FAIR PLAY CODE
I will not force my child to participate in hockey.
I will remember that my child plays hockey for his or her enjoyment, not mine.
I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflict without resorting to hostility or violence.
I will teach my child that doing one’s best is as important as winning so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of the game.
I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and hard. I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game.
I will remember that children learn by example. I will applaud good plays and performances by both my child’s team and their opponents.
I will never question the official’s judgment or honesty in public. I recognize officials are being developed in the same manner as players.
I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s hockey games.
I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteers who give their time to hockey for my child.
