Code of Conduct for Parents

The primary objective of the Queen of All Saints athletic programs is to provide a fun, positive, safe learning experience for everyone involved. To accomplish this objective we will need the assistance and understanding of every parent, guardian, and fan. Our primary responsibility is to develop good citizens and athletes, and to instill a passion for the game in our players. Our success in achieving such objectives and responsibilities are not measured by wins and losses, rather in what we teach the players in terms of sportsmanship and fair play, and always offering positive reinforcement.

As a parent/guardian:

  • I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or other sports event.
  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of the athlete ahead of personal desire to win.
  • I will insist that athletes play in a safe and healthy environment.
  • I will treat each athlete participating as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development of the athlete.
  • I will be reasonable in my demands on my child and all athletes and I will always remember that the players are children, not miniature professional athletes.
  • I will support coaches and officials working with my child in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.
  • I will always exhibit proper and ethical behavior while interacting with players, coaches, officials. And fellow parents at practices and games.
  • I understand that the use of foul or abusive language is strictly prohibited.
  • I will do my very best to make athletics fun for my child.
  • I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials with respect and dignity regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.
  • I promise to help my child enjoy his/her athletic experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectful fan, assisting and supporting the coaches and officials, or providing transportation.
  • I will remember that I am a sports parent and supporter, and that the game is for the athlete and not adults.
