Players Code of Conduct

YMHC aims to provide all players with a safe, fun and inclusive environment in which they may learn the game of hockey with strong emphasis on equal ice time, team play and sportsmanship. Players can be removed from the house league program if they do not comply with the following rules and guidelines. All players are expected to follow the rules and guidelines below:

Play the game for fun, and not to please a parent, guest or coach.

Play by the rules of YMHC House League Hockey and in the spirit of the game.

Remember that winning isn’t everything. Having fun, improving skills, Making friends and doing your best are important.

Remember that Officials and Coaches are there to help you. Do no argue with the officials or Coaches. Direct all concerns to your Coaches or Convenor. Accept decisions and show Officials and Coaches respect.

Conduct yourself with respect and dignity at all times. Players are not permitted to “mouth-off”, curse or use foul language, slam sticks, or throw equipment because this behaviour can spoil the activity for everyone. Fighting and temper tantrums will not be tolerated.

Show good sportsmanship at all times, both when winning and losing.

Show support and respect for teammates and opponents at all times.

Players will not tease, ridicule, put down or make fun of any players at any time for any reason. No bullying of any kind will be tolerated.

Show respect to the arena facilities and attendants. Do not enter the arena ice surface until arena staff give permission.


Minor hockey has always been concerned about the safety of participants. To this end, various items of safety equipment have been mandated by Hockey Canada for players and on-ice Officials. Chief among these is helmets. Unfortunately, being careful or being an experienced coach is no guarantee against having an accident on the ice that could be fatal or leave the coach with serious physical impairment for the rest of his life. Since 1998, at least seven coaches in both Canada and the USA have died of head injuries as a result of falling on the ice during practices. That is seven too many. In addition, many others suffered injuries of varying degrees – in USA Hockey alone there were 47 documented head injury claims by coaches in one 12 month period (January – December 2004).


Effective January 1, 2008, each Team Official, volunteer and NCCP Instructor under the jurisdiction of the GTHL will be required to wear a C.S.A approved helmet during all on ice activities. A Trainer or any other Team Official who is attending to an injured player at the direction of the Referee is considered exempt from this policy.

Sanctions for non compliance:

  1. The first infraction under the policy results in a written notification/warning by one or all of the following; GTHL Board of Directors, GTHL Executive Director, GTHL Technical Director for Coaching,
  2. For a second infraction by the same party, the individual shall be suspended from participation in GTHL activity for a minimum of 2 weeks, and
  3. For a third infraction by the same party, the individual shall be suspended from participation in GTHL activity for a period of 1 year.
