Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program Presented By Tim Hortons


Chad Owens Huddle Up


Program Overview

The Toronto Argonauts’ Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program, presented by Tim Hortons, is an all encompassing opportunity for a school population to focus on the impact they can have on bullying and mental health in their environment. The program sees Toronto Argonauts players, cheerleaders, program staff and the Canadian Safe School Network working together to make schools safe. September 2015 will mark the 15th Anniversary of the Huddle Up Program, and its continued growth in popularity.

Designed for students in grades 3 to 12, Huddle Up sees Toronto Argonaut Players, Cheerleaders, and program staff, working together to powerfully support and covey our bullying prevention messages for targets, bystanders and bullies. The Huddle Up Bullying Prevention program is comprised of three core components:

  • Leadership Committee Meeting
  • Player Assembly
  • Student Committee Summit 


Optional Add-On Components:

  • Parent Information Night
  • Female Bullying Presentation
  • Additional Assembly (for large school populations)

Student Committe



“The Huddle Up Committee gave me the opportunity and courage to talk to other people that I grew to trust about my experience in bullying. Knowing that I had those friends and an amazing teacher leading it, gave me the courage to wake up every day and go to school. If it weren't for you bringing Huddle Up to my school, I don't know where I'd be today.”

 – Andrea, High School Student


“The powerful and very personal message from the Toronto Argonauts players left our students talking about how hurtful bullying can be… Great role models with a great message!”

– Elementary School Teacher, Gandatsetiagon P.S.


 “The Argo players, and as a result, the Argos organization as a whole, represent everything good we want to see in our youth- that hard work, team spirit, community commitment and respect are the values that make solid citizens.”

 – High School Teacher, Pope John II C.S.S.


“Kids need outlets to talk about their experiences, ask questions, help each other and for this reason I was thrilled that my daughter participated in the Huddle Up Program in her school this year. The program was a great experience for her as well as for us, as parents. Thank you!”

 –Chris and Zaven, parents
