Parent Code of Conduct

Parent Code of Conduct

We, the Conejo Valley Little League, have implemented
the following Sport Parent Code of Conduct for the
important message it holds about the proper role of
parents in supporting their child in sports. Parents should
read, understand and sign this form prior to their children
participating in our league.

Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or
practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be
suspended from the following game. Repeat violations
may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season
forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.

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.”
I therefore agree:

1. I will not force my child to participate in sports
2. I will remember that children participate to have fun
and that the game is for youth, not adults.

3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or
ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the
safety of others.

4. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of
the league.

5. I (and my guests) 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 and spectators
at every game, practice or other sporting event.

6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of
unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach,
player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing
to shake hands; or using profane language
or gestures.

7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices
that would endanger the health and well being of
the athletes.

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

9. I will demand that my child treat other players,
coaches, officials and spectators with respect
regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more
important than winning, so that my child will never
feel defeated by the outcome of a game or
his/her performance.

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

12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other
participants for making a mistake or losing a

13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and
how they benefit my child over winning. I will also
de-emphasize games and competition in the lower
age groups.

14. I will promote the emotional and physical wellbeing
of the athletes ahead of any personal desire
I may have for my child to win.

15. 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 with coaches at an agreed upon time
and place.

16. 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.

17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other
players during games and practices, unless I am
one of the official coaches of the team.
