EVERGREEN PARK YOUTH  CODE OF CONDUCT

We, the Evergreen Park Stallions Athletic Organization, have implemented the following Youth Code of Conduct.

Any youth guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the facility and be suspended from the following game.

Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of all games.

Preamble

The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:

• Trustworthiness,

• Respect,

• Responsibility,

• Fairness,

• Caring, and

• Good Citizenship.

The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

3. I will not engage in or encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and wellbeing of any            players, coaches, officials, or spectators.

4. I will learn the rules of the game. I will play by the rules and resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

5. I will treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

6. I understand that doing one’s best is more important than winning.

7. I will praise my teammates for competing fairly and trying hard.

8. I will never ridicule or yell at any participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

9. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at          the game field.
