It Can't Possibly be on Me!?!

Our leagues are an outlet for physical exercise and a way to meet new people and socialize in a fun setting. With the large number of new players in both leagues this winter, we thought that it would be appropriate to remind people about good sportsmanship by sharing again with you this post from last fall.

Check out the attached Peanuts comic from several years ago. Although funny in the comics, it’s not so funny when it happens in our floor hockey leagues. Remember, our leagues are meant to be non-contact. Not a little bit of contact, not “I’ll push him since he pushed me” contact – no contact. Please be mindful and do your best to watch out for pushing, shoving and any physical contact along the walls and in the corners. C’mon – this is recreational floor hockey! We’re out there to have fun and get some exercise; not to get hurt. Thanks for reflecting on this.
