Parent’s Code of Conduct Agreement

Parent’s Code of Conduct Agreement

Your child is participating in a youth track program at the Athletic Performance Ranch. Participation in this program is very valuable to the development of children. Aspects of teamwork, dedication, discipline, physical fitness, self-esteem and fair play all contribute to the overall growth and maturation of young people. We are an organization whose goals are to instill these values/qualities in all participants regardless of individual athletic ability or the outcome.

Your role as a spectator has a significant impact upon the success of our program. Therefore, we need you to fully understand and completely accept the standards of behavior detailed below.

I therefore agree:

  1. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the track program is for youth and not adults.
  2. I understand that children play sports to have fun, make friends, and to learn new skills; therefore, I will
    praise effort as well as execution in order to keep sports in the proper perspective.
  3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or special needs that may affect the safety of my child
    or the safety of others.
  4. I will learn the rules of the sport and the policies of AP Ranch.
  5. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing
    respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all athletes, coaches, officials and
    spectators at every meet.
  6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach,
    athlete or parent such as booing or taunting, or using profane language or gestures.
  7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and wellbeing of the
  8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or
  9. I will demand that my child treat other athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators with respect.
  10. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard.
  11. I will promote the physical and emotional well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may
    have for my child to win.
  12. I will respect the officials and their authority during meets and will never question, discuss or confront
    coaches at the meet and will take time to voice my concerns later with the coach.
  13. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and I will
    refrain from their use at all sporting events.

I fully understand and completely accept the standards of behavior outlined. My signature below will serve as my public acknowledgment of my unconditional agreement with each standard contained in this document.

I realize that if at any time my behavior becomes non-compliant with any of these standards this could potentially jeopardize my child’s opportunity to participate in the track youth program.
