Ridgefield Youth Lacrosse: Player’s Code of Conduct
I will play for FUN and for the love of the game.
I will always be a good sport and be gracious in victory and defeat.
I will be respectful of my coaches, teammates, parents, opponents and officials (no talking back, arguing, etc).
I will be a team player and provide positive support to my teammates in good times and bad.
I will work hard to improve my skills and pay attention during practices and games.
I will learn the rules, and always play by them.
I understand that when my team wins, we win as a team; when my team loses, we lose as a team.
If I have a problem or concern, I will bring it up with my coach.
I will work hard in school and thank my parents for providing me the opportunity to play.
I will never bully a teammate or opponent, either verbally or physically. I understand that bullying includes taunting and excessive teasing, threats, cruel, demeaning and derogatory remarks, physical violence, vandalism of personal property, intimidation, and starting rumors, either verbally or electronically. I understand that the use of instant messages and social networking sites as a means to perpetuate bullying behavior will not be tolerated by RYL. I will not engage in behavior that makes a fellow player feel uncomfortable, afraid or left out.
