The USA Hockey Board of Directors has developed a Zero Tolerance Policy regarding the verbal abuse of officials and inappropriate spectator behavior. Verbal abuse of officials is the first step leading to physical abuse of officials. This Zero Tolerance Policy has been unanimously endorsed by the Youth, Junior, and Senior Councils, the District Referees-In-Chief, and the Coaching Education Program Directors for immediate implementation have unanimously endorsed this Zero Tolerance Policy. All SAM families and coaches received an email regarding zero tolerance for inappropriate behaviors. Should you have any further questions, please reach out to Derek Wing, Hockey Steering Committee Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
