Chargers Youth Program - Parent Code of Conduct
 
Preamble
The essential elements of character building and ethics in sports are embodied in the
concept of sportsmanship and six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility,
fairness, caring, and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when
competition reflects these "six pillars of character."
 
I therefore agree:
 
1. I will not force my child to participate in sports.
 
2. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for
    youth, not adults.
 
3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the
    safety of my child or the safety of others.
 
4. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.
 
5. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage
    sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive
    support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or
    sporting event.
 
6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with
    any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting, refusing to
    shake hands, or using profane language or gestures.
 
7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health
    and well-being of the athletes.
 
8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting
    to hostility or violence.
 
9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators
    with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
 
10. I will teach my child that doing one's best is more important than winning, so that
      my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her
      performance.
 
11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child
      feel like a winner every time.
 
12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake
      or losing a competition.
 
13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child
      over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competition in the lower age
      groups.
 
14. I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any
      personal desire I may have for my child to win.
 
15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never
      question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to
      speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
 
16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco,
      and alcohol, and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
 
17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices,
      unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.dd Content...
