Code of Conduct Contract




Mt. Laurel United Soccer Association Code of Conduct

Youth sports programs play an important role in promoting the physical, social, and emotional development of all of our children. It is therefore essential for coaches, parents, players and officials to encourage youth athletes to embrace the values of good sportsmanship. There is no better way to achieve this than by leading by example and demonstrating fairness, respect, and self control.

 

I therefore pledge to be responsible for my words and actions while attending, coaching, officiating, or participating in all Mt. Laurel United Soccer Association (“MLU”) events and shall conform my behavior to the following code of conduct:

1.    I will not engage in unsportsmanlike conduct with any coach, parent, player, participant, official, or any other attendee.

 

2.    I will not encourage my child, or any other person, to engage in unsportsmanlike conduct with any coach, parent, player, participant, official, or any other attendee.

14.  I will not encourage my child, or any other person, to initiate a fight or scuffle with any coach, parent, player, participant, official, or any other attendee.
