I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
I will encourage my child to respect the rights of other players, coaches, fans and officials.

I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard.

I will never question the official’s judgement or honesty in public.
I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children’s sporting activities.
I will respect and show appreciation for the trained volunteer coaches who give their time to provide sport activities for my child, understanding that I have a responsibility to be part of my child’s development.

I will educate and encourage my child to treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless race, creed, colour, sex or ability.
I will demand an environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sporting events.
I will have respect for all facilities and equipment used in the sport.
I will respect all board members and their decisions.
Inappropriate or disrespectful parent behaviour may result in the expulsion of my child from the game.
