The Parent’s digital signature on the registration agreement on the Player’s electronic Recreational or Competitive Registration Form for the current year constitutes the full agreement of the Player’s parents AND of any other personal guests to abide by the following Code of Conduct at the field:
The expectation and attitudes of Parents/Guardians and Spectators have a significant bearing on a child’s attitude towards:
- Other players, referees, coaches and managers, and spectators
- Their long-term enjoyment of the game of soccer
The Kleiburg Nobleton Soccer Club (KNSC) will ensure that Parents/Guardians and Spectators within the club are always positive and encouraging towards all of the players—not just their own—and will follow these policies themselves and encourage others to:
- Never engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, parent or player, such as booing, taunting or using profane language or gestures.
- Respect the authority of referees and coaches; never criticizing, contradicting or interfering with referees or coaches at the field; and speak with coaches privately regarding any concerns.
- Demonstrate and encourage good sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by expressing positive support for all players, coaches and officials.
- Adhere to the policies of all facilities including: water only (no other beverage or food) on artificial turf; no pets anywhere at schools or other fields that do not allow them; no parking in prohibited areas.
Additionally, for Parents/Guardians of Players under 18:
- Remember that youth soccer programs are for the players, not for parents and other adults.
- Teach children to play by the rules, and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility.
- Acknowledge that, in children’s leagues, team coaches and club officials are not responsible for the supervision of any child.
I acknowledge that if I fail to abide by the rules in the Parent Code of Conduct, I may be subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following:
- Verbal warning by official, head coach, and/or head of league organization
- Written warning
- Parental game suspension with written documentation of incident kept on file by organizations involved
- Game forfeit through the official or coach (internal league)
- Parental season suspension
