Parent Code of Conduct


As a parent or legal guardian of a child in youth sports, I understand that I play an important role in the process. I understand that I, my family members, and my friends that attend Blessed Ballers Flag Football activities are responsible for proper conduct at Blessed Ballers Flag Football activities. I understand that if my family members, my friends, or I act improperly at Blessed Ballers Flag Football activities, said person(s) may be asked to leave the facilities and may be suspended from attendance at any following game or as part of a Blessed Ballers Flag Football program. Multiple such violations may result in forfeiture of the privilege to attend all remaining games or Blessed Ballers Flag Football programs. Sports are intended to develop the following "six pillars of character":

*Trustworthiness     *Respect *Responsibility        *Fairness *Caring   *Good Citizenship


·         Children participate in sports to have fun and that the games are for the children and not the adults.

·         My family, my guests, and I will be positive role models for all of the children and will encourage good sportsmanship by showing respect, courtesy, and positive support for all players, coaches, officials, and spectators at every game, practice, and team activity.

·         My family, my guests, and I will not engage in unsportsmanlike conduct with officials, coaches, players, or parents such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.

·         I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without hostility or violence.

·         I will teach my child that doing one's best is more important than winning, so that my child may not feel defeated by the outcome of a game or by his/her performance.

·         I will not ridicule 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 will honor the games and show respect for all involved including coaches, players, opponents, other spectators, umpires, and referees.

·         I will not coach my child or other players during games or practices, unless I am an official team coach.

·         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 understand that I am not allowed to be on the field (if outside field) nor on the turf (if inside field) at any time and that only rostered coaches and players are allowed on the field / turf areas).

·         I understand that youth sports are a commitment by myself and my child, to the others on the team.  In the event my player will be unable to play, I will notify my coach / team manager in advance.
