CODE OF CONDUCT FOR PARENTS

Given that:

Sports have enormous potential to contribute to personal health, balance, and development;

My child's wellbeing and fulfillment are a priority far more important than performing and winning;

As the parent of a young athlete, my words and actions show that:

01

I understand that my child plays sports for his or her own pleasure and not for my own.

02

I treat victory as one of the pleasures of playing sports, I avoid dramatizing defeat, and I recognize that making mistakes is part of the learning process.

03

I respect coaches and the volunteer work they do.

04

I understand that officials have a tough job and respect their decisions.

05

I recognize good performance, whether in my child or other competitors.

06

I accept my child's limitations and place undue expectations on him or her.

07

I agree to learn and understand the rules so that ignorance does not bias my judgment against the coaches' and officials' decisions.

08

I do not treat young athletes as miniature adult athletes.

09

I instill the values of respect, discipline, effort, and fair play in my child.

10

I neither tolerate nor encourage physical or psychological violence.

11

I encourage my child to develop his or her abilities and sportsmanship.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS/PARTNERS
