Parent Pledge

Parents Pledge

I recognize that parents are the most important role models for their children and that amateur athletics help to develop a sense of teamwork, self worth and sportsmanship. I encourage my child to play by the rules and respect the rights of other. I understand it is important to enforce rules of play and set conduct standards as necessary components in athletics and life. I will at all times encourage my child to play by the rules, respect the game officials' decisions and not criticize a game official's ruling during or after an athletic contest. 


As a Parent, I agree to abide by the following.

  • Encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, fans and officials at games, practices and other sporting events.
  • Place the well being of my child before a personal desire to win.
  • Advocate a sports environment for my child that is free of drugs, tobacco, alcohol and abusive language, and refrain from their use during youth sporting events.
  • Encourage my child to play by the rules and respect the rights of other players, coaches, fans and officials.


I give my permission for my child to play with the above team and hereby waive any and all claims against the Department of Recreation & Parks, its employees or other persons affiliated with the league, from injuries sustained as a participant or while traveling to/from a game.
