I will be remember that young people play sports for THEIR
enjoyment, not to entertain me.
I will not have unrealistic expectations and will understand that
doing ones best is as important as winning. I understand that ridiculing an athlete
for making a mistake is not acceptable behavior.
I will respect the officials decisions and will encourage
all participants to do the same.
I will respect and show appreciation for the coaches and
understand that they have given their time to provide sport activities for our young
I will encourage athletes and coaches to play by the rules and to
resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
I will show respect for my teams opponents because I realize
there would be no game without them.
I will not use bad language and will not harass athletes, coaches,
officials or other spectators.
I will always show good sportsmanship since young people learn
best by example.
