youth and their parents engage in great hockey and meaningful conversation about the need for change in the sport that we love.  This year we are growing the event into a three day tournament with the goal of attracting 24 teams, approximately 400 youth and their parents as well as hosting a 1 day summit focused on making hockey more inclusive for all.  During the one day summit many stakeholders will come together that include players, parents, coaches, hockey executives, and the community where they will engage in hockey, fun, dialogue and a Call to Action.


Given hockey’s 2017 Declaration of Principles, the current and ongoing issues of maltreatment by players, coaches as well as spectators, and the long overdue need for positive culture change for the survival of the sport, the theme for the Hockey Summit is “Changing The Hockey Culture: The Challenge And The Opportunity”.


Through the Hockey Summit, the R.I.S.E. Academy seeks to:

  • Engage attendees in the difficult conversations about the culture of hockey and issues of maltreatment in all their forms (e.g. abuse, bias, harassment, racism, etc.).
  • Explore, debate and share insights on creating a safer, more inclusive, positive and welcoming hockey environment for all.
  • Encourage attendees to be advocates and champions for culture change in their hockey organizations.
  • Recognize and honour individuals, groups or organizations for their efforts and initiatives to (a) make hockey accessible to racialized and marginalized youth, and (b) promote and advance positive changes in hockey’s policies, practices, programs and services.
