Canadian Parents Fight Coach at WF Hockey Tournament

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

The West Fargo Hockey Association says the team from Winnipeg was disqualified from the Mites Tournament this weekend, after a parent assaulted the opposing team's coach.

The Hockey Association says they have no tolerance for violence, even among spectators.

No charges were filed against the parents. According to the incident report, the officer told the complainant that taking legal action would be complicated with all parties being from another country.

Mike Bernier, a volunteer coach with the WFHA, says his experience has been nothing but positive with support from parents.

"It's been very professional and from what I've seen there's been very little tolerance for parents that create problems," Bernier said.

 

 


 

 

ORIGINAL:

A fight broke out at a tournament in the locker rooms in West Fargo this weekend, but the eight year olds in hockey gear didn't start it. Their parents did.

An incident report filed with the West Fargo Police Department says an officer was called out to Veterans Memorial Arena after the Mites Tournament, where teams from Canada went head to head. The West Fargo Hockey Association asked officers to remove a team from Winnipeg when parents from that team went into another team's locker room and began a physical fight with the coach in front of the children.

Officers say four to five people were involved. No charges were filed.
