Parent Code of Conduct

SDB Academy seeks to instill positive character-building traits in our youth through the demonstration of good sportsmanship, respect for others, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. We ask that parents and their guests attending SDB sponsored events help us by reflecting these character traits at games, practices, and other club related events.

When attending SDB sponsored events, I therefore agree:

I 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, practice or other sporting event.

I will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing, taunting or using profane language or gestures, etc.

I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well-being of the athletes.

I will teach my child to play by the spirit of the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, sex, or ability.

I will support the coach and refrain from making inappropriate comments in front of the children as they will carry that attitude onto the soccer field.

I will encourage my child (with parent in attendance) to discuss all soccer related issues directly with their coach.

I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches or referees at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.

I 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 will respect the coaches' time by being on time to drop off or pick up players for all practices and games.

I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

I understand that it is a privilege to watch my child participate as a member of SDB Academy, and that privilege may be suspended if I fail to abide by the aforementioned rules and guidelines.


Soccer Parenting Tips

There are generally five behaviors by parents that have a dramatic impact on kids and development:

1. They don't encourage their player to make mistakes.

2. They fight battles that aren't theirs to fight.

3. They don't engage their players in the development process.

4. They coach and cheer for the wrong things on game day.

5. They analyze the game with their players afterwards.
