Zero Tolerance Policy 2018-19

Recently, several negative aspects of today’s society have crept into the sport of ice hockey with a vengeance. The increasing number of physical assaults against on-ice officials reached staggering proportions during the past season. There were over 75 reported incidents of direct physical confrontations from a player, coach, or spectator in amateur hockey. These assaults have occurred at all levels of our game.

 As a result of the alarming number of physical assaults against officials, the USA Hockey Board of Directors has developed a Zero Tolerance Policy regarding the verbal abuse of officials and inappropriate spectator behavior. Verbal abuse of officials is the first step leading to physical abuse of officials. This Zero Tolerance Policy has been unanimously endorsed by the Youth, Junior, and Senior Councils, the District Referees-In-Chief, and the Coaching Education Program Directors for immediate implementation have unanimously endorsed this Zero Tolerance Policy.

All USA Hockey rules & regulations in accordance with the Zero Tolerance Policy will be followed at Canlan Ice Sports Romeoville.

I, agree that my entire family will follow the Zero Tolerance Policy of USA Hockey and whether at Canlan Ice Sports Romeoville or a visiting arena, we will always follow the regulations of this policy. Furthermore, if it is found that I, or anyone in my family, are found to violate these rules, I realize that swift and serious actions will be taken. These actions may include a ban from the rink, or even removal from the team.
