      USA Hockey Declaration of Player Safety & Respect

      USA Hockey is committed to creating a safe and fair environment for all participants. Respect for the game, opponents, coaches, and officials is a critical part of that environment and it covers several different aspects of sportsmanship and fair play. This Declaration of Safety, Fair Play and Respect will guide a change in culture as to what is considered to be acceptable/unacceptable body checking and competitive contact at all levels of play.

      Hawks coaches will be reviewing it with their teams.  We ask that all parents watch this to familiarize yourselves with this initiative.  Click below to view the video in its entirety:
