I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflict withoutresorting to hostility or violence.
I will teach my child that doing one’s best is as important as winning so thatmy child will never feel defeated by the outcome of the game.

I will remember that children learn by example. I will applaud good plays by both my child’s team and their opponents. I will not be critical of, or embarrass any player, including opposition players.
I will never question the official’s judgment or honesty in public. I recognize that officials are being developed in the same manner as players.
