Code of Conduct

Camp Participant Code of Conduct

  I will be ready on time.

  I will respect the School and Arena.

  I will respect fellow camp-mates.

  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 respect my opponents.

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

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

  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.

  I will make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the players' ages and abilities.

  I will remember that participants need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example.
