  • I will work equally hard for myself and my team 

  • I will be a good sport and applaud all good play whether made by my team or the opposition

  • I will remember that children learn best by example so I will applaud good play and performances by both my child’s team and their opponents

  • I will focus on my child’s efforts and performance, not the score 

  • I will thank the coaches, officials and other volunteers who give their time to conduct the event for the benefit of my child
