Following a number of reported incidents this season, Telford Tigers would like to draw everyone’s attention to our updated Code of Conduct. The latest version of the code of conduct is easily accessible from the Home Menu on our website and is replicated below as well:
“Ice Hockey is a family sport and as such we (Telford Tigers) feel it necessary to promote what is expected from all those attending games / events or using social media relating to the Telford Tigers and Ice Hockey in general.
A spectator (including volunteers) present at Telford Tigers home or away games, or otherwise involved in any activity staged or sanctioned by
Telford Tigers Ice Hockey Club must:
(a) respect the decisions of Match Officials;
(b) respect the rights, dignity of every person regardless of their gender, ability, race, colour, religion, language, politics, national or ethnic origin;
(c) not use violence in any form, whether it is against other spectators, Team Officials (including coaches), Match Officials or Players;
(d) not engage in discrimination, harassment in the rink or online on various social media outlets or abuse in any form, including the use of obscene or offensive language or gestures, the incitement of hatred or violence or partaking in indecent or racist chanting;
(e) conduct themselves in a manner that enhances, rather than injures, the reputation and goodwill of the Telford Tigers and Ice Hockey generally.
Any person who does not comply with this Code of Conduct or who otherwise causes a disturbance may be asked to leave the venue and banned from attending future matches.”
