  2. Without limiting the application of the Australian Hockey Code of Conduct or any right to terminate your membership under the AHO's governing rules, the AHO may terminate your membership registration at any time, including if your participation or behaviour interferes with any other participant's safety or enjoyment of hockey, subject to any requirements of the AHO's constitution.
