See RRHC House Rules:  “Reston Raider House Program games are played and officiated in accordance with USA Hockey Official Playing Rules.  USA Hockey Official Playing Rules are the rules of play unless they conflict with a House Rule, in which case the House Rule takes precedence. . . .  All game, match and gross misconduct penalties will be reviewed by the Standards of Conduct Committee (aka Discipline Committee or “DC”) and appropriate action will be taken in accordance with, but not in conflict with, the USA Hockey Official Playing rules and the Reston Raider Code of Ethics.”

*Players who have (1) accumulated more than 20 penalties in the course of a season, (2) injured two (2) or more players over the course of a season or (3) received two (2) or more fighting major penalties in a season may not register for subsequent Raider programs unless the DC has reviewed and recommended reinstatement to the Board of Directors.  Coaches may caucus at the end of the season to identify additional players of concern to the DC, who should require DC review/recommendation to BOD for future Raider programs.

Bantam and Midget Coaches shall inform their players of this policy before commencement of the season. Families agreed to this language at registration:  REMOVAL FROM HOUSE PROGRAM FOR RECKLESS/ DANGEROUS PLAY: I agree that my child's participation in the RRHC House League is conditioned on his/her abiding by the letter and spirit of the rules of USA Hockey as they apply to on-ice and locker room participation.  I understand that reckless or dangerous behavior by my child will be grounds for immediate removal from the RRHC House League, without refund.  Reckless play will solely be determined by the RRHC and is not subject to appeal.
