Player Code of Conduct

The Number One Guiding Principle

The number one guiding principal of the Faustina hockey program is to have fun, work hard and to develop hockey skills, teamwork and sportsmanship.
This quote from Hockey Canada says it all, “From the pond to the pros, success in hockey begins with respect. Players who respect themselves, teammates, opponents, coaches, trainers, GAME OFFICIALS, administrators, parents and fans develop winning attitudes both on and off the ice.”

• I will play hockey because I want to, not just because others or coaches want me to.
