Parent's Code of Conduct

As a parent member of the Eastside Tigers Youth Hockey program, I pledge to follow this code of conduct:

  1. I will not force my child to play hockey. I will support his or her desire to play their chosen sport.
  2. I will do my best to make hockey fun for my child.
  3. I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child, and any child, ahead of my personal desire to win.
  4. I will remember that the game is for the children, not the adults.
  5. I will recognize the importance of volunteer coaches to the development of my child and the sport of hockey.
  6. I will take the time to attend team meetings to get to know the philosophy and expectations of my child's coaches.
  7. I will communicate respectfully with my child's coaches and support their efforts.
  8. I will have my child at all practices and games on time. I will notify my child's coach if my child will be late or cannot attend.
  9. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during practices and games unless I am an appointed coach of the team. I will encourage my child to play in a manner consistent with the team's strategy or plans.
