New NWMHA Minimum supplemental suspension policy

Hello NWMHA members,

On Monday night November 20, the Executive of NWMHA passed the attached policy regarding suspensions for repeat offenders (please see attached policy). The policy will be incorporated into the policy manual on the web site shortly.

Within our policies the President or Grievance Committee have the ability to suspend and in every case it takes a lot of volunteer time to decide what to do. Over the last few years the majority of these volunteers time have been spent of 3-4 player per year. These players are getting multiple major (majors, gross and match) penalties, and although we acknowledge the occasional mistake will occur, players need to learn they are responsible for their actions.

It is the opinion of the Executive that for a handful of players the standard PCAHA, BC Hockey and Hockey Canada suspensions are not enough. In short the policy adds an additional two games minimum NWMHA suspension, on top of any PCAHA, BC Hockey or Hockey Canada suspension.

It is our hope that these increased suspensions will send a message to these players and their behavior will change.

This small hand full of players need to understand that playing hockey is not a right but a privilege.

Robert Nasato
