Parent Code of Conduct & Player Expectations

Parent Code of Conduct

I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care, and encouragement for my child participating in youth sports by following this Parents' Code of Conduct Pledge.

  • I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or other youth sports event.

  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of a personal desire to win.

  • I will insist that my child play in a safe and healthy environment.

  • I will support coaches and officials working with my child, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

  • I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and will refrain from their use at all youth sports events.

  • I will remember that the game is for youth-not for adults.

  • I will do my very best to make youth sports fun for my child.

  • I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials, with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.

  • I promise to help my child enjoy the youth sports experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectable fan, assisting with coaching, or providing transportation.

  • I will require that my child's coach be trained in the responsibilities of being a youth sports coach and that the coach upholds the Coaches' Code of Conduct.
