RESPECT - Ethics & Behaviour

Fundamental to our success as a hockey club is our belief that everyone has the right to take part in and enjoy hockey. England Hockey sum this up really well:

"We think of hockey as a sport for all.  A family sport packed with passion, speed and respect.  One that anyone can enjoy however they choose to participate – as a player, umpire, official, volunteer or a parent supporting on the sidelines.  However you choose to be involved in the game, you have a right to do it with enjoyment."

We at Yate Hockey Club have adopted the above as our own working practice and endeavour to ensure all members of and visitors to our club have a positive experience. It is important that all are aware of the policies that we as a club have adopted and work towards. These can be found in the files below.
