PARENTS CODE OF ETHICS
We as adults set an example that the children participating in the program will follow. The following code of ethics is to be adhered to by all adults:
1 Refrain from sideline coaching. Let the coaching staff, approved by the board of directors, do their job.
2 Do not criticize the coaches, players or cheerleaders on our own or opposing teams by word of mouth or gesture. Cheer for our team rather than against our opponents.
3 Accept the decision of game officials as being fair and being called to the best of their ability.
4 Abstain from consumption of alcohol or the use of tobacco products on the playing and practice fields. This is a National Pop Warner rule. Failure to abide by these rules could jeopardize the future of the Abington Raiders.
5 Do you best to assure that all participants will have an enjoyable experience in their days with the Abington Raiders.
Occasionally you may disagree with the way the organization is managed or the way your child is coached. As a member of the Abington Raiders your opinion is important. If you have suggestions for improvements let them be known at a board of directors meeting held the 3rd Tuesday of every month (except December) at the
Roychester Community Building.
Sideline gossip does nothing constructive for the children. If you disagree with the way your child’s coach is handling the team or your child, you should take the following steps:
Speak to the coach privately. This step resolves most disagreements.
If you are not satisfied with the coach’s response, speak to the Athletic Director or one of the Raiders Executives.
If the dispute remains unsolved, bring your issues to the next regularly scheduled board of directors meeting.
