|Zero Tolerance Policy|
NIHL continues to vigorously strive for the highest standards of sportsmanship in ice hockey. Every participant; whether player, coach, referee, official, administrator, parent, or spectator has a responsibility to comply with and support Zero Tolerance and to behave in a respectable manner.
Zero Tolerance essentially means that everyone involved in ice hockey shall act in a respectful and sportsmanship like manner so that ice hockey will be a strongly desirable and rewarding experience and that disrespectful and/or unsportsman like conduct will not be tolerated. Loss of self-control is NEVER acceptable.
Education and enforcement begins at the club level. Every organization is required to take a strong stand against Zero Tolerance violations and aggressively enforce stated penalties.
