Westfort Hockey Association Code of Conduct
Dear, coaching staff, parents/guardians and players,

The Westfort Hockey Association is committed to providing a safe and fun environment for all minor hockey players by emphasizing sportsmanship, teamwork, fair play, and respect both on and off the ice. Our aim is to not only develop athletes, but to support players by instilling upon them these values. As members of this association and fans of the game, we must recognize that positive participation and involvement will take priority over the score every time. Members, players, and referees are vital stakeholders in maintaining that these values are sustained before, during and after the game.

The Westfort Hockey Association Board of Directors would like to remind all members of the conduct expected of you while attending sanctioned events and representing the Westfort Hockey Association. Moving forward any conduct by a member that is deemed as unsafe, inappropriate or tarnishes the integrity of the game will result in severe disciplinary actions set forth by our policies and instituted by the Westfort Hockey Association Executive Board. This includes but is not limited to game suspensions, removal from the team and/or expulsion from Westfort Hockey Association. Please consider this communication as a final reminder to ensure that all policies are adhered to.

            As a reminder… there are many policies and procedures that have been implemented to ensure the health and safety of coaches and athletes while on the ice surface. Protective equipment must be worn correctly, and in proper working order to be effective. Please ensure player neck guards and helmets are properly fitted and worn at all games and practices. These are MANDATORY requirements instituted for the player’s protection. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any of the Executive board members.

 

Thank You for your cooperation.
