Youth Wrestling Parent/Coach Code of Conduct
Children’s sports are supposed to be fun – for children. Unfortunately, many parents, fans, and coaches don’t realize that
their actions, whether verbal or nonverbal, can have a lasting emotional effect on children. Too many children are leaving
sports activities because the fun is unfairly taken away by adults. Parents, fans, and coaches who follow this simple code can
help reinforce what sports are all about…
BEING FUN FOR EVERYONE.
Preamble The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and
six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship. The highest potential of
sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.” As a parent or spectator:
I will inform the coaching staff of any physical and or mental conditions that may affect the safety of my child and others.
I will review and abide by the Golden Eagle Wrestling Clubs policies and expectations at practices and in competitions.
I, my wrestler, and my guests will be positive role models by encouraging sportsmanship, being respectful, and demonstrating positive support for all wrestlers, coaches, officials, and spectators at practice and in competitions.
I, my wrestler, and my guests will not engage in unsportsmanlike conduct with teammates, officials, coaches, opposing wrestlers, parents, or spectators at practice and in competitions.
I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of all athletes, coaches, parents, and spectators at practice and in competitions. I will not encourage behavior that may endanger the health and or well-being of my wrestler, fellow teammates, opposing wrestlers, parents, or spectators at practice or in competitions.
I will respect the coaches and officials’ authority at practice and in competitions. If an issue arises at a competition, I will let our coaching staff know and let them handle it. If I have a question or concern regarding my child, the club, or the coaching staff I will contact the head coach directly to set up a meeting to discuss the matter at the appropriate time and in the appropriate place.
I will refrain from coaching my child and other athletes at practices and in competitions unless I am an official parent volunteer. All parent volunteers must be approved by the head coach and complete the certified coaches training that includes, a background check, safe sport training, and a valid USA Wrestling Leader membership.
I will ensure my child wears designated Golden Eagle Wrestling Club attire at practice and in competitions unless previously approved by the Club.
Golden Eagle Wrestling Club has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy regarding un-sportsmanlike and bullying behavior. At any time if a wrestler or parent violates these conditions a verbal and written reprimand will be provided along with appropriate disciplinary actions to include possible suspension from practices or competitions and/or termination from our wrestling program. If a wrestler is terminated from the wrestling program then there will be no refund.
