SSYHA CODE OF CONDUCT

I hereby understand, agree to abide by and support the current USA Hockey rules of play, personal conduct, and terms and conditions for membership.

RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY

I understand and appreciate that the risk of injury from hockey is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist. By my/my child participating, I KNOWINGLY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown. Further, I have read, understand, agree to the Waiver of Liability, Release and Indemnity Agreement as printed on the back of the Individual Registration Form, and confirm that the absence of my signature on that form is due to administrative facilitation of my child’s registration.

AUTHORIZATION FOR SERVICES

I hereby give consent for USA Hockey and its member teams to provide me/my participating child with emergency medical care as warranted and associated with participation on a member team during sanctioned events, and to provide housing, meals, and transportation of its choice when associated with authorized team travel.

PROMOTIONS

I hereby authorize USA Hockey and its member teams to utilize my/my child’s name and/or photographic representation in the promotions of their programs.

PARENT’S CODE OF CONDUCT

  • Do not force your child to participate in sports, but support their desires to play their chosen sport. Children are involved in organized sports for their enjoyment. Make it fun.

  • Encourage your child to play by the rules. Remember, children learn best by example, so applaud the good plays of both teams.

  • Do not embarrass your child by yelling at players, coaches, or officials. By showing a positive attitude toward the game and all of its participants, your child will benefit.

  • Emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit your young athlete. De-emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.

  • Know and study the rules of the game, and support the officials on and off the ice. This approach will help in the development and support of the game. Any criticism of the officials only hurts the game.

  • Applaud a good effort in victory and in defeat and enforce the positive points of the game. Never yell at or physically abuse your child after a game or practice – It is destructive. Work towards removing the physical and verbal abuse in youth sports.

  • Recognize the importance of volunteer coaches. They are important to the development of your child and the sport. Communicate with them and support them.

  • If you enjoy the game, learn all you can about the game, and volunteer! PLAYER’S CODE OF CONDUCT
