|NCYSA Code of Conduct|
All players, coaches, parents and officials are required to follow in both letter and spirit this Code of Conduct. RMAYSA requires signature for all Select team participants to underscore the importance of this code.
Winners Are More Than the Score!Being a winner comes though Mastery of the game rather than a scoreboard orientation. Victory is a by-product of the pursuit of excellence in the time coming up to the game. A winner is someone who makes maximum effort, continues to learn and improve, and doesn’t let mistakes (or fear of mistakes) stop them. Coaches & parents can make a big difference in how these concepts are experienced by players and whether they take them forward in to life's arena.
Fill Player's Emotional Tanks
All players need a positive motivator who refuses to motivate through fear, intimidation, or shame. Parents and coaches have the opportunity to fill their player's "Emotional Tank" like the gas tank of a car. Just as a car with an empty gas tank can’t go very far, a player with an empty emotional tank doesn't have the energy to do her best.
Specific comments which emphasize effort such as "Great try on that last shot on goal, next time though I'd like to see you try this...." Specific critiques with suggestions on how to do it better are the way to go as opposed to criticism or yelling.
Even more importantly work to remain positive even when things aren't going well. Recognize that it is often when things go wrong that a coach or parent can have the most lasting impact and can teach the most important lessons.
