MAHA and USA Hockey are committed to creating a safe and fair environment for all participants. Respect for the game, the opponents, coaches and officials is a critical part of the environment that is created and it covers several different aspects of sportsmanship and fair play. This initiative will encourage a change in culture as to what is considered to be acceptable/unacceptable body checking and competitive contact at all levels of play.

Points of Emphasis

  1. Proper Body Contact
  2. Remove Illegal Hits, Late Hits, Hits on Vulnerable or Defenseless Players
  3. Remove Unsportsmanlike conduct related to illegal hits
