Be a Good Ambassador for Huntsville
Submitted By Kelly Farnsworth on Saturday, February 8, 2020
Hockey is about so much more than the game. Our kids learn so many values and ethics that take them far beyond hockey into "real life" like respect, dedication, commitment, hard work, how to be a gracious winner and loser; all while having fun, making lifelong friends, being physically active and developing/improving their hockey skills.
 


I was very dismayed to hear that one of our Otters' fans felt it appropriate to disrespect our visitors to Huntsville and the Canada Summit Centre, by throwing a broom on the ice at the end of a Preliminary series in the OMHA Playdowns at the Jack Bionda Arena.

This type of behaviour is far from what Huntsville Minor Hockey Association expects from our members and is in direct opposition to what we hope to instill in all of our players who proudly wear the Otters logo to represent both our town and our organization as both a host and a visitor.

There have been times where I have personally witnessed some very non-desirable behaviour from opposing fans that are either hosting or visiting and have very often been proud of our Otters fans by how they conduct themselves, win or lose. This situation does not make me proud.

To all our Otters fans, please come out and cheer our teams on. Please be respectful. Please remember that the players on the ice are kids playing a game. 

If you cannot control yourself and support our teams respectfully, please stay home.
