TO THEVIKINGS SOCCER CLUB (VSC) COACHES AND PARENTS,
The VSC has introduced a
parent conduct code intended to curb unruly and unsportsmanlike behavior. Each
parent and coach should have read, understood, signed and adhered to the
statements and principals stated on the code.
A VSC referee or board member may eject a parent,
coach or spectator from the field and excuse him or her to the parking lot for
the remainder of the game if their behavior warrants it. The game will be
suspended until the situation is properly taking care of. This will be the only
way to ensure the safety of the participants and the integrity of our youth
recreation soccer program. In the case of a coach's removal, the game will
commence after an assistant coach or another parent takes over the coaching
responsibilities. The children will
not be penalized for an adult who is unable to control their behavior.
resulting in removal includes but is not limited to:
1. Verbal abuse
of a referee, including questioning their calls
2. Verbal abuse
of a player
3. Taunting an
violent behavior such as "if he's going to push you around, push him
name will be recorded by the referee and reported to the VSC. Should the same
coach have a second infraction, they will no longer be coaching for the VSC.
serves as your first and only warning. If we stay focused on the fact that we
are all out there for our children's benefit, we should not have any problems.
It is the VSC board's sincere hope
that no one will be removed from a game but feel we must initiate a policy
nonetheless. Should you have any questions about this letter or anything else
regarding the VSC, please do not
hesitate to contact the VSC and/or theVSC President (Joshua D. Radel).
