Teamwork
Leadership
Good Sportsmanship
Coach and Player Development
Enjoyment

 
Player's Code of Conduct
As a player I will:

  • Remember that coaches and officials are there to help me and I will show them respect, play by the rules and in the spirit of the game.
  • Not use any wide-spread social media communication channels (email, texting, facebook, etc.) to communicate any offensive, abusive or insulting remarks towards any other player, official, parent, coaches, team support staff or executive members.
  • Respect all equipment and facilities provided for my use.
  • Show good sportsmanship, remembering winning isn't everything and I will acknowledge all good plays/performances - those of my team and my opponents.
  • Not use illegal drugs, tobacco or alcohol products.
  • Control my temper and recognize that fighting and "mouthing off" can spoil the activity for everyone.
  • Show good taste and class in my personal attire as instructed by my coach.
  • Act in a respectful manner and not use bad or vulgar verbal or body language.
  • Do my best to be a true team player and constantly display high standards of behavior.

Member's (parent/guardian) Code of Conduct

A parent or guardians expectations and attitudes have a significant bearing on a child's attitude towards other players, officials, managers, coaches, other parents and executive members.
 
As a parent/guardian I will:

  • Exhibit good sportsmanship at all times, never condone violations of the rules of the game or exhibit behaviour contrary to the spirit of the game.
  • Place the well-being and safety of each player above all considerations.
  • Not make abusive remarks to any official, player, coach, team support staff, volunteer or executive member.
  • Seek clarification of what is expected of me within the LDMFA organization.
  • Respect and show appreciation for the trained volunteers, coaches, officials, managers and trainers and remember that children learn ebst by example.
  • Not use any wide-spread social media communication channels (email, texting, facebook, etc.) to communicate any offensive, abusive or insulting remarks towards any other player, official, parent, coaches, team support staff or executive members.
  • Respect the designated smoking areas at all LDMFA functions, including practices, games and team building events.
  • Acknowledge that the use of illegal drugs and abuse of alcohol is not acceptable within the LDMFA where minors are in attendance.

It is expected that the players, members, coaches, team support staff and executive will abide by this Code of Conduct and sign a form to that effect.


More Parent/ Guardian Information

Parent-Coach Relations: Each team will have a Team Director, whose role includes being a “go-between” between the coaches and the parents.

When a coach identifies a player who, for whatever reason, is experiencing problems, the coach will address his/her concerns (and what action should be taken) with the Team Director, who will communicate with the parents.

Similarly, should a parent have any concerns about their child’s football experience, they should express those concerns to the Team Director (not directly to the coach), who will then liaise with the coach for resolution.

If the director thinks that the coach should meet directly with this parent, this can be arranged for another day at a time agreeable to all parties (at least a one day cooling off period).

If it is deemed by the Level Director that a satisfactory solution cannot be reached by the parents and coach, then it will be directed to the Executive for review and a final ruling.
