Code of Conduct

We expect exemplary behavior from players on and off the ice. To help clarify what that means to us (and our expectations for you) we've established a code of conduct for players described here below:

  • Be a Leader: Be someone other players respect both on and off the ice. Play with integrity - knowing that fair play goes beyond the strict interpretation of the game rules and regulations.

  • Be a Good Sport: Display a positive attitude and open frame of mind on and off the ice. Be respectful toward the officials, coaches, teammates and the opposition. Be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.

  • Be a Team Player: Work together. Communicate. Pass on knowledge and encouragement to teammates, be patient with less experienced players.

  • Strive for Excellence: Be open to learning and work hard. Give your personal best during practices and games.

Practices

  • If you are going to miss a practice call or email your head coach. or director. 

  • Give yourself enough time to dress for practice and to be on the ice when the practice starts. It's rude to both coaches and other players to show up late.

  • We are following a set plan of instruction that builds over time. Listen to the coach during practices and do what they tell you. Do not shoot pucks unless it's part of the drill. Don't talk to others when the coach is giving you instructions.

  • We don't expect you do get everything right the first time but we do want you to give us your best effort. 
    If you don't understand the drill or can't hear the coach's instruction ask your coach to repeat the instruction.

  • If you have detailed questions about a drill or what you covered during practice contact the coach after practice to help clarify your understanding.

  • After practice check the website "Instruction" section at least once before your next game to remind yourself what you worked on during practice.

  • Proper conduct is expected in the locker rooms. We don't want any player to get hurt or property to be damaged.

Games

  • If you are going to miss a game call or email your head coach. Head coach contact information in on the new Ice Oasis website.

  • Give yourself enough time to dress for your game and to be on the ice when the game starts. It's rude to both coaches and other players to show up late.

  • Don't ask a coach to reassign your position during a game. Instead talk to your coach after the game (and before the next game) about a position you'd like to try.

  • During the game your coach may give you specific feedback on how you can improve your play - or your teams chances of winning. Try your best to use this feedback during your next shift. If you have questions about the feedback your coach gives you during the game be sure to talk to them after the game to gain a better understanding of what they're looking for.

  • Every few weeks coaches will assign a captain and an assistant captain. If you're selected know that it is because your coach thinks that you can lead the team by your example. Captains and Assistant Captains are expected to shake hands with the opposing coaches before and after the game.

  • Proper conduct is expected in the locker rooms. We don't want any player to get hurt or property to be damaged.
