How often do we practice and play?

Most teams practice twice a week, and play either once or twice, depending on the league schedule.
When does the season start and end?

The season officially starts in mid October, and ends with play-offs, near the end of March.

What commitment is there on the part of the player?

They have made the team, accepted the position on the team, therefore are committed to the team. Players are
expected to attend scheduled practices and games (allowing themselves plenty of time). They are expected to
participate in all their team activities, including fundraising, etc. Every effort should be made to support the
team and the Coaching Staff. Most coaches are flexible when it comes to school sports and activities.

Does everyone on the team get equal ice time?

The Victorias policy ensures that all players receive fair ice time. In critical games, during the regular season,
and play-offs, the Coaching Staff may use their discretion.

The St. Vital Victorias "AA" Hockey Club takes pride in the development of our players. Improving skills
performance, and a better understanding of the game is important. However, the success of our program is not
measured by championships, but in the exercise of good sportsmanship, self respect, and respect for
coaches, players, officials, fans, and parents.

To have a positive effect, ALL those involved, should show the spirit of co-operation, a good attitude, and
above all, set a good example.

In the past we have experienced profanity, and offensive verbal abuse, with reference to and directed towards
our players, coaches, game officials, and other participants.

THIS IS NO LONGER TOLERATED. Failure can result in severe consequences such as:
Removal of the individual from the arena, and/or if heard from a parent, removal of their son from his team.
