IMPORTANT JTCC STATEMENT

August 15, 2018

Earlier this week JTCC was made aware of an offensive and racist video posted on social media by some of our players. JTCC has a zero tolerance policy towards behavior of this nature and as such, the players involved were immediately removed from the program.

Posting or speaking offensive and derogatory words degrades the people targeted and harms our learning environment. JTCC is a place of learning for everybody and plans to continue conducting both cultural sensitivity training and social media education sessions using experts in the field for all junior players during the 2018 – 2019 programming year.

If you have any questions or require further information please follow up directly with Vesa Ponkka (vponkka@jtcc.org).
