Fairplay for Coaches

  1. I will be reasonable when scheduling games and practices, remembering that young athletes have other interests and obligations.
  2. I will teach my athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents.
  3. I will ensure that all athletes get equal instruction, support and playing time.
  4. I will not ridicule or yell at my athletes for making mistakes or for performing poorly. I will remember that children play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves.
  5. I will make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the athlete's ages and abilities.
  6. I will remember that children need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example.
  7. I will obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills.
