Field Hockey Canada believes that everyone in the sport has the right to enjoy the sport at whatever level they participate.
Conflict is inevitable and occurs naturally when people interact. Conflict can be positive. When two people disagree, it means they care enough to take a stand. Individuals and teams need conflict to grow and to generate new ideas. Conflict can be productive or non-productive, depending on how the issues are handled. Resolving a conflict at an early stage may prevent a situation from getting worse and may reduce the risk of it turning into a formal complaint.
