Diamondback Inline Hockey Club

Athletic competition should be fun. Essential elements of character building are embodied in the concept of sportsperson ship and six core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when all involved consciously teach, and enforce, these values and are committed to the ideal of pursuing victory with honour. Parents/guardians of athletes can and should play an important role and their good-faith efforts to honour the words and spirit of these values which can dramatically improve the quality of a child’s sports experience.
