Code of Conduct and Playing Opportunity Guidelines


Twin Valley Youth Field Hockey Club should demonstrate high standards of ethics and sportsmanship and promote the development of good character and other important life skills.  The highest potential of sports is achieved when participants are committed to pursuing victory with honor according to six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship.  I understand that in order to participate in Twin Valley Field Hockey Club I must act in accord with the following:

TRUSTWORTHINESS:

1. Trustworthiness- To be worthy of trust in all I do

-Integrity- Live up to high ideals of ethics and sportsmanship and always pursue victory

with honor; do what is right even when it is unpopular or personally costly.

-Honesty-Live and compete honorably, do not lie, cheat, steal or engage in any other dishonest or unsportsmanlike conduct.

-Reliability-Always be on time (on the field ready to start) to practices and games.  You must practice to play and absences can affect playing time

-Loyalty-Be loyal to the team; put the team above personal glory.

2. Respect- Treat all people with respect all the time and require the same of other student-athletes

3. Class- Live and play with class; be a good sport; be gracious in victory and accept defeat with dignity; give fallen opponents help, compliment extraordinary performance, show sincere respect in pre and post-game rituals.

4. Disrespectful Conduct-Do not engage in disrespectful conduct of any sort including profanity, obscene gestures, offensive remarks of any nature, trash talking, taunting, boastful celebrations, or other actions that demean individuals or the sport.

5. Respect Officials- Treat contest officials with respect; do not complain about or argue with official calls or decisions during or after an athletic event.  

6. Respect Coaches- Refrain from approaching a coach when angry or upset or in the presence of athletes.  Playing time, positions and team assignments are not negotiable issues. The coaches will make every effort to communicate with each player their position and role on their team.  Parents may request a coach’s conference 24 hours post game/tournament to discuss a particular issue or circumstance involving their child. Coaches are required to have another coach or board member present at the time of the conference.  Playing time and positions are not appropriate topics for these discussions.

7. Respect Athletes- Parents are to refrain from speaking of athletes, including their own, in any derogatory manner during games and/or practices.  If you have nothing good to say please stay silent.

RESPONSIBILITY

8. Role Modeling- Participation in sports is a privilege, not a right; players are expected to represent the club, coach and teammates with honor, on and off the field.  Consistently exhibit good character and conduct yourself as a positive role model.

9. Self control- Exercise self-control; do not fight or show excessive displays of anger or frustration; have the strength to overcome the temptation to retaliate.

10. Integrity of the Game- Protect the integrity of the game; play the game according to the rules.

FAIRNESS

11. Be Fair- Live up to high standards of fair play; be open-minded; always willing to listen and learn.

CARING

12. Concern for Others-Demonstrate concern for others; never intentionally injure any player or engage in reckless behavior that might cause injury to self or others.

CITIZENSHIP

13.Play by the Rules- Maintain a thorough knowledge of and abide by all applicable game and competition rules.

14. Spirit of Rules- Honor the spirit and the letter of rules; avoid temptations to gain competitive advantage through improper gamesmanship techniques that violate the highest tradition of sportsmanship.
