I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child participating in youth sports by following this Parents' Code of Ethics pledge:

I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or other youth sports event.

I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of my personal desire to win.

I will insist that my child play in a safe and healthy environment.

I will require that my child's coach be trained in the responsibilities of being a youth sports coach and that the coach upholds the Coaches' Code of Ethics.

I will support coaches and officials working with my child, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

I will place my trust in the coaches to access the talent of my player and employ those talents where they see fit to benefit the team.

I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all youth sports events.

I understand that the GCPFL has a zero tolerance policy for profanity, and will adhere to the ramifications if I violate this policy.

I will remember that the game is for the youth, not adults.

I will do my very best to make youth sports fun for my child.

I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.

I will implement and enforce the national standards for youth sports.

I promise to keep informed about current issues involving youth sports programs.
