CODE OF CONDUCT
We strive to deliver an exceptional experience for both players and parents. To make this possible, we have outlined a player and parent Code of Conduct:
PLAYER CODE OF CONDUCT
Players must ensure their conduct reflects respect, fair play, and sportsmanship. The expectations for players in this organization are as follows:
Showing up to games and practices prepared with all the necessary equipment (shoes, water, ball, jersey) and a positive attitude.
Being an example to your teammates, other players, coaches, and organizations when it comes to respect, sportsmanship, fair play, and cooperation.
Do not engage in any behavior that would endanger the health, safety, or well being of a spectator, player, participant, league officials, or any other attendee.
Always use appropriate language whether it be at practice, during a game, out in the community, and especially on social media.
Do not engage in verbal or physical threats or abuse aimed at any parent, player, participant, league official or any other attendee
Maintain positive interactions with officials and respect the calls.
Be a source of encouragement and support to all players by applauding their efforts and never attempting to isolate or embarrass any players with discouraging or sarcastic remarks
Be a good sport - win with modesty, lose with dignity.
Recognize and appreciate the efforts made by coaches, parents, match officials, and administrators in providing the opportunity for you to play the game and enjoy the sporting environment.
PARENT/GUARDIAN CODE OF CONDUCT
It’s of the utmost importance for parents and guardian(s) to set the standard of excellence when it comes to sportsmanship, respect, and fair play. It is our expectation that parents will:
Affirm your child and their teammates when good character, healthy sportsmanship, and other centered behaviors are displayed. Do not affirm only their athletic performance or a victory.
Serve as role models for our players by talking politely and acting courteously toward coaches, officials, other parents, visiting team parents, and spectators at practices, games, and meetings.
Model good sportsmanship. Acknowledge and applaud the efforts of team members and opponents. Accept defeat graciously by congratulating the members of the opposing team on a game well played. Support the team regardless of how much or how little your son plays or what the win-loss record is.
Encourage your child and his teammates with positive statements, even when they make mistakes.
Refrain from boasting about your child’s accomplishments.
Always use appropriate language at all times.
Have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying, intimidation, or volatile behavior displayed by parents or players.
Conduct themselves in a responsible and respectful manner while in attendance at practices or games and will not attempt to interfere with the efforts of the coaching staff.
