TRC Code of Conduct

All parents, spectators, coaches and players must abide by the following code of conduct:  

•  I agree to abide by the rules, guidelines, and decisions of the program director, administrators, referees 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 a 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 a 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.

Failure to do so may result in penalties, including but not limited to ejection from a game,
practice, season, or the ability to attend or enroll in future TRC programs.
