  • I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or of others.
  • I will learn the rules of the game and policies of the league.
  • I will be a positive role model for my child, and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy – and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, spectators at every game practice, or other sporting events.
  • I will not engage in any unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent, such as booing and taunting, refusing to shake hands, or using profane language or gestures.
