- I will respect the coaches and players of the opposing team and display sportsmanship at the conclusion of a game
- I will respect the game officials and refrain from addressing them or commenting on their decisions during or after the game
- I will accept success and failure, victory and defeat, equally
- I will learn and respect the rules of soccer
- Ensure your child arrives at training, practices, and games on-time and fully equipped
- Demonstrate open communication to all coaches and team managers when scheduling conflicts should arise
- Cheer for your child's team in a positive manner, refraining at all times from making negative or abusive remarks about the opposing team.
- Maintain control of your emotions and avoid actions, language, and/or gestures that may be interpreted as hostile and humiliating

Both Players and Parents should adhere to the 24-hour rule: any player or parent/guardian who is upset with a coach, for any reason, should wait 24 hours before approaching any coach or board member with complaints. This rule is intended to let parents and coaches have a cooling/calming down period. After that time, the first thing to do is to discuss the problem with a team manager (in the case of travel) or the appropriate grade-level Commissioner and then, if necessary, the coach and/or board. It is the board’s opinion that, after waiting the required period of time, everyone will be able the discuss any problem in a calmer, more professional manner.
