Rec Department Guidelines
RESPONSIBILITIES OF AN ATHLETE:
- Always play as a team; win as a team, lose as a team. - NEVER criticize the officials, opposing team, its players, coaches, or fans by words or gestures. - Treat all members of your team (including coaches) with the same respect you would like to be treated. - Respect your coach’s placement of athletes on the field/court. Refrain from telling teammates where you feel they should be. - NEVER argue with an umpire/referee about the accuracy of a call. - Refrain from commenting on the ability of other players, whether they are on your team or the opposing team. - Be on time for games and practices. Be properly and safely dressed and prepared to play. - The use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited. - When playing a game, it is required you stay in the bench area if you are not on the field/court. - Throwing equipment is prohibited. - Avoid focusing on winning and losing. Remember that the main purposes for playing at this level are to have fun, learn to play in a team setting and develop important skills to be used later on. ____________________________________________________________________________________ RESPONSIBILITIES OF A PARENT:
Parents play a crucial role in the lives of their children. Because of this, it is important you set an example of expected behavior in everything your child does. The following is a list of parental responsibilities:
- Be sure your child is to his/her practice and games on time and that he/she is prepared to play. - NEVER lead your child to believe it is acceptable to make fun of or criticize another player or team. - Emphasize the importance of team unity, as well as respect for the other players and coaches. - NEVER argue with an umpire/referee, coach, or other parent in front of your child. Children are easily influenced and will follow this bad example. - Emphasize the importance of playing to have fun, rather than focusing on the prospect of winning or losing. - Maintain your child’s uniform and teach them to treat the equipment as if it were their own. - Demonstrate a positive attitude throughout the season. Remember, actions speak louder than words.
