Code of Conduct

Conduct

The league’s expectations from participants and parents

as well as sportsmanship guidelines for players, parents and spectators.

 

Player’s Code:

Be on time for practices and games.

You will be representing our community, your family, your team, your coach and yourself.  Conduct yourself with honor and dignity at all times.

Respect the officials, your coach(s), your teammates and your opponents.

Put forth your best effort at all times.  You are playing for yourself and for your team.

Be a humble winner and a gracious loser.  Learn to love playing the game, no matter the outcome.

Follow the rules of the game and accept the decisions of the officials with grace.

 

Parent’s and Coach’s Code:

Show your child responsibility by having them to practices and games on time.

You will be representing our community, our team and your child.  Conduct yourself with honor and dignity at all times.

Respect the officials, the coach(s), other parents and all players.

Focus on improvement and best effort, not the outcome or the score.

Be an example in your words and your actions.  Criticism can hurt more than it can help.

Refrain from comparing your child or your child’s team with another; they are all growing and learning at their own pace.

Teach not only the rules of the game but also the love of the game.

 

Spectator’s Code:

You will be representing our community, our team and your child.  Conduct yourself with honor and dignity at all times.

Respect the officials, the coach(s), other parents and all players.

Remember that officials are a representative of fairness and sportsmanship.

Remember that your viewpoint of a call may be biased; most calls made by an official are correct and poor calls seldom affect the outcome of the game.

The players on both teams are children; young boys and young girls.  With limited experience and an abundance of enthusiasm, they may make mistakes.  They need encouragement and praise.

Focus on improvement and best effort, not the outcome or the score.
