THE STOP SIGN - WHY IS IT ON OUR NEW JERSEYS?

Hockey Culture Must Change if Concussion Problem is to be Solved

There’s no shortage of ideas on how to deal with the problem of concussions in hockey, but one thing is clear: Rules and education can only go so far. Taken from an article written in The Star in 2012, Mark Moore states that e-mails he gets from frustrated parents are more than he would like.  One from an exasperated parent whose child — more skilled than most of his peers — was continually hit, especially in the head. Another from a parent whose son sustained two concussions in a three-month period and, upon his return, didn’t get as much ice time as in his pre-injury days and lost his passion for the game.

Moore, who runs a hockey school with his brothers — former NHLer Steve and Maple Leafs Dominic — says many incidents he hears about are “disturbingly similar to the worst of what you see in the professional games and on TV.”  “It’s pretty sad,” he says. “We’ve had kids that were just incredible players and they have a couple of bad concussions and the player comes back to your program and you’re like, ‘Gosh, what happened to this kid? He’s not the same player; he’s not the same person.’”

Moore has his own concussion history: he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins but a concussion ended his career and he never played in the NHL. Like his brothers, he went to Harvard; he has also written two hockey books and has some ideas for reducing head injuries in the game.

The push to rid hockey of concussions has some experts harkening back to the success of the Safety Towards Other Players (STOP) program, widely credited for playing a significant role in reducing spinal injuries in minor hockey. “There’s no reason for minor hockey to sit around and wait for the pros to make changes,” Moore says.

The Safety Towards Other Players (STOP) Program began in Windsor, Ontario in 1999 in hopes of raising awareness of the dangers of checking-from-behind in hockey. Led by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association, the STOP Program is now mandatory in many hockey associations around the world.  The program involves putting a 3” S.T.O.P. patch which is worn on the center back of their jersey (both home and away). This Program sends a message to all players that the act of checking-from-behind is not accepted in the game of hockey, is extremely dangerous, and a cheap shot.  The overall values of safety and Fair Play are also an essential part of the Program.  If a player can read the stop sign right before they are getting ready to check a player, then they are too far behind the player to hit and should immediately STOP from hitting the opposing player from behind.  In addition, listed in USA Hockey Rule Handbook, Rule 608, checking from behind is prohibited.

USA Hockey - Rule 608 | Checking from Behind

(Note) Checking from Behind occurs when a check is delivered to a player directly from behind, or diagonally from behind.  The onus is on the player delivering the check to not hit from behind.  This includes body checking or pushing an opponent from behind in open ice or directly into the boards or goal frame. 

 (a) A minor plus a misconduct penalty, or a major plus a game misconduct penalty, shall be assessed for checking from behind.

(b) A major penalty plus game misconduct penalty shall be assessed to any player who injures an opponent, or causes them to go head first into the boards or goal frame, as a result of checking from behind.

(c) A match penalty shall be assessed for checking from behind in all instances when a player clearly checks an opponent from behind with excessive force while the opponent is in a vulnerable or defenseless position or the actions was deemed to be a deliberate attempt to injure and opponent.

Putting the stop sign on the back of the new Park City Ice Miner’s jerseys is another method to promote the program and awareness that checking from behind is not acceptable in hockey. “PCIM strives to provide the safest environment possible for all participants, especially players,” stated by the PCIM Board of Directors.  The STOP Program is part of PCIM’s continuing education that checking from behind is not tolerated.  Parents should be extremely enthusiastic about this program and help educate all players on their team as well as opposing teams what the STOP sign means. PCIM encourages parents and players to fully participate and embrace all aspects of the program implementation and spread awareness of this campaign to make our game even safer for all players.

YOUTH SPORTS ALLIANCE OPPORTUNITY DRAWING TICKETS

As you may be aware, the Park City Ice Miners receive a significant amount of funds from YSA each year. The primary fundraiser is the JANS Winter Welcome. The event raises funds through the JWW Event (Oct 28), silent auctions and a live auction at the event and the sale of the opportunity drawing tickets. We receive a percentage of the funds the entire event raises.  Our organization also receives 100% of the funds raised through the sale of the opportunity drawing tickets. We ask that each player sell 2 tickets. We are also offering a $75 Total Hockey Gift card for every player that sells 4 tickets. (if your player sells 8+ tickets, they get a gift card for every 4 tickets sold).  The tickets can be purchased online or hard copy tickets can be obtained through your team manager. We are also going to provide opportunities for players to sell tickets at certain Park City Locations, for example, the Park Silly Market on Sundays.  A sign-up genius will be set up for players to take advantage of these opportunities.

To purchase opportunity drawing tickets, please go to www.ywsa.org and scroll down to “purchase opportunity drawing tickets” and follow the instructions on the link. If you have specific questions, you can email Scott Slomiak at .
