CODE OF ETHICS FOR PARENTS
LUTHERVILLE-TIMONIUM RECREATION COUNCIL

I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child participating in youth sports by following this code of ethics.

• I will do my best to make youth sports fun for my child.

• I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for players and coaches of both teams and all officials at every game, practice or youth sports event.

• I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of any personal desire to win. I will be realistic about my child’s physical ability.

• I will assist in providing a safe and healthy environment in which my child can play.

• I will attempt to have my child attend every game and practice. I will make certain my child arrives on time and is picked up on time. I will notify the manager/coach if my child is unable to attend.

• I will provide support for coaches and officials working with my child to provide a positive enjoyable experience for all.

• I will demand a drug, alcohol and tobacco free sports environment for my child and agree to assist by refraining from their use at all youth sports events.

• I will remember that the game is for children, not adults.

• I will instruct my child to treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed or ability.

• I will promise to help my child enjoy the youth sports experience within my personal constraints by assisting with coaching, being a respectful fan, providing transportation or whatever else I am capable of doing

Let the players play,
Let the coaches coach,
Let the officials officiate,
Let the fans cheer ENTHUSIASTICALLY.
