Scituate Youth Soccer Association (SYSA) is committed to provide the youth of our community with the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of soccer while developing their physical, social and emotional well being.
SCITUATE YOUTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION PARENT’S CODE OF CONDUCT
SYSA wants every parent to sit back, relax, and enjoy the game.
Remember you are at the game to support and encourage your child/team and to enjoy the skill and competition. Ridicule and taunting of the other team, officials or fans will not be tolerated and may result in your team being penalized and your removal from the field
Learn the rules of the game, so you may begin to understand the subtleties of game situations. Teach the rules to your children and encourage them to respect them
Show respect for your child’s teammates, coaches and fans
Show respect for your child’s opponents, coaches and their fans
Show respect for the officials. Teach your children to respect the call and the fact that it was made “in the eyes” of another person
Be able to recognize and demonstrate appreciation for outstanding play by either team
The use of profanity is strictly forbidden
The use of alcohol, illegal drugs or controlled substances at a game or practice is strictly forbidden
Be a role model for all players to emulate and use positive actions to reinforce good behavior
Turn defeat into victory by helping your child work towards skill improvement and good sportsmanship. Do not yell at your child for making mistakes or losing a game. Remember that games are learning experiences and that mistakes are often made in the process of improvement
Always support and encourage good sportsmanship regardless of the situation, outcome of the game, the official’s calls, the taunts or conduct of the opponents. Remember to rise above the situation and to always lead the children to this higher level of conduct
