MISSION 9’ers ATHLETE CODE OF CONDUCT
The Athletic Code of Conduct outlines the behavior that Mission Minor Football Association expects from its players. Please read the following items to see the type of behavior we expect from all athletic participants at Mission Niners events.
Organized sports provide the perfect arena to learn about life. What athletes experience and learn in that arena should become part of a strong foundation from which to build the rest of their lives. We look forward to your involvement in the Mission Niners’ Football program.
Athletes who participate in organized sports have a tremendous opportunity for growth. Athletes develop their strength, coordination, endurance, and specific skills related to the sport they play. But athletes would be missing the greatest gift sports have to offer if they limited themselves to physical prowess. Athletes who gain the most from sports have allowed their minds and spirits, as well as their bodies, to grow as they experience the wins and losses of organized sports. Those who have challenged themselves to be the best they can be, not just in the game, but during practice as well, will develop characteristics they will use throughout their lifetime. Athletics, if allowed, will teach young people about never giving up, about taking pride in all they do, about feeling joy or empathy for others, and about making friends. Most of all, sports will teach athletes to believe in themselves and their abilities.
Mission 9’ers Football Code of Conduct for Athletes:
- I will always be a good sport, whether winning or losing.
- I will always show respect for all players, coaches, and officials.
- I will never use obscene language or gestures.
- I will support my team in a positive way, whether playing or on the sidelines.
- I will understand that I am a role model for others.
- I will give my best effort and attention at practice and during the games.
- I will play fair, and follow the rules of the game.
- I will respect all opponents and their effort.
- I understand that the amount of time I participate in each contest will be determined by the coach.
- I will be humble and realize that my individual accomplishments are only possible because of my teammates.
MISSION 9’ers PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT
Parents are vital to the development of young athletes. Whether sitting in the stands or helping out as a volunteer, parents must set a positive example. Parents and adults involved in youth sports should be models of good sportsmanship and lead by example on and off the playing field.
Mission 9’ers Football has initiated the following Parent Code of Conduct:
- Give constructive criticism during a private moment, never in front of other parents, players, officials, spectators, etc.
- Support your coach and refrain from excessive “sideline coaching” from the stands.
- Refrain from using profanity.
- Abide by a doctor’s decision in all matters of players health and injuries and physical ability to play.
- Accept the decisions of officials on the field as being fair and called to the best ability of the officials. Parents must stay off the field and remain under control in order to set a good example for players and other spectators.
- Do not criticize an opposing team, its players, fans, coaches or team by words or gestures.
- Support the coaches, players and officials and help teach the value of commitment to the teams, sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play.
- Inappropriate behavior is cause for immediate ejection from the stands. Repeat offenses will result in being barred from future games and league sponsored activities.
- Parents will not encourage their child or any other person to engage in unsportmanship conduct with any coach, parent, player, participants, officials or any other attendee.
