For the Good of the Game program developed be Edmonton Minor Hockey Association to promote and honour the values of fun, respect and positive development in the game of hockey for our children. As leaders of Southwest KC Minor Hockey Association (SWKC), it is our responsibility to ensure all players and members are aware of the program and the effects of unacceptable behavior.
Parents and coaches will serve as positive role models and are asked to consider their behaviour and how their behaviour impacts players during games and practices. The players themselves will strive to do their best at all times while having fun.
Referees will also serve an important role as leaders on the ice with fair play as the objective. Keep in mind that we all participate in the game of hockey because it is a sport and it is fun! We will succeed if we all have respect for one another.
What is Unacceptable Behaviour? An individual is considered to be displaying unacceptable behavior if they are verbally or physically harassing and/or abusing a game participant (player, coach or official).
