1) I will not force my child to participate in hockey.

3) I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

6) I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game.
7) I will remember that children learn best by example.

9) I will never question the officials’ judgement or honesty in public.
