Parent Code of Conduct

Skate Canada is committed to ensuring that all skaters have the opportunity to participate in a safe and welcoming environment that is encouraging and promotes their overall development. Parents have an enormous influence on skaters’ experiences in the sport. The quality of a skater’s experience is determined by their relationships with parents and the manner in which parents conduct themselves in the Skate Canada environment.

parents who are members of Skate Canada or have children who are members of Skate
Canada. Parents shall abide by this code at all times while participating in any Skate
Canada club or school, competition, or activity.

  • All parents are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner consistent with the values of fair play, integrity, open communication and mutual respect
  • Parents shall always model positive responsible behaviour and communicate with their son/daughter that they expect them to do the same. Parents will assume the major responsibility for their son/daughter's on ice conduct and attitude.

    harassing, sexist, racist, abusive, disrespectful or otherwise offensive without hostility
    or violence.

    development. Parents shall respect that the professional coach is responsible and
    empowered for the on‐ice and off‐ice development of the athlete. A parent’s role shall
    be to take a healthy interest in their child’s progress and development and be
    responsible for the child’s nutrition, rest, adherence to off‐ice training regimen set by
    the coach or other fitness professional, overall health, life‐balance, and moral and
    emotional support.
