BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — In the wake of a recent fight between parents and players alike in Tewksbury two weeks ago, Massachusetts Hockey announced Wednesday that they have implemented a "Parent/Spectator Conduct Reporting System," to address poor behavior in the stands.
According to the Mass. Hockey website, the new reporting system will allow individuals who witness abusive actions or hear derogatory language towards officials or players to report incidents directly to Mass. Hockey.
Officials said that they will share any parent or spectator information with the appropriate league and program administrators to address the matters involving their zero-tolerance policy on verbal or physical abuse.
"The system is not intended for reporting any on-ice incidents involving coaches and officials, which are matters handled by the on-ice officials by a separate game reporting system," Mass. Hockey wrote.
Parents or spectators of Mass. youth hockey can register for the reporting system here.
