Blyth Brussels Minor Hockey Association

Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct for Parents

  • 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 conflicts 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 a game.

  • I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard.

  • I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game.

  • I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays/performances by both my child’s team and their opponents.

  • I will never question the officials’ judgment or honesty in public.

  • I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s hockey games.

  • I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteer coaches who give their time to coach hockey for my child.

Code of Conduct for Players

  • I will play hockey because I want to, not just because others or coaches want me to.

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

  • I will control my temper - fighting and “mouthing off” can spoil the activity for everyone.

  • I will respect my opponents.

  • I will do my best to be a true team member.

  • I will remember that winning isn’t everything - that having fun, improving skills, making friends and doing my best are also important.

  • I will acknowledge all good plays/performances - those of my team and of my opponents.

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