How to conduct oneself at SPHA Programs and Tournaments
Fair play and respect are the backbone of any successful recreational sports program. In order for a positive environment to be created, it is imperative that all Participants have respect for all participants/players, coaches, officials, administrators, spectators and the sport of hockey. Hockey is a game demanding high levels of concentration and skill. Participants must recognize the importance of following all staff and/or coach instructions and agree to follow such instructions.
SPHA reserves the right to refuse admission to, or eject, any Participant whose conduct is deemed by SPHA to be disorderly, who uses vulgar and/or abusive/offensive language, and/or who fails to comply with any rules, terms, and conditions applicable to any Program, Tournament and/or any facility’s rules in which SPHA operates out of. Any dues/fees paid in advance of a Participant’s removal from the Program, Tournament and/or facility, are and will remain fully non-refundable.
Types of misconduct that may result in suspension, ejection or other appropriate disciplinary action include, but are not limited to, the following:
It is recommended that each Participants review and familiarize themselves with any applicable Program and/or Tournament rules and/or policies that may be issued for a Program and/or Tournament, as such rules and/or policies may have specific guidelines contained within.
All Participants taking part in any and all activities, including those on the ice, are required to sign a waiver through mySPHA.
