Code of Conduct

The Commack Soccer Club has issued the following guidelines regarding behavior at all Team/Club events:

Players are expected to show proper respect towards coaches, trainers, managers and officials of the Team/Club at all times.

Players must display sportsmanship and courtesy to opposing players and parents, as well as to referees and their assistants.

Any player using foul or derogatory language to their teammates or opponents may have playing time reduced.

All players are required to place bags, water bottles, etc. at designated areas prior to the start of training or games and clean up the area at the end of each game and practice session. This is a player, not a parent responsibility!!

Players are required to be with the team exclusively from the start of warm-up to the end of cool-down. No interaction with parents until training or games have finished.

Parents

Actions such as derogatory sideline discussions, criticizing the trainers, coaches, or other team players, unauthorized parent meetings, sending blast emails, speaking negatively about the club, coaches, trainers or other officials are considered in violation of this agreement. If any emails are sent to other team parents regarding the team, its activities or decisions, they must be copied to the coach and team administrator directly.
