Junior Crusaders Girls Basketball Code of Conduct

  • I will not force my child into sports.
  • I will remember that children participate to have fun, and the game is for them.
  • 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.
  • I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well-being of the athletes.
  • I will teach my child to play by the rules.
  • I will demand that my child treat players, coaches, officials, and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, sex, or ability.
  • I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
  • I will never 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 also de-emphasize games and competition in lower age groups.
  • I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of my personal desire I may have for my child to win.
  • I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak to coaches at an agreed-upon time and place.
  • I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and I will refrain from their use.
  • I will refrain from “coaching” unless I am an official coach.
