WHY A CODE OF CONDUCT?

The notion of Fair Play is a universally understood concept, which underpins all of sport. Without fairness, sport is devoid of any meaning or purpose. Worse still, it can be a detrimental experience for its participants and, in many instances, spectators.

Integrity, fairness and respect–these are the fundamental principles of Fair Play. With them, the spirit of competition thrives, fueled by honest effort, respectful rivalries, courteous relations and the graceful acceptance of results.

Sport is an ethical pursuit, one which builds character and shapes attitudes. Adults who are  involved in sport, particularly, are obliged to help children develop a positive self-image, promote respect for rules, the role of game officials and fellow competitors. As mentors and advisors, parents and coaches should encourage in athletes a healthy and constructive attitude toward competition, build a sense of dignity, provide opportunities to learn new skills, and foster their participation in sport.

But Fair Play is also a philosophy––one of respect for the institution of sport. It leads to an agreement, between all of those involved in sport, on the values and lessons that we want sport to teach our children, and ourselves.

By having players, coaches and parents sign a Code of Conduct, it is hoped that the guidelines therein become meaningful and effective. By signing the respective Code, the participant acknowledges they have “bought into” the rationale the Code proclaims and are enlightened to what Fair Play is all about.

The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association’s Codes of Conduct for players, coaches and parents, reflect the general guidelines developed by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES).

The KYSA recommends that all its members, and those on the periphery (parents) “buy into” the concept of Fair Play by signing the appropriate Code prior to the start of each season!
