TRC Code of Conduct

TRC Code of Conduct for Parents, Coaches, and Players

We expect our parents/spectators/coaches and players to comply with the TRC and BCRP codes of conduct and agree to the waiver and release in the registration form. These forms can also be found on the "Forms and Waiver" page of the TRC site. Failure to do so may result in ejection from a game, practice or the Towson Rec Council program, so please read the following documents carefully before registering for TRC programs.

All persons involved with the Towson Recreation Council must adhere to the following Code of Conduct.  I understand that failure to adhere to the Code of Conduct will result in ejection from the program and possible ejection from all TRC programs.

  • I agree to abide by the rules, guidelines, and decisions of the program director, administrators, and coaches. 
  • I will at all times show respect for the rules, opponents, officials, and teammates.  If I disagree with an official or a coach, I will show respect by being silent.  I will never argue with referee or coach.  I will never ridicule or yell at players, coaches, or officials.
  • I will refrain from negative comments about coaches, players, or officials in my child’s presence.
  • I will respect the rights, dignity, and worth of every person regardless of their gender, sex, ability, cultural background, or religion.
  • Parents and players will engage in “No Direction Cheering”* by exercising self control on the sidelines and limiting comments during the game to encouragement for players (from both teams).
  • Parents will send their players to practices and games with the required equipment, and on time.  Players and parents will notify coaches if they must miss a practice or a game.
  • Parents will not intentionally misrepresent a player’s age or ability at any time.
  • I will report to the coach all injuries, special medical conditions (such as asthma) or extenuating circumstances (such as lack of sleep or family crisis) that may affect the player.
  • I will be a positive role model for all players, parents, and coaches.
