I (Parent/Guardian) have reviewed Full Throttle Hoops Parental Pledge & Code of Conduct and agree to uphold the Vision, Mission, Core Values contained therein, as well as live out the PARENTAL CODE OF CONDUCT as long as we are apart of this organization (see below). We will do everything we can to get our child to all practices and games “on-time”…and we understand attendance at practice is a key determining factor in a coach’ discretionary decision on playing time; in addition to a player’s level of effort, respect, team play, and individual skill level.
I understand and endorse the purpose of our program: Teaching Life Lessons Through Sports to help our boys become Men of Respect, Dignity, Empathy, and integrity who will Lead, be Responsible, and make the world a better place.
I will support the coaches by applauding behaviors in my child and teammates that demonstrate characteristics of integrity, empathy, sacrifice, and responsibility.
I will acknowledge and appreciate every player’s growth towards maturity and efforts toward establishing stronger relationships with teammates, coaches, and themselves.
I will affirm my child and teammates with good character, healthy sportsmanship, and other-centered behaviors. I will not only affirm athletic performance for a victory but for a loss as well.
I will serve as a role model for our players talking politely and acting courteously towards coaches, officials, other parents, visiting team parents, and spectators at practices, games, and meetings.
I will model good sportsmanship. Acknowledge and applaud the efforts of team members and opponents. Accept defeat graciously by congratulating the members of the opposing team on a game well played. Support the team regardless of how much or how little my child plays or what the win-loss record is.
I will encourage my child and teammates with positive statements, even when they make mistakes. At every practice, they are growing physically and emotionally. At every practice, they are learning moral and ethical lessons. At every practice, they are developing character.
When problems or questions arise, I will have my child present the problem to the coach. This develops self-advocacy. After meeting with their coach, if the issue requires more clarity, I will contact the coach.
Because I am a parent with the power, position, and platform to make a positive difference in the lives of all players, I commit to this code of conduct. When failing to live up to these standards, I will allow for accountability and take responsibility for my actions.
