LJK Code of Conduct
This year, we require all parents to read and sign the LJK Code of Conduct.  The London Junior Knights want to remind all players, parents and spectators that the Alliance Code of Conduct also applies to any hockey related communications including those posted on the Internet.

The LJK Code of Conduct can be found under Downloads > Organizational Documents > LJK Code of Conduct
The Alliance Code of Conduct can be found under Downloads > Organizational Documents > Alliance Hockey Code of Conduct.

The Alliance Code of Conduct specifically states : "Members of the ALLIANCE shall refrain from comments or behaviours which are disrespectful, offensive, abusive, racist or sexist. In particular, behaviour which constitutes harassment or abuse will not be tolerated, and will be dealt with accordingly. Failure to comply with this Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the discipline policy .  Such action may result in the member losing the privileges which come with membership in the ALLIANCE, including the opportunity to participate in alliance activities and events, both present and future." We have received a number of complaints from parents concerned that their children are being subjected to taunts, insults and other rude comments that are hurtful and mean spirited.  These comments often appear to come from adults who are familiar with team rosters and individual players. The Code of Conduct specifically reminds parents that children learn best by example.  Further the Code for parents includes a promise to "support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children's hockey games".  Verbal abuse includes both written and oral communications. Bullying behaviour on websites, chat lines or other media will not be tolerated.  Many sites on which individuals may think they are posting "anonymously" include embedded message headers that can help identify the source of the posting.  Should we identify any member of the organization engaging in such conduct, a zero tolerance policy will apply. Kevin EganLondon Junior Knights
