Honour the game
Just this past Sunday (May 7), the Hong Kong Amateur Hockey Club (HKAHC) organized an “Honour the Game” event in an effort to promote respect within the hockey community, not only towards the rules of the game, but also the game officials, staff, opponents, and one self. This is part of the Club’s continuous endeavour to encourage a good hockey culture and to take Hong Kong ice hockey to the next level.
An incident occurred in one of Hong Kong Amateur Hockey Club’s hockey leagues in April, an official was injured by a player while refereeing the game. The Disciplinary Committee of the HKAHC evaluated the incident and penalized the player in question to prevent similar occurrences in the future.
In order to respond to this unfortunate event in a positive light, the HKAHC decided to hold an exhibition game dubbed “Honour the Game” for team managers, players and officials of various local hockey leagues to reiterate the importance of sportsmanship and respect in any competition.
The HKAHC wishes to bring the issue to the attention of players, parents, team managers, staff, and coaches alike, and to remind them the example they set for the young people in the game on and off the ice.
