Soccer, A Sideline Guide for Parents

The Educated Parent


Parent Code of Conduct

The Burns Lake Community Soccer’s Code of Conduct establishes a clear set of guidelines for team officials, players, parents, guardians and spectators. The primary goal is to help ensure that soccer if a fun, positive and enjoyable experience for all. The Code of Conduct is based on the concept of fair play, defined by


4 basic principles:
• Respect for the rules
• Respect for the referees and their decisions
• Respect for all participants, including teammates, team officials and opponents
• Maintaining self-control at all times
It is a condition of club membership that all members follow the Code of Conduct at all times. Failure to comply with them will result in action from Burns Lake Community Soccer.



Set an example for your child. Good sportsmanship is not just for
players and coaches.
•  Always respect the match officials’ decisions. Never criticize the officials – nothing positive will result. Referees can have an offensive parent removed from the field, and if they refuse, the game may be forefeited to the opponent
• Zero tolerance for offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour or physical threats
• Remain outside the field of play and within the Designated Spectator Area (where provided)
• Avoid conflicts with other parents, guardians or spectators
• Let the coaches coach. Avoid yelling out instructions from the sidelines that can be confusing and frustrating to the players
• When cheering, try to cheer all the players and offer encouragement when they try something or succeed at something. Remember that children play for FUN
• Communicate with your coach; if you have ideas or problems, talk privately with the coach
• Encourage the players to respect the opposition and match officials
• Never criticize a player for making a mistake; mistakes are part of learning
