Parent's Code of Conduct

  1. Do not force an unwilling child to participate in sports.

  2. Remember children are involved in organized sports for their enjoyment, not yours.

  3. Encourage your child to always play by the rules.

  4. Teach your child that honest effort is more important than victory so that the result of each game is accepted without undue disappointment.

  5. Turn defeat to victory by helping your child work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship. Never ridicule or yell at your child for making a mistake or losing a competition.

  6. Remember that children learn best by example. Applaud good plays by your team and by members of the opposing team.

  7. Do not publicly question the official’s judgment and never their honesty.

  8. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s sporting activities.

  9. Recognize the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give their time and resources to provide recreational activities for your child.

  10. Set an example by supporting and respecting your child’s coach. When problems arise, communicate on an individual basis. Public comments are not appropriate.
