 Zero Tolerance Policy  Player-Parent    2020-2021 Season 
I. Introduction  
In an effort to make ice hockey a more enjoyable and rewarding experience for all participants, the league has adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy with respect to the behavior of the players, coaches, parents, managers, and guardians who are members of the  Premier Hockey League of New England. The adoption of this policy essentially means that everyone involved in the League shall act in a respectful and sportsmanship like manner. Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated and loss of control is NEVER acceptable. All teams must submit their USA Hockey official roster along with completing this signed Zero Tolerance Policy form on-line with the PHLNE website from all the coaches/managers, players/parents in the League no later than September 1 each year. Any team not meeting this deadline will be assessed a penalty of $25.00 per day until all information is received or other sanctions may apply. It is recommended you keep a copy of your Zero Tolerance form submission from the PHLNE website. 
The Zero Tolerance Policy affords all participants direction in developing self-discipline, leadership, integrity, character, commitment, teamwork and a healthy attitude and respect for rules and regulations.
