PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

The Valley Park Athletic Association Parents' Code of Conduct. We encourage all parents to follow the code and to have our parents set the example that our children can use as role models.

The Code:I hereby pledge to provide constructive support, care and encouragement for my child participating in the Valley Park Athletic Association youth sport programs by following the Parents' Code of Conduct:

  • I promise to encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, parents, coaches and officials at every game, practice or other related event; in order to promote a constructive and enjoyable experience for all.
  • I promise to treat players, parents, coaches, fans, and officials with respect at all times; and to ask my child to do the same, keeping in mind that the umpires are usually just a few years older than my own child.
  • I promise to place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of any personal desire to win. I accept the responsibility that my words and actions have a direct influence on my child; therefore, what I say and do at my child's events will be constructive and encouraging.
  • I promise to see that my child plays in a safe and healthy (physical and mental) environment.
  • I promise to remember that baseball / softball is a game and that games are played to have fun, and to do all that I can to make the experience fun for all children playing the game.
  • I promise to remember that the game is for the children - not for the adults, and to show my child that I care more about them then I do about the score of a game.
