Parent Code of Conduct
The Sports Compliance Company has implemented the following Parent Code of Conduct to ensure parental involvement supports a positive and healthy environment for all children. Parents should read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in programs we administer compliance for.
The health and wellbeing of all our athletes is #1. Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any competition or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be suspended from the following event.
Repeat violations may cause a multiple competition suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending team activities.
- That the emotional health and wellbeing of each athlete is paramount, and I will not negatively comment on another athlete’s ability or point out their mistakes.
- I will inform the coach of any injury that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others. I understand I have to communicate any injuries with management directly.
- Each SCC-trained coach has been directed to utilize the best player for the position at all times. Decisions are made for the best-interest of the team and ultimately for safety. I understand that my child will chage positions throughout the sport season. I understand that at elite levels my child may be placed as an alternate. The coaches employed by each sports organization are the only people allowed to make decisions about player positions and player utilization, and I will cooperate with their decisions.
- I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the competition is for youth, not adults.
- I will learn the rules of the competition and the policies of the league or governing body (if applicable).
- 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 athletes, coaches, officials and spectators at every competition, practice or other sporting event.
- I, and my guests, will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, athlete, or parent, such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
- I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
- I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility, bullying, or violence.
- I will demand that my child treat other athletes, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
- 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 competition/game or his/her performance.
- I understand that progress is not linear. I will praise my child for trying their best.
- I will never mock or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.
- I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I understand that the wins have a greater chance of occurring when all athletes feel comfortable making mistakes. Moments of what looks like a failure can teach incredible lessons and even drive significant progress.
- I will promote the emotional and physical wellbeing of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
- I will respect the officials/ coaches and their authority during competitions and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the competition event site, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
- 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.
- I will refrain from coaching my child or other athletes during competition, tournaments, and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.
