Parents Code

Gryphons players learn to work together, to sacrifice for the good of the team, to enjoy winning, and deal appropriately with defeat – all while becoming physically fit and healthy. Best of all, they have fun. Parents play an important role in the success of young players. Through your encouragement and good example, you can help ensure that all the players learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline.

Support Your Child
Supporting your child by giving encouragement and showing interest in their team is very important. Help your child work toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game. Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory – that way your child will always be a winner despite the outcome of the game!

Always Be Positive
Parents serve as role models for their children. Applaud good plays by your child’s team as well as good plays by the opposing team. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from youth sports activities.

Remember That Your Child Wants to Have Fun
Remember that your child is the one playing soccer, not you. It’s very important to let children establish their own goals – to play the game for themselves. Take care not to impose your own standards and goals on them. Surveys reveal that 72% of children would rather play for a losing team than ride the bench for a winning team. Children play for the fun of playing.

Don’t Be a Sideline Coach or Ref
Coaches and referees are usually parents just like you. They volunteer their time to help make your child’s youth soccer experience a positive one. They need your support too. That means refraining from coaching or refereeing from the sidelines. As a volunteer organization, there’s usually always an opportunity for you to take your interest in coaching or refereeing to the next level and become one yourself! Under no circumstances should a parent challenge a referee, coach or other parent verbally or physically.
