Welcome to the 2022-2023 Hockey Season!
Welcome back into the rink
and thank you for returning after two very challenging years during
the COVID pandemic.
Our volunteers and staff have worked very hard to prepare a great
year of hockey for you to enjoy!
It is an exciting time of year as you have the
opportunity to write your hockey story on a fresh sheet of ice!
While we are extremely excited to return to the rinks, ALLIANCE Hockey is providing this reminder to all members that the hockey environment which includes on, and off ice activities shall consist of respect and adherence to the rules and regulations in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants.
Everyone deserves to participate in a respectful environment.
It is our collective responsibility to ensure that hockey reflects inclusivity, fairness, and safety.
Speak out against maltreatment.
All participants should be aware of the negative impact of maltreatment and recognize the ways in which we can create an inclusive and respectful hockey environment.
» Racial Slurs – the Hockey Canada Rule is a minimum 5-game suspension. ALL incidents, whether
heard by an Official or not, must be investigated.
» Officials, Coaches, players, and all others involved in the game are instructed to speak up and report any maltreatment. Eliminating trash talk is a giant step towards ending maltreatment.
» Hockey is best enjoyed without negative distractions - whether on or off the ice.
» There is NO room in the game for behaviour that is contrary to the Codes of Conduct.
As we embark on the 2022-2023 season, lets make this the best season yet!
Players will lace up and work hard, playing with their friends while gaining wonderful life lessons.
Coaches have the unique opportunity to provide skill development to an eager group of players while building a solid team with goals to be reached, both on and off the ice.
Parents, family and friends come together again through the reunion of their 'hockey family' to cheer on our kids, as they enjoy some arena popcorn and a coffee (or two) in the stands!
It is time to once again share in the fun and build upon those lifetime friendships while enjoying the game we love!
On behalf of everyone at ALLIANCE Hockey, we wish you a fabulous 2022-2023 hockey season!
