Parents Code of Conduct

  1. Help your child learn to enjoy sports and develop skills that they are capable of performing. Practice with and help your child so that they will have an opportunity for skill improvement through active participation.
  2. Be realistic about the strengths and weaknesses of your child so that you may place them in situations where they have the maximum opportunity for success. Do not relive your athletic past through your child.
  3. Treat each player, coach, official and parent with respect and dignity.
  4. Accept the decisions of officials without showing inappropriate emotions.
  5. Understand and respect the differences between parental roles and coaching roles.
  6. Uphold the authority of officials and coaches who are working with your child. Assist them when possible and use good judgment if you disagree with them.
  7. Keep negative comments to yourself. Express concerns only to the coach and in a straightforward, fair, and objective manner. Inform the coaches of issues and conflicts as soon as they arise.
  8. Focus on performance which can be controlled by the athlete and not on winning or losing an outcome which is frequently outside the athlete’s control. Positively reinforce improved skills.
  9. Decrease the pressure to win; avoid making the outcome of the game bigger than life. As a game becomes blown out of proportion, a youngster’s self-esteem can become tied to winning or losing. Make sure your children know that, win or lose you will love them even if you are disappointed with their performance.
  10. Help your child set realistic goals. Sport’s primary value is the opportunity for self- development. The probability of achieving lasting fame and glory is low; however, their experiences allow them to develop life-long values and self-esteem!
