IMG_4207MORGAN FAMILY YMCA

In YMCA Youth Sports Leagues, children develop and grow as athletes, challenge themselves through healthy competition, forge new friendships, and learn values that they can use both on and off the field.

WHAT MAKES YOUTH SPORTS AT THE Y SPECIAL?

• VALUES-BASED: Coaches build their instruction on a foundation of the Y's core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

• INCLUSIVE: We believe every child deserves a chance to learn, grow, and thrive through youth sports participation.

• SKILL DEVELOPMENT: Players learn to work as part of a team, develop a winning mindset, and practice to improve their skills.

PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

This is the code of conduct we hold all parents to while watching their children’s practices and games. We ask that you try your best to uphold this code, so that everyone can enjoy their experience. As a YMCA parent, we ask that you:

  • Encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or event.
  • Place the emotional and physical well being of the players ahead of your personal desire to win.
  • Demand a drug, alcohol, and tobacco free sports event and agree to assist by refraining from their use at all youth sports events.
  • Ask your child to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials with respect.
  • Promise to help your child enjoy the youth sports experience by fostering good sportsmanship, assisting in coaching, being a respectful fan, and modeling that behavior for your child.
  • Have your child participate in as many practices and games as possible while providing proper supervision for all of the children I bring to practices and games.
  • Attend practices and games in case of an emergency.
  • Be a positive role model for your child and the other players on his/her team.
  • Not use profanity, or vulgar speech while observing your child’s activities.
  • Not coach your child, or other children, during games if you are not an official coach.
  • Keep off of the playing field at all times, unless specifically told otherwise by an official or coach.
  • Not bring a dog or other animal to practices or games.
  • Resolve conflicts without regressing to hostility or violence.
  • Not encourage any behavior that could be dangerous to your child or the other children.
  • Not taunt, heckle, argue with, any coach, official, or opposing player during the course of your child’s games/practices.

Failure to comply with this code of conduct may result in your losing privilege of attending YMCA youth sports events.
