  1. Australian Hockey Code of Conduct


Each AHO is committed to promoting and strengthening the positive image of hockey and its participants in Australia and to ensuring that everyone involved with hockey is treated with respect and dignity.


The Australian Hockey Code of Conduct aims to ensure that everyone involved in hockey is aware of the standards of behaviour expected of them and the mechanism for dealing with any conduct that is alleged to breach the Code of Conduct. Schedule 1 to this Code of Conduct also includes “position statements” to outline other forms of conduct that would be considered inappropriate within our sport.


Acknowledgement of this Code of Conduct is a requirement of your registration.

  1. Safe Hockey Safe Kids Code

Each AHO is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people who are involved in our sport.


The Safe Hockey Safe Kids Code (captured in Schedule 2 of the Australian Hockey Code of Conduct) provides specific expectations of any adult in hockey who is in contact with a child or young person whether they are in a coaching role, or just a member of a club who shares the environment with children and young people. We aim to build a culture where we all play a part.


Acknowledgement of this Safe Hockey Safe Kids Code is a requirement of your registration.
