House League Game Incident Update
Editors Note: With an ongoing investigation into an incident involving multiple coaches and parents from a recent house league hockey game in Chatham-Kent, we feel it is necessary at this time to allow the local hockey organization to complete their investigation, and for a decision to be made on the matter before continuing this conversation on CKSN.
While everyone can understand and agree that parents and coaches need to act responsibly in the presence of youth, we felt that some of the comments being submitted by readers were not adding to the conversation, and rather, were against the idea of adults acting appropriately in the roles of parents, coaches, volunteers, and fans; and allowing kids to have fun playing the game of hockey, without distraction.
While all sides involved admit that a confrontation occurred and many people at the game were at fault, we would like to allow the local organization to complete their process.
CKSN will update this story later this week after the local hockey organization has completed their hearing and made a formal decision in regards to parents, coaches, and volunteers involved in this incident.
