Parent Code of Conduct

Parents of soccer players have a responsibility to:

  1. Encourage your child and other participants within the club to abide by the rules and, in general, emphasize sportsmanship ahead of winning.
  2. Explain players’ code of conduct to your children and encourage them to follow it.
  3. Encourage your child to play fairly and to the best of his/her ability and, when he/she does so, to provide praise and encouragement regardless of the results of those efforts
  4. Encourage your child to respect his/her teammates, coaches, team manager, referees, and opponents.
  5. Encourage your child to refrain from dangerous play during games and practices.
  6. Cheering for your child is great, but please refrain from coaching from the sidelines or near the goal.
  7. Refrain from criticism of coaches, referees, or opponents during games and in the presence of your child or other children. Constructive criticism, when you feel necessary, should be directed towards your teams’ coaches in private.
  8. When able, assist with tasks as requested by coaches or managers (e.g., putting nets away after games).
  9. Ensure attendance at games and practices and if absences are unavoidable, to give adequate notice to coaches or manager.
  10. Complete and update (as necessary) player’s medical information sheet.
