“Youth Sports should be fun for players, coaches and parents”
WYL believes that all of our children should be allowed to develop a love for each sport they participate in while also learning the value of sportsmanship. With this in mind, WYL firmly believes that all parents and coaches play an important role in our programs and that young athletes learn valuable lessons watching the behaviors and attitudes of the adults who supervise their activities. Conversely, WYL also recognizes that sports are competitive by nature. Therefore, the WYL Board pledges to create a positive learning experience where our children learn the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship while at the same time learning to play and respect the game.
Please make sure your read and adhere to the following WYL Code of Conduct Policy at all times.
Parents and Coaches Code of Conduct:
I will have my child arrive on time for all games and practices and let the coach know in advance if my child will be absent, arriving late or leaving early.
I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches and officials at every game or practice.
I will not engage in any type of physical or verbal abuse of any official, player, coach or spectator at any time.
I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child and other children ahead of my personal desire to win and keep in mind that the game is for our children – not for adults.
I will insist that my child and other children play in a safe and healthy environment.
I will support coaches and officials working with my child in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.
I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free of drugs, tobacco, alcohol and will refrain from their use at all WYL events.
I will insist that my child treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed or ability.
I understand that in order for my child to be eligible to play I must complete all required applications and pay the required membership fees per WYL.
Any concerns about how the league is run, how coaches are coaching or referees are officiating should be referred to the team Head Coach first and if not satisfied then to the WYL President.
I have read and understand this WYL Code of Conduct as described above. I am aware that any failure to abide by this Code of Conduct will subject myself (and my child) to suspension from all WYL activities. I agree that all decisions in these matters made by the WYL Board are final and binding. Warwick Youth Lacrosse Club
