Player Code of Conduct
I accept responsibility for my behavior on and off the field. I understand that what I do and say affects my teammates, my club, and other people- either positively or negatively.
I lead courageously and live with integrity by speaking up against injustice and on behalf of others, even when it is difficult or unpopular.
I act with respect toward myself and the people and things around me, including my parents, my coaches, my teammates, my teachers, and my opponents.
I do not put people in boxes according to their race, religion, neighborhood, or abilities. I judge people by the content of their character.
I act with empathy. I try to understand what is going on in the hearts and minds of others and what is causing those feelings so that I can be supportive and encouraging. I ask , ” How can I help you ?”
I serve as a role model at all times by talking politely and acting courteously toward coaches, teammates, opponents, officials. I understand that it is a privilege to represent my family, club, and community as a student-athlete.
I give 100 percent effort to practices, games, and events. I understand that this effort demonstrates my commitment to the team and my respect for my coaches and teammates. When being subbed, I act in a respectful manner to my coaches and my teammates.
I display good sportsmanship. I acknowledge and applaud the efforts of others. I encourage my teammates with positive statements. I refrain from boasting to my teammates and “trash-talking” to members of other teams. I accept defeat graciously by congratulating my opponents on a game well played.
Because I represent my family, club, and team, I abide by the policies, rules, and guidelines of the team, and coaches.
