SPORTS CODE OF CONDUCT

FOR PARENTS, COACHES, GUARDIANS & PLAYERS

 

Youth sports programs play an important role in promoting the physical, social and emotional development of children.  Therefore, it is essential for parents, coaches, spectators and officials to encourage youth athletes and embrace the values of good sportsmanship.  Furthermore, parents, guardians, family members, coaches, spectators and officials involved in youth sports events should be models of good sportsmanship and should lead by example by demonstrating fairness, respect and self-control.

 

The KAPRB Sports Code of Conduct has been developed for the purpose of encouraging and requiring trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness and good citizenship for all individuals involved in KAPRB Programs.
