Sportsmanship Code of Conduct

Players

The game of soccer is for the players. SAC expects that the players in our program will always exhibit good sportsmanship and a sense of fair play. Players must understand that, when they participate, they are representatives of their soccer club as well as their team, coaches, parents and community. They should, therefore, act accordingly. All players should adhere to the following code of conduct:

  • Treat all coaches, opponents, teammates, parents, and officials with respect
  • Display self-control in all situations
  • Avoid use of foul or abusive language
  • Always play within the laws of the game (Fair Play).
  • Shake hands with opponents at the conclusion of every game and refrain from such acts that would be considered disrespectful of an opponent.

Parents

Parents can have a significant impact, either positive or negative, on a child before, during and after a match.  Parents must remember that the game is for the children and should be treated accordingly.  Just as coaches and players are expected to exhibit good sportsmanship during the game, parents are expected to refrain from unsporting behavior on the sideline.

Parents are expected to:

  • Maintain a positive sideline demeanor by not berating coaches, referees, or other players.
  • Cheer positively.  Your child’s teammates and opponents are young amateurs, not professionals.  Cheer for good play and fair play on the part of all players.
  • Let the coach, coach no matter how much you disagree with him or her.
  • Act like an adult.  Be positive, encourage all of the players, respect others and be a spectator.

Parents are expected to refrain from:

  • Yelling directives at players and/or making rude or profane comments from the sideline.
  • Coaching from the sideline.
  • Providing negative encouragement to players (e.g., you’re not trying hard enough).
  • Badgering/berating the referee and/or aggressively disputing calls and non-calls.
  • Badgering/berating opposing players and/or their coach.
  • Being critical of their own team’s play or that of an individual player on the team.
