• Coaches will never coach or train while under the influence of alcohol or drugs nor will they allow a player to do so. 
• Coaches will never use trash talk, or profane, obscene or vulgar language under any circumstance.   
 
Players Code of Conduct  
• Players must always play by the laws of the game. 
• Players will control their temper and most of all, resist the temptation to retaliate when you feel you have been wronged. 
• Players will demonstrate good sportsmanship. 
• Players will treat all players as they would like to be treated.

• Players will never use unnecessary rough tactics during the course of the game. 
• Players will never appear at a game or practice under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 
• Players must always abide by the officials decisions.  
 
Parents Code of Conduct  
• Parents serve as role models for their children; be aware of this and work to be a positive role model.  Applaud good plays by both your child’s team as well as the opposing team.  
• Parents should refrain from coaching from the sidelines as their advice is often in conflict with what the coach has taught the players. 
• Parents should never referee from the sidelines. 
• Parents will not embarrass their child by yelling at players, coaches, or officials. By showing a positive attitude toward the game and all its participants all the children will benefit. 
• Parents will emphasize skill development and how practice will benefit your athlete. 
• Parents should support the efforts of the volunteer coaches and the league. 
• Parents will never use profanity, drugs, alcohol, or tobacco during any game or training session. 
• Parents will always show good sportsmanship and set an example for their child. 
• Parents will ask their child to treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, creed, sex or ability. 
• Parents will place the emotional and physical well-being of their child ahead of personal desire to win. 
• Parents will never strike, threaten to strike, shove or lay a hand on an official, player, coach or spectator.  
 
Directors and Volunteers Code of Conduct  
• Regardless of the time and sacrifices you devote, no director, officer, or other volunteer will receive any financial benefit for their volunteer service. 
• Organizational goals will be placed before persona goals. Put the best interest of the entire program ahead of individual desires. We are here to serve all the children with quality programs. 
• Minimize complaints and pettiness. Look for ways to improve the organization rather than pointing fingers. 
• Speak up when you have questions or disagree, but support the ASYA’s final decision. 
• Look at problems from the organization-wide perspective. Focus on the best interests of all the children. 
• Treat your colleagues respectfully.  They are just like you, doing their best to build a quality program for kids. Conflicts should focus on issues, not personalities of individuals.
