I understand that the goal of the Cincinnati Swords Organization is for players to enjoy the game, have fun, improve their hockey skills, and abide by the rules as outlined by USA Hockey. Accordingly, I agree to the following:
I understand that I am required to conduct myself in an appropriate manner at any and all facilities. This includes, but is not limited to, the parking lot, locker room, ice rink and any common areas.
I will abide by my team rules as outlined by my coach. I will show respect to my coaches, officials, teammates, opposing players and team/rink property. My parents/guardians and other family members are also expected to act respectfully.
I will use appropriate language at all times. I will respectfully shake hands with the opposing team and conduct myself in an appropriate manner during games and off the ice.
I will not possess any tobacco products, drugs, alcohol, and will not carry any weapons.
I will not use my cell phone or any electronic device for social media or photos while in the locker room.

Parent Code of Conduct
I understand that the goal of the Cincinnati Swords Organization is for players to enjoy the game, have fun, improve their hockey skills, and abide by the rules as outlined by USA Hockey. Players are involved in organized sports for their enjoyment. Make It fun. Accordingly, I agree to the following:
Encourage your player to play by the rules. Remember, children learn best by example, so applaud the good plays of both teams.
Do not embarrass your child by yelling at players, coaches or officials. By showing positive attitude toward the game and all of its participants, your child will benefit.
Know and study the rules of the game and support the officials on and off the ice. This approach will help in the development and support of the game. Any criticism of the officials only hurts the game.
Applaud a good effort in both victory and defeat, and enforce the positive points of the game. Never yell or physically abuse your child after a game or practice – it is destructive. Work toward removing the physical and verbal abuse in youth sports.
Recognize the importance of volunteer coaches. They are important to the development of your child and the sport.
I fully understand that as a parent/guardian were to violate any guidelines outlined by USA Hockey, I may also jeopardize my player’s eligibility to continue to play hockey for the Cincinnati Swords.
