Discipline Guideline for Parents & Spectators

  • use of obscene language or abusive behavior to any person on or off the ice
  • disrespect towards league team officials
  • continual disruptions which may cause a delay of game
  • repeated disrespect for rulings of an official

Offences related to above by a parent or spectator of a league event may result in the following type of sanction;
 
•           30 to 90 day suspension from league buildings of ice times

Discipline Guideline for Team Officials

Team officials are responsible for supervising and controlling the conduct of their players, before, during and after each game or practice.
 
Failure by team officials to control the conduct of their team (i.e. brawls, vandalism, lobby or parking lot altercations, etc.) may result in suspensions or other disciplinary action with the cost of any damages being paid by those involved.
 
Team Officials are to treat players, referees and off ice officials with respect as role models within the league organization. Failure by Team Officials to adhere to the coach’s code of conduct may result in warnings to removal from Team Staff depending on the nature and severity of the incident.
 
In the unlikely event a team official is found to have committed a THIRD LEVEL OFFENCE, he or she will have caused themselves to be suspended from participation with an league team for life. The Executive will review all other infractions.
