Code of Conduct

Parent Code of Conduct

This Parent Code of Conduct has been developed to clarify and define the standards of

professional, ethical, and moral behavior from parents affiliated with the King Little League, (KLL).

 

1. I will emphasize that the game is played for fun, and for the benefit of the youth, not

Adults.

 

2. I will act as a role model by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and

game officials – regardless of race, creed, color, gender, religion, or ability.

 

3. I will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player,

Parent or spectator such as booing and taunting, refusing to shake hands, or using

profane language or gestures.

 

4. I will teach my child to play within the spirit and intentions of the rules and the Laws of

the Game.

 

5. I will refrain from criticizing the game officials, and will respect their authority and

decisions during games.

 

6. I will never place the value of winning over the safety and welfare of the players.

 

7. I will demand a sports environment free from drugs, and alcohol and I will

refrain from their use at all sporting events.

 

8. I will not encourage, invite, nor recruit any player from an opposing team to join my

child’s team during the playing season.

 

I understand that if I fail to abide by the aforementioned KLL Parent Code of Conduct, I will be

subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following:

 

• Verbal warning by an official, team coach, and/or head of league organization

• Game forfeiture through an official or team coach

• Parental suspension with written documentation to be kept on file with KLL

 

I have read this KLL Parent Code of Conduct. I understand its requirements and agree to abide

By the letter and spirit of this KLL Parent Code of Conduct.
