Before you act this season, W.A.I.T.
Date: Nov, 21, 2023 09:00 AM EDT
The Northern Ontario Hockey Association (NOHA) has seen a dramatic increase in behaviours not conducive with good sportsmanship during and after game play. Far too often, we have to investigate complaints about behaviours that reflect poorly on our sport and are damaging to the recipients of these actions. The majority of these investigations lead to suspensions.
It is the NOHA’s goal to eliminate these behaviours from the hockey arenas in Northern Ontario.
In order to achieve the goal of reducing these incidents, we are asking everyone to W.A.I.T. before they do something that they will likely regret later.
