Parent / Spectator Behavior Policy

As a requirement to register a child to participate in any North Soccer Club program I agree that:

I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for the children, not adults. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the organization. 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 players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game and practice. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player or spectator such as booing, taunting, refusing to shake hands, arguing or using profane language or gestures.

I (and my guests) will respect all referees and their authority and will never question, discuss, or confront them either directly or indirectly.  No one, except the players, is to speak to the referee during or after the game. Exceptions: Coaches may ask questions before the game, call for substitutions, and point out emergencies during the game, or respond to the referee if addressed. Absolutely no disputing calls, during or after the game, no remarks to the referee to watch certain players or attend to rough play. NO YELLING at the referee, EVER, and no criticism, sarcasm, harassment, intimidation, or feedback of any kind during or after the game.

I (and my guests) will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team. I (and my guests) will respect all coaches and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field.  If I wish to speak to a coach about a game or practice, I will wait 24 hours before contacting them.

By registering your child to participate in any North Soccer Club program you also agree that if you fail to abide by the aforementioned rules and guidelines, the parent/guardian will be subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following: Verbal warning by official, head coach, and/or organization, Written warning, Game suspension, Season suspension.
