    Parent and Player Code of Conduct Form

    4.4 Parent Code of Conduct

    It is a policy of the HMHA to provide a safe and fun environment for children to play organized hockey.

    Let all participants play for the fun of the game and do not spoil your child or any other child’s fun.

    Encourage your child to play by the rules and to enjoy the game.

    Respect all players, coaches, opponents, game officials and spectators.

    HMHA enforces a zero tolerance policy towards situations of harassment or abuse directed against game officials, players, coaches or spectators using any of the following, but not limited to, methods of verbal, email, texting or social media.

    Recognize that every member of the HMHA is a volunteer. Help and encourage all volunteers whenever possible to allow them to work to the best of their ability.

    Recognize and applaud good play by your child as well as members of both teams.

    Do not embarrass your child by yelling at players, coaches, game officials or spectators.

    Your child will benefit when you show a positive attitude towards the game and all of its participants.

    Failure to comply with this code of conduct will result in disciplinary action as per 4.1 (a). 


    4.5 Player Code of Conduct

    I am participating in hockey because I want to, not because others including parents or coaches want me to play.

    I will play by the rules of hockey and in the spirit of the game.

    I will represent the HMHA and my community in a responsible manner.

    I will respect my teammates, opponents, game officials and spectators.

    I will do my best to be a true team player.

    I will remember that winning is not everything. Having fun, improving skills, making friends and doing my best are also important.

    I will remember that coaches and officials are there to help me. I will accept their decisions and always show them respect.

    I shall not email, text or use social media in a negative manner to express my opinion or concern rather than address them through my parent/legal guardian.

    Failure to comply with this code of conduct will result in disciplinary action as per 4.1 (a).


    4. CODES OF CONDUCT, DISCIPLINARY ACTION AND EXPULSION

    The essential elements of character-building and ethics in hockey are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship.

    The highest potential of the game of hockey is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character” and in an effort to achieve this potential, HMHA has developed and will enforce Codes of Conduct for every level of membership in the association.

    All Team Officials, Parents, Players and HMHA Board Members must sign an appropriate Code of Conduct at the start of each hockey season.

    The HMHA Board is adopting a ZERO tolerance policy and failure to adhere to these Codes of Conduct will result in appropriate disciplinary action at the discretion of the HMHA.


    4.1 Disciplinary Action

    a) Disciplinary action for Code of Conduct infractions will, as a general rule, follow a multi-tiered disciplinary approach, with the severity of the penalty increasing for each subsequent infraction. However, the HMHA Board reserves the right to impose a more severe penalty than the next subsequent tier in the process should the infraction warrant such a penalty.

    The penalties, in increasing order of severity are as follows:

    1st Infraction - Written warning
    2nd Infraction - Single game suspension
    3rd Infraction - Multi game suspension
    4th Infraction - Season long suspension (Pending fair hearing)
    5th Infraction - Removal from HMHA Membership (Pending fair hearing)

    b) All reports of Code of Conduct infractions must be submitted in writing to the Vice President and will be subject to the same process that is in place for handling complaints.

    4.2 Expulsion

    (a) HMHA reserves the right to reject membership in such a case where previous record of behavior unbecoming a member of the HMHA has been evident.

    (b) Membership may be revoked at any time to an individual who has been deemed by the Board of Directors to be in contravention of the Bylaw or Operating Procedures.

    Such action shall only result after a fair hearing, and a majority vote of the Board of Directors.
