Code of Conduct




The HEO U18 AAA League believes strongly in the core values of teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership through example.  Our Association strives to produce a program that contributes to the overall goal of player development both on and off the ice.  This mindset relies heavily on our collective ability, as a group of families, to create and maintain a safe, fun and positive environment for all of our players.

As a League we request that you take the time to review the below PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT and support us by abiding by the Agreement as stated.  You are a direct reflection of HEO U18 AAA League as a whole and therefore any conduct deemed unbecoming will be addressed.   We therefore ask for your support in this effort and remind you that proper conduct and sportsmanship is expected of ALL Association members at ALL times.


Parent / Legal Guardian Code of Conduct Agreement

As a parent / legal guardian of a child involved in the HEO U18 AAA League, I agree to abide by and follow the rules and guidelines listed below;

I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any desire to win.

I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players.

I will leave the coaching to the coaching staff. I will encourage my child to play in a manner consistent with the team’s strategy or plans. I will not undermine the coaches’ authority at any time by trying to be a coach instead of a parent.

I will provide support for coaches and officials working with the athletes to provide a positive experience for all. I understand that coaching is a difficult endeavor, and I will always give coaches the benefit of the doubt and treat them with respect.

I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game. I understand that making mistakes is a key part of learning.

I will remember that children learn by example. I will applaud good plays by both my child’s team and their opponents. I will not be critical of, or embarrass any player, including opposing players.

I will treat all players, coaches, team officials, parents and spectators with dignity and respect in language, attitude, behavior and mannerisms. I understand that my behavior reflects on my child and on the HEO U18 AAA League as a whole.

I will at no time question the team official’s and/or on ice official’s judgment or honesty in public. I recognize that officials are being developed in the same manner as players.

I will never yell, taunt, threaten or inflict physical violence upon any player, coach, team official, on ice official or spectator at any hockey activity. I will refrain from the use of abusive or vulgar language, racial, ethnic or gender-related slurs at any time at the rink or any hockey function. I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from any HEO U18 AAA League sanctioned event.

I will abide by the Hockey Canada 24 Hour Rule at ALL times.

I understand that by signing this document I am agreeing to support and promote this Parent / Legal Guardian Code of Conduct Agreement. Further I recognize that my failure to comply with this agreement or my participation in any of the defined CONDUCT SUBJECT TO DISCIPLINE will result in disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion from the HEO U18 AAA League.
