Support all the players in your child's squad. Do not criticize any of the players at any time.
Do not criticize the opponents, their parents or their officials. Do not communicate with the other team’s parents in a way that could be understood as confrontational. Do not enforce the code of conduct rules and/or other rules on the opposition. If you think that the other team is not following the conduct rules, bring it to your coach’s attention. Do not cheer in a way that will negatively affect and/or distract the players on either team.
Never audibly dispute a referee’s decision. If you verbally abuse or shout at the referee you are breaking the rules of the game and risk a negative outcome for the team (stoppage of play or forfeit) and/or being asked to leave the game.
Parents must not coach from the sideline during matches or training. Leave this to the manager/coach or you may cause confusion and erode your child’s confidence.
Parents must not enter the field of play.
Do not criticize your child’s coach to your child or other parents. If you are not happy with the coach you should raise the issue with the coach at an appropriate time and place and in a very pleasant and non-confrontational manner.
Parents that do not follow these guidelines could be asked to leave the game and/or be expelled from the league. Unruly behavior will not be tolerated.
