Volunteer Code of ConductUpdatedSunday September 26, 2021 byLVYBB.
YOUTH SPORTS COACH’S AGREEMENT I hereby pledge to live by this coach’s code of ethics:
-- I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my players ahead of a personal desire to win.
-- I will treat each player as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group.
-- I will do my best to provide a safe playing situation for all my players.
-- I will do my best to organize practices that are fun and challenging for all my players.
-- I will provide a sports environment for my team that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all LVYBB events.
-- I will lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all my players.
-- I have read, understood and will follow the rules of each sport that I coach, and I will teach these rules to my players.
--I will commit to the practice and game schedule and will provide reasonable notification should I not be able to attend a practice or game while also securing a replacement that is already pre-approved by the LVYBB board.
-- I will use coaching techniques appropriate for each of the skills that I teach.
-- I will remember that I am a LVYBB coach, and that the game is for children and not for the adults.
-- I will not make negative comments about the game or to an official at any time.
