The youth hockey team that was allegedly caught on video making anti-semitic remarks has reportedly been ordered to visit the Museum of Tolerance, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The team will also undergo eight hours of social media training, perform eight hours of community service through the museum and meet with a rabbi, according to Helene Elliot of the Times.

Fifteen members of the L.A. Jr. Kings hockey team and three coaches were suspended after a video emerged that reportedly showed the team making anti-semitic remarks such as “F-- the Jews” and “F——— Jews.” In the video, one player on the team reportedly made the Nazi salute. The team is comprised of 13- and 14-year-olds.

The incident was investigated by the California Amateur Hockey Association, which works with USA Hockey.

The Museum of Tolerance was opened to “promote tolerance and understanding,” according to its website. It was also created due to “the troubling discovery that a new generation of young people was beginning to question whether or not the Holocaust ever happened.”

Upon receiving the suspensions, the L.A. Jr. Kings released a statement saying they will work together to “educate and grow, and in this regard lead in action.”
