Parent’s Sportsmanship Creed

We found this on a city municipality website’s Recreational Basketball page. We thought it was pretty good and wanted to share it. They ask all parents to print and sign before the season begins.

  • Be a positive role model for my youth in sports.
  • Display good sportsmanship.  We support a program that builds
    character for the children of our community.
  • Respect the school facility; no food/drinks allowed in the gym
  • Most of all praise your youth for small successes in order to build skills on
    those successes.
  • I will remember that my attitude towards Players, Coaches and Referees is
    reflected in my youth’s attitude.  Profanity or other aggressive behavior will not
    be tolerated.
  • I will treat all Players, Building Supervisors, Coaches and Referees, as I would
    like them to treat me and my youth – With Respect.

I have read and agree to abide by the Parent’s Sportsmanship Creed.
