2015 PLAYER CODE OF ETHICS

I hereby pledge to be positive about my youth sports experiences and accept responsibility for my participation by following the Players' Code of Ethics pledge:

I will encourage good sportsmanship from fellow players, coaches, officials and parents at every game and practice demonstrating good sportsmanship.

I will attend every practice and game that I can, and will notify my coach if I cannot.

I
will expect to receive a fair and equal amount of playing time.


I
will do my very best to listen and learn from my coaches.


I
will treat my coaches, other players, officials and fans with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or abilities and I will expect to be treated accordingly.


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


I
deserve to have fun during my sports experience and will alert parents or coaches if it stops being fun.


I
deserve to play in an environment that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and expect adults to refrain from their use at all youth sporting 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 encourage my parent to be involved with my team in some capacity, because it is important to me.


I
will do my very best in school.


I
will remember that sports participation is an opportunity to learn and have fun.
