The CYO Parent Code of Conduct outlines rules and responsibilities for all CYO parents.
This code serves to remind parents of the importance of acting as a positive role model, while showing encouragement and respectful behavior toward others during CYO athletic events. We kindly ask that all CYO parents read and understand our Parent's Code of Conduct prior to their children participating in our programs.
CYO Athletics Parent Code of Conduct
I will enjoy my child’s opportunity to experience the benefits of sports.
I will trust in my child’s ability to have fun as well as to perform and achieve excellence on his/her own.
I will help my child learn the right lessons from winning and losing and from individual accomplishments and mistakes.
I will respect my child’s teammates and fellow parents as well as the players, parents and coaches from opposing team.
I will give only encouragement and applaud only positive accomplishments whether for my child, his/her teammates, their opponents or the officials.
I will respect my child’s coach and support his/her efforts.
I will not instruct from the sidelines.
I will insure that my child will attend all games and practices possible, and when not possible, I agree to inform the coach in advance.
I will respect all facilities made available so my child can play games and practice his/her sport.
I will respect any equipment or uniform that may be issued to my child so that he/she can participate.
I will respect the officials and their authority during games.
I will never demonstrate threatening or abusive behavior or use foul language.
I will be responsible to report to CYO any perceived misconduct by coach, player, parent or official so it can be dealt with in the appropriate manner.
I also agree that if I fail to abide by the rules and guidelines listed above, I will be subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following:
I understand if I am removed from an athletic event, I am automatically barred from attending the next scheduled competition for that team. I must meet with the member administrator about the incident and obtain a signed letter from the member administrator requesting CYO diocesan administration to permit me to attend future competitions.
I understand if I am removed from an event for a second time, I will not be permitted to attend any competitions for the remainder of the season. I must meet with the member administrator about the incident and obtain a signed letter from the member administrator asking the diocesan administration to permit me to attend events in the subsequent season.
