The REVISED ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY aims to eliminate abusive behavior by spectators directed at game officials and other participants during a youth, girls, or high school game.
Should any spectator (including a parent, sibling, or other family member
s of a participant) of an AAHA team or association be removed from a youth, girls, or high school hockey game for abusive, profane, or other unacceptable conduct, which may consist of any loud, obscene or otherwise offensive language or gesture directed at any game official (“Abusive Conduct”) or other participants, that person shall be subject to discipline as prescribed below.
Spectators shall be subject to the prescribed discipline whether the removal is by a game official or Arena personnel or if the alleged Abusive Conduct is investigated after the fact by the proper Disciplinary Authority such as a Club, League, or Affiliate. If such alleged Abusive Conduct is found to have occurred by a preponderance of proof; the following disciplinary action shall be imposed on the individual(s) that were removed or found to have committed Abusive Conducted during AAHA sanctioned competition.
