Code of Conduct
The NAHL, along with USA Hockey, are working together to create a more positive environment for the athletes to participate in by strengthening the rules as they are related to dangerous actions and behaviors. This is being done through a league-wide NAHL Code of Conduct policy that was implemented in 2012.
The purpose was to address the unwanted behaviors and to review all existing playing rules, identifying those actions that negatively impact the game, and developing a supplementary discipline guideline that addresses these actions and would be acceptable to the participating junior stakeholders.
Each NAHL player, coach and official will be required to review these documents and acknowledge their acceptance of the principles of the initiative and signify their commitment to properly enforce the rules of the game while adhering to the NAHL Code of Conduct.
