All players, team officials and parents must recognize that they are representatives of both our Association and our greater community. Our members are expected to recognize that their personal actions can have an impact on the reputation of our Association. We are all ambassadors of WMHA, and it is critical to our success that we take pride in who we are, and maintain our integrity and an honourable
reputation both within minor hockey and the greater community.

FAIR PLAY CODE
I will not force my son or daughter to participate in hockey.
I will remember that my son or daughter plays hockey for his or her enjoyment, not mine.
I will encourage my son or daughter to play by the rules and to resolve conflict without resorting to hostility or violence.
I will make my son or daughter feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and playing their best.
I will never ridicule or yell at any participant for making a mistake or losing a game.
I will remember that children and youth learn by example. I will applaud good plays and performances by both my child's team and their opponents.
I will never question the official's judgment or honesty in public. I recognize officials are developing in the same manner as players.
I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from hockey games.
I will respect and show appreciation of the FAIR PLAY CODE, rules and regulations as set by Hockey Canada, BC Hockey and my Minor Hockey Association.
