Code of Conduct for Student-Athletes

I pledge to:

 

  • Be respectful of my coaches and trainers. I will refer to them as “Coach”, “Mr.” Mrs./Ms.” or “Dr.” where applicable and give them my undivided attention during all discussions and drills.

 

  • Be respectful to all other participants in the camp or group activity regardless of age, gender, race, background or school.

 

  • Be respectful of the grounds where we are training.

 

  • Control my emotions. Foul language, verbal abuse, threats or physical violence will not be tolerated and I understand it can/may be reason for my immediate dismissal of the current camp/group activity without any refund and restriction from any future camp/group activity.  I fully accept any disciplinary action by the coaches if I use foul language or verbal abuse without any further comment or discussion.

 

  • Work hard on every drill.  I realize I am here to improve and I can only do that by giving my best effort and attention. 

 

  • Not utilize any illegal, banned or controlled substances to either help or harm my athletic performance.

 

 

 

Code of Conduct for Parents of Student-Athletes

I pledge to:

  • Encourage my student-athlete child to participate to the best of their ability.

 

  • Understand that I may be allowed to watch camp/group activities from a pre-determined area or distance. This viewing is a privilege and not a right and may not be available for any part or all of the current camp/group activity or any future camp/group activity.

 

  • I will not interfere with any Coach’s decision or drill.  I understand I am paying professionals with a great deal of experience to best teach and coach my student-athlete.

 

  • Refrain from coaching, yelling or talking with my student-athlete child, in either a positive or negative form, while any camp or group activity is in session.

 

  • Encourage my student-athlete child to follow the rules and code of conduct along with the direction of the coaches.

 

  • Remember that the student-athletes are involved in the camp/group activity for their enjoyment and benefit, not mine.

 

  • Control my emotions. Foul language, verbal abuse, threats or physical violence towards any coach, my student-athlete child or other participants and their parents will not be tolerated and will be reason for immediate dismissal of me and my student-athlete child from the current camp/group activity without any refund and restriction of my student-athlete child from any future camp/group activity.

 

  • If I disagree with a certain aspect that is being taught in the camp, I will address this with a coach outside of training time.  After discussion with the coach, if I still do not agree with the  technique/drill/method being taught, I understand I can withdraw my student-athlete from the camp. I understand that the coaches are using the latest in functional training based on the latest valid research and training methods and this may conflict with my expectations and experience.

 

  • Discuss the actions of any other parent that is in violation of this code with the coaches.  I will not ignore other parents that run afoul of the code, but I will not take any action myself.

 

Are you a good sports parent or a nightmare sports parent.
