  3. I will ensure that all players get equitable instruction, support and playing time.

  1. I will play hockey because I want to, not just because others or coaches want me to.
  2. I will play by the rules of hockey, and in the spirit of the game.

  6. I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game.
