Bandera Youth Soccer Organization

Parent Code of Conduct


All parents must read and sign the following agreement before their child is allowed to participate in Bandera Youth Soccer.  Please sign and return the bottom portion of this agreement to your child’s coach no later than the first day of practice.  Please keep the top portion for your records.


As the parent of a Bandera Youth Soccer Organization soccer player, I hereby agree to the following:


  1. I will not force my child to participate in any sport.
  2. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
  3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
  4. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
  5. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
  6. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
  7. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  8. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
  9. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important that winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
  10. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
  11. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
  12. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
  13. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practice, unless I am one of the coaches of the team.
  14. My child will remain on the team that he/she was drafted to unless the BYSO board members have approved the move to another team.
  15. I will not contact BYSO volunteers (board members, coaches, referees, etc.) via personal phones or emails unless asked to.
