Parents/Guardians Code of Conduct

Parents / Guardians should understand the main objective of our Club is to provide an atmosphere of safe, recreational fun that includes the proper examples for our children. The spirit of the game must always reflect good sportsmanship. Coaches, Referees, and Parents / Guardians have a tremendous responsibility to promote this spirit at games and the cooperation of all participants and spectators is vital.


1. Game Day and Other Responsibilities:

  • All Spectators will recognize the authority of the Referees, Coaches, and Assistant Coaches in maintaining the spirit of the game on the field of play prior to, during and immediately following a game.
  • Parents / Guardians watching on the sideline should sit quietly on the side and not raise their voices in anything but positive encouragement.
  • Foul or abusive language, as well as derogatory acts and comments, directed towards the Referee(s), Coaches, Players or any other Spectator(s) will not be tolerated.
  • Parents/Guardians/Spectators will not argue or dissent with Referee decisions. Furthermore, they will not make statements or engage in other actions that could incite others.
  • All non-playing participants to any soccer game shall remain at least two feet back from the touchline and no closer than 10 yards to either goal line.
  • The Referee, Coach, or any Board Member, has the authority to dismiss anyone from the field of play, including Spectators, Parents, or Guardians, who do not adhere to these rules or other reasonable expectations of good behavior.

2. Let the Coaches Coach: Leave the coaching to the Coaches. This includes motivating, psyching your child for practice, critiquing, setting goals, and requiring additional training, etc. You have entrusted the care of your child to the Coaches and they need to be free to do their job. If a player has too many Coaches, this can be confusing and their performance may decline.

3. Be Your Child's Best Fan: Support your child unconditionally. Do not withdraw love when your child performs poorly. Your child should never have to perform to win your love. Support and root for all players on the team — encourage teamwork.


Munster Soccer Club's main objective for your child is to have fun and enjoy the game of soccer.  We will try to challenge the players to reach past his or her "comfort level" and improve themselves as a player in an environment that is fun, safe, and challenging.


Thank You,
