TEAM PROVIDENCE TRAVEL PARENTS

Parents, Caretakers & Adults We Expect & want ... 

Parent Code of Conduct:

 

The Team Providence Program is bigger than one person, player or individual.  It is expected that parents will carry themselves in a respectful manner at all times.

  • We ask you have players at games 40 minutes before the game. If you cannot make it, please let us know the two days or the day before. 

  • You understand that player behavior will affect playing time and even playing on the travel team.  We don't always get the calls we want or outcome but should always maintain a sportsmanlike demeanor. 

  • You to cheer on your child with pride but do not put down anyone else's child 

  • You to maintain professional and sportsmanlike behavior at all times like your children;

  • Encourage your players to have fun.  You might not be as happy as the people to the left but you should be cheering for all kids on the team and encourage them to have a good time. 

  • Applaud their child and other children on our Team Providence Travel Team;

 

Parents should not be:

 

  • Yelling at the referee in the game.  Every game has good and bad calls with some more than others. Let the coach handle and represent the team.  Yelling at the referee only makes things more adversarial;

  • Yelling at any of the players of our team or the opposing team unless they are your own son; 

  • Sideline coaching and walking on the sides or up and down giving the kids direction. Let the coaches do their job and coach the kids.
