​​​North Vancouver Elementary Athletic Assoc. Fair Play Code

Fair Play for Coaches:

I will be reasonable when scheduling games and practices, remembering that young athletes have other interests and obligations.

I will teach my athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents.

I will ensure that all athletes get equal instruction, support and playing time.

I will not ridicule or yell at my athletes for making mistakes or for performing poorly. I will remember that children play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves.

I will make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the athletes’ ages and abilities.

I will remember that children need a coach they can respect. I will be generous with praise and set a good example.

I will obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills.

Fair Play Code for Athletes:

I will participate because I want to, not just because my parents or coaches want me to.

I will play by the rules, and in the spirit of the game.

I will control my temper (fighting and “mouthing off” can spoil the activity for everybody).

I will respect my opponents.

I will do my best to try to be a true team player.

I will remember that winning isn’t everything - that having fun, improving my skills, making friends and doing my best are also important.

I will acknowledge all good plays/performances (those of my team and of my opponents).

I will remember that coaches and officials are there to help me.

I will accept their decisions and show them respect.
