Players Play: Players are the reason for this team.
- Players are to conduct themselves in a manner that is pleasing to Christ. This includes time in uniform and out; during, before, and after games/practices; and in presence of all or none.
- Players will be required to be self-disciplined and will be expected to complete their conditioning on their own time.
- Players will strive to have a teachable spirit.
- Players are to respect themselves, teammates, opponents, coaches, referees, spectators, and parents.
- Players are to be supportive of teammates. Degrading or placing blame on another player is unacceptable.
- Players will give their best effort in every opportunity.
- Players will use mistakes or errors as a learning tool and not allow them to define them as a person or player. Players will try to bounce back from mistakes quickly.
- Players will not use foul language.
- Players will not engage in unsportsmanlike behavior before, during, or after the game.
- Players will dress modestly.
Parents Cheer: Parents of players are valuable. They are ultimately responsible for their daughters. They should allow coaches to coach and players to play.
- Parents should take this opportunity to teach life lessons.
- Parents should encourage their daughter to (1) strive for personal improvement, (2) have a teachable spirit, and (3) exhibit a Christ-like attitude.
- Parents should set the example for their daughters.
- Parents should use self-control and refrain from making negative comments about other players, the referees, or the coaching staff.
- For games and practices, parents should drop off and pick up their daughter promptly.
- Parents should refrain from coaching from the sidelines or stands.
- Parents should refrain from using foul language.
- Parents should communicate with the coaching staff in an appropriate manner and at an appropriate time. They should understand that the coaching staff is made up of unpaid volunteers who are not perfect and will make mistakes. Positive comments are welcome anytime. Concerns about the health of their child should be brought to the coach’s attention before games or practices or as the situation allows. If the parent has critical remarks, then these can be discussed at a time that is convenient to the coach. Directly after a game is not normally convenient to the coach.
