The term “organization” includes all players, coaches, volunteers, and parents. We consider parents to be an important part of the Spitfire program. Your positive support for all players is welcome in the stands.
We expect that all families will treat each other with respect and refrain from any and all activities which foster a negative environment. Confrontational situations will not be tolerated. We ask that any questions or comments you may have regarding the team be addressed at an appropriate time with the coaches or director.
We are implementing the “24-hour” rule. The rule requires you to take 24 hours to think about your issues before addressing them with the staff. We also ask that any concerns be addressed away from the rink.
Additionally, the locker room will be off limits to parents.
We expect the players to dress themselves (if they cannot they will be asked to get dressed before coming to the rink). The locker room is a place for our young athletes to have as their own and to look within themselves and their teammates for answers.
Cheering and clapping in the stands is acceptable and encouraged. However, coaching from the stands is not acceptable. Examples of coaching from the stands include yelling “skate it” or “pass it” and signaling to players between shifts or while they are on the ice. It is distracting to your child and aggravating to those around you.
Parents, players and coaches are required to act respectfully and in the spirit of good sportsmanship inside and outside the arena.
