Fair Play Code


Fair Play Code For Athletes

  1. I will play by the rules and in the spirit of the game.
  2. I will control my temper. Fighting and "mouthing off" spoils the activity for everybody.
  3. I will respect my opponents.
  4. I will do my best to be a true team player.
  5. I will remember that winning isn't everything.  Having fun, improving skills, making friends, working hard and doing my best are also important.
  6. I will acknowledge all good plays/performances, those of my team and of my opponents.
  7. I will remember that coaches and officials are there to help me. I will accept their decisions and show them respect.
Fair Play Code For Coaches
  1. I will teach my athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents.
  2. I will ensure that all athletes get equal instruction, support and playing time.
  3. I will not ridicule or yell at my athletes for making mistakes or performing poorly. I will remember that children play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves.
  4. I will make sure equipment and facilities are safe and match the athlete’s ages and abilities.
  5. I will remember that children need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example.
Fair Play Code For Parents
  1. I will remember that my child plays sports for his or her enjoyment, not for mine.
  2. I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  3. I will teach my child that doing one's best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game/event.
  4. I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard.
  5. I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
  6. I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays/performances by both my child's team and their opponents.
  7. I will never question the official's judgment or honesty in public.
  8. I will support all their efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children's sporting activities.
  9. I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteer coaches who give their time to provide sport activities for my child.
