Positive Parent Pledge

Clyde-Green Springs Schools

Positive Parent Pledge

 

Our student-athletes compete in sports to challenge themselves physically, to have fun and for the love of the game. Through sports, our students learn to be trustworthy, respectful, responsible, fair, caring, and cooperative. Through sports, students can achieve great things!

As a parent and as a fan I will agree to abide by the following:  I will be a positive parent!

I will remember that this game is for the student-athlete and I will make it a positive event.

I will be a positive role model for the students and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.

I will teach my student to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without hostility or violence. I will demand that my student treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

I will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting or using profane language or gestures. I will respect the coaches and will not question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field or on the court. If I wish to speak with a coach, I will follow accepted protocol and seek this formal meeting through the Athletic Director at least twenty-four hours after an event.

I will not ridicule or make negative statements at the student, the team, or the coach for making a mistake or losing a competition.

I understand the negative impact social media can have on a school culture and pledge to not post negative comments about a coach, player or another parent.

I will not coach my child or other players during games and/or practices. I understand that I am the parent or fan and will leave the coaching to those who have been entrusted with the position.

I will be honest with the coaches, encouraging my student to make every practice and will not allow them to make excuses for not meeting their obligations to the team.

I pledge to follow these guidelines and to be a Positive Parent.
