Anti Oppression Statement

The Burnaby Bears Field Hockey Club is committed to working with athletes, families, and the community to support physical literacy, sportsmanship, teamwork and resilience. We acknowledge that we live and play on the unceded and traditional territories of the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Coast Salish Nations. We strive to maintain an inclusive and empowering environment for all our members, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, class, sexuality, ability or age. We recognize that everyone has different experiences and backgrounds which shape their perspectives and welcome this diversity. In order to create a safe space that is inclusive to all, comments or actions that disparage others on the basis of any of the above are unacceptable.
