Code of Conduct

League Expectations for Parents / Guardians

I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child while participating in League activities and pledge to abide by the following Code of Conduct.

I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and other spectators at all League functions.

I will do my best to ensure the timely attendance of my child at all practices and games, realizing this is not only necessary for the safety and development of my child, but also is a means by which to instill confidence, responsibility and enthusiasm in the players and participants.

I will be appreciative of the fact that all equipment issued is the property of the local community football organization and that it must be maintained, cleaned and returned in good working condition in a timely manner after the last game of the season, or my child's discontinuance of active league participation.

I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of my personal desire to win.

I will insist that my child participate in an environment that is healthy and safe.

I will respect and abide by League rules, policies, regulations and administrative considerations relative to my, and my child's, participation in any and all League functions.

I will support the coaches and officials working with my child, in order to encourage and facilitate a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

I will direct any concerns to my respective CIYFL town rep before contacting the head coach directly.

I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all League functions.

I will remember that the game is for the youth participants not the adults.

I will direct my child to treat other players, coaches, spectators and officials with courtesy and respect.

I will help and assist my child in enjoying the youth sports experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectful fan, assisting with League activities or providing transportation.

I acknowledge and welcome these responsibilities as outlined and have ascribed my signature hereto indicating my support, full understanding and intent to comply with the same.
