Parent Ethics Code

Orem Youth Football

Youth Tackle Football Program - Parent's Code of Ethics

I will be responsible for my behavior as well as for the behavior of those who attend OYF events as my guest.

I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care and encouragement for my child participating in youth sports by following this Parent's Code of Ethics Pledge.

I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice or other youth sports events

I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of a personal desire to win.

I will be in control of my emotions.

I will remain in the spectator area during competitions.

I will insist that my child play in a safe and healthy environment.

I will support coaches and officials working with my child, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

I will not advise the coach on how to do the job nor will I speak negatively about him.

I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free of drugs, tobacco and alcohol, and will refrain from their use at all youth sports events. I will not drink alcohol at a contest or come to one having drunk too much.

I will remember that the game is for our youth -not adults. Participation in youth sports is a privilege, not a right.

I will show respect for all participants at all times.

I will do my very best to make youth sports fun for my child. I will not instruct him to harm any other participants knowingly.

I will not coach my child during the contest.

I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed or ability.

I will not make insulting comments to players, parents, officials, or coaches of either team.

I promise to help my child enjoy the youth sports experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectable fan assisting with coaching or providing transportation.

I will require that my child's coach be trained in the responsibilities of being a youth sport coach and that the coach upholds the Coaches Code of Ethics.

I will thank coaches, officials, and other volunteers who have conducted the event.

I understand that my responsibilities include setting an example for children and that any breech of those responsibilities will result in my inability to attend games or practices if deemed necessary by the program coordinators.


OYF PLAYING TIME AGREEMENT: All players who attend all team practices and meetings and participate in those practices and meetings are guaranteed to play a minimum of 10 plays in that week’s game.  The team manager will be in charge of make the head coach aware that each child gets the minimum plays during the game. In the event a child misses a practice or team meeting he is not guaranteed the minimum of 10 plays and the head coach will play the child at his discretion!


OYF CODE OF CONDUCT: Each team shall be responsible for keeping the spectators orderly and off the playing field and behind the spectator's boundary. Shouting abusive language at a player, officials, or spectators is strictly prohibited, and a violation shall result in the enforcement of the high school rules. At the immediate time of any incident or physical abuse of an official or player by any spectator or coach, the officials will meet with the head coaches of both teams in order that every effort is made to identify the assailant. Physical abuse of an official or player by a coach or parent will result in suspension of the coach or parent from all OYF activities for the entire calendar year or 365 days, commencing with the date of the infraction.

EJECTION: Any player, coach (head or assistant), or spectator who is ejected from a game by the officials, or causes a game to be forfeited due to unsportsmanlike conduct will automatically be suspended for the next game (scheduled, playoff, or championship) on the first offense. A second such offense will cause such player, coach, or spectator to be automatically suspended for the remainder of the season (playoffs and championship games included). Any flagrant offense is cause for automatic removal from all OYF football activities. No reimbursement will be given.


Thanks for your commitment to make football enjoyable for everyone! We appreciate your support!
