The Ice Hockey Australia Board has been made aware of comments made on social media recently toward one of its Board members.

There is no place for abuse of any form in our game, whether it be at games, in meetings or on social media.

As an organisation and community, we must live up to our values, including:

  • The importance of acting with honesty and INTEGRITY at all times
  • Provide a positive ice hockey experience in a SAFE, sportsmanlike environment, and
  • Promote physical and mental HEALTH AND WELLBEING through ice hockey, and it is up to us to call out anti-social behaviour when it occurs.

The organisation will continue to support all of its Directors, volunteers, players and officials and has reported the users and their comments to the relevant organisation.

Ice Hockey Australia will make no further statement or comment until a comprehensive investigation of the identified behaviours is complete.
