Code of Conduct for Parents and Spectators

Parents and players are responsible for the conduct of their guests.

  1. Remember that young people participate for their enjoyment and benefit, not yours.
  2. Respect the decisions of officials and teach players to do the same. Never ridicule or scold a player for making a mistake.
  3. Do not use foul language or harass players, coaches or officials. Believe that referees, just as coaches and players, are attempting to do their best.
  4. Understand that your attitude can influence the players, coaches, and other spectators.
  5. The use of violence in any form will be condemned and result in an automatic ejection from the game.
  6. Learn the rules of the game and the policies of the organization.
  7. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  8. Make sure your child attends practices and games. Practices are as important as games. Children who don’t show up for practice and/or games are letting everyone down. If you know your child will be unable to attend a practice or game, give the coach as much advance notice as you can to enable proper planning.
  9. Please report all injuries, special medical conditions (such as asthma) or extenuating circumstances (such as family crisis) that may affect the player.
  10. Send your child ready to play with the uniform/shirt provided. Make sure the player has cleats and shin-guards.  If it is not possible to arrive early due to work/family commitments, kindly advise the coach to help with practice/game planning.
  11. During games, parents and spectators are to watch the games on opposite side of the field from the players and coaches.
