Parent Conduct
Posted Oct 18, 2021

How parents conduct themselves during the game is very important! Please review these things and make sure to  abide by these guidelines:

  1. I agree not to criticize the players, coaches or referees and if I have a question or complaint I will either address the coach or GWSC board depending on what is appropriate.
  2. I understand and accept decisions of the game officials (including referees and coaches) on the field as being fair and called to the best ability of those officials.
  3. I agree not criticize an opposing team, its players, coaches, or fans by word or gesture.
  4. I agree to hold my child responsible for his/her sportsmanship and agree to never encourage unsportsmanlike conduct.
  5. I will refrain from using physical or verbal abuse or profane language at any GWSC game, practice or meeting.
  6. I will not do or say anything that will discredit, undermine, or bring a negative reputation to the team or GWSC Club.
  7. I agree not be in possession of and/or drinking alcoholic beverages or using any illegal substances during any soccer activity. By school district policy, smoking is not permitted in any activity around children.
  8. I agree that my responsibility as a parent is to encourage and be constructive to my child, coach, team and club.
  9. I will not attempt to coach my child or other players on the team during a practice or game unless given permission by the coach. This includes yelling out or giving technical coaching or advice while spectating on the sidelines.
  10. I agree not enter the field of play during a game and to watch the game sitting or standing from at least 4ft from the sideline. I understand No spectators are allowed off the end line or near the goal.
