Parents’ Code of Ethics

Parents’ Code of Ethics

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