The Lakeland Hockey Association is governed by the policies, rules and regulations of LHA, MAHA and USA Hockey. We expect our players, coaches, parents and other LHA spectators to follow the words and the spirit of the ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY of USA Hockey, which is described below.
The LHA Rules & Conduct Committee will investigate and take appropriate action on any Zero Tolerance Policy issue brought to our attention, whether or not a penalty or suspension is imposed for the conduct in question.
If you witness an incident that you believe may violate the Zero Tolerance Policy, we urge you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Date/time of incident
LHA coach’s name (if known)
Names of people involved
Description of incident
Your contact information- Your contact information will not be shared, but is necessary for any follow-up questions we may have.
Our reputation is our greatest asset. LHA thanks you for your support in complying with the Zero Tolerance Policy and for encouraging the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship for all of our players, coaches and families.
We realize that watching little loved ones skate around the rink can occasionally be frustrating. But there should be limits on the manifestations of that frustration. If you take a look at the following questions and notice a bit of yourself in there, or if you answer yes to all of them, we ask that you kindly remove your name from running for hockey parent of the year.
