It will take a team effort to #EndBullying. That’s why we created The Code.
The Code is a pledge that every hockey player, fan, coach, parent, official, volunteer or administrator can make to be a good digital citizen and a great teammate. By joining your teammates in signing The Code, you’re agreeing to treat others with respect online, at the rink and on the ice.
Being a good digital citizen is also about taking steps to manage your online reputation, security and privacy, and using technology responsibly, knowing that excessive use can be distracting. Read the tips in The Playbook to learn more.
“ I show respect to my coaches and managers off the ice and on the ice and have fun all the time. ”
“ I think this CODE can make me a better person AND player on and off the ice!”
Thomas Benjamin Williams
“ Everyone is a welcome and valued member of the team on and off the ice! Bystanding is not ok”
“THE CODE is a commitment to being the best version of yourself on and off the ice. It's is an incredible community initiative and encourages everyone involved in the game to take a stand!”
“ Making all people a party of a family. ”
“ The code is something that no bully has a place in. It’s a friendly place that only people put up others. It’s where if you’re sad you’ll get motivation from your team or other people. ”
“ A safe and happy environment for everyone to enjoy and build memories together!”
“ Bullying can happen to anyone of any age. I've been a victim of cruel bullying as a kid, AND as an adult. It can impede your happiness, mental health, and work ability. Stay strong!”
“ THE CODE means that everyone can enjoy the game without fear or worry of injury or insult, physical or emotional. ”
