NMDMHA Code of Conduct
As our 22/23 season is winding down, we would like to take this time to thank everyone for representing our hockey program with dignity, understanding and respect. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the NMDMHA Code Of Conduct.

The NMDMHA strives to lead, develop and promote positive hockey experiences for everyone.

In response to the added focus on Discrimination in Sport in Hockey Canada, NM Hockey would like to remind the NM Jr. Starts Community of the following.

Discrimination is when a person is treated differently (in a negative way) because of some aspect of their identity.  Discriminatory language in sport is unacceptable and can result in significant penalties.



• The NMDMHA Code of Conduct states that members must respect the rights, dignity and worth of every human being and treat everyone equally within the context of their activity
• OMHA requires that members refrain from comments or behaviors which are disrespectful, offensive, abusive, racist, or sexist.
• In particular, behavior which constitutes harassment, abuse or bullying will not be tolerated
• OMHA states that failure to comply with the Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action, which may include, but not be limited to: loss or suspension of all privileges connected NMDMHA and all activities and events both present and in the future
• OWHA also is firmly committed to providing an environment that is safe and respectful
• There are consequences for discrimination in minor, women’s, junior and senior hockey. If a discrimination penalty is assigned, it will result in:
• Indefinite suspension pending a hearing
• Minimum five game suspensionExamples of behaviors which could/would result in a discrimination penalty (HC Rule 11.4)
• Using racial slurs
• Slurs targeting sexual orientation or gender identity

NMDMHA continues to work hard to ensure a positive hockey experience for everyone.
