Respect the game and have fun!
Submitted By Executive Committee on Tuesday, September 8, 2015
From the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) website, and fully endorsed by Oshawa Minor Hockey.

Please Remember.
These are kids.
This is a game.
Coaches are volunteers.
Referees are human.
This is not the Stanley Cup Finals.
Respect the game and have FUN!


The game of hockey is for kids. Kids play the game because they love it and because it is fun. As parents we must all realize that, for kids, positive participation is always more important than excellence. The personal and social development that comes from being part of a team is one of the most enriching experiences offered by the game. We must continue to live the values of fun and fair play, respect, integrity and teamwork with a balanced perspective of expectations and definition of success. We must celebrate our good experiences with this great game. It’s about play! It’s all about family! It’s about us all having fun and being kids!
