aGENT Posted April 13, 2015 Share Posted April 13, 2015 http://www.cknw.com/2015/04/13/71681/ The Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association is putting more requirements in place to ensure everyone on and off the ice at the leagues games is respected.President Jim Humphreys says parents and guardians will need to take a Respect in Sport class.Theyll also need to sign a code of conduct waiver.Theyll have until October 31st to take the Respect in Sport. And then if they dont have it by October 31, unfortunately the child will come off the ice until such time as they take it.Hes says hes seen an improvement since penning a letter in January, threatening a ban on spectators.The biggest difference is the good parents Ill call them good parents because theyre all good parents but the non-offending parents are turning in the offending parents.Humphreys says other places in the country like Torontos Minor Hockey League are looking at following the leagues model.A bit sad that this is even required,. As usual, it's the few idiots ruining things for the many.Otherwise, I think it's a great response to some overzealous morons acting like poorly disciplined children. I hope it comes to the mainland.
