Code of Ethics

By registering with Mentor Soccer Club, members agree
to abide by the following Code of Ethics.


The Mentor Soccer Club Trustees ask for your support with regard to the important subject of SPORTSMANSHIP.  A serious problem with the lack of respect toward referees, and general unsportsmanlike conduct, has surfaced on occasion.  As administrators, coaches, players, and parents, our behavior and values need to bring credit to our program, our city, and to the sport of soccer.  Please read through the following guidelines and keep foremost in mind the best interest of our children and club members.
The MENTOR SOCCER CLUB Trustees support the National Soccer Coaches of America "Code Of Ethics and Conduct", which states:  "Soccer is a sport which belongs to the players.  It is a game which offers physical challenges, emotional satisfaction, lifelong values and experiences for those who play.  SPORTSMANSHIP and ethical values highlighting RESPECT, FAIRNESS, CIVILITY, HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and ACCOUNTABILITY, are a foundation for the sport".
I Hereby Pledge to Provide Positive Support, Care and Encouragement For My Child Participating In Youth Sports by Following this Code of Ethics.
(1)  I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive behavior and support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or other youth sports event.

(2)  I will place emotional and physical well-being ahead of any personal desire to win.

(3)  I will help create and support safe and healthy environment.

(4)  l will provide support for coaches and officials to provide a positive, enjoyable experience for all.

(5)  I will demand a drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free sports environment and agree to assist by refraining from their use at all youth sports events.

(6)  I will remember that the game is for the benefit of the children and not for adults.

(7)  I will do my very best to make youth sports fun.

(8)  I will treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.

(9)  I will help promote an enjoyable youth sports experience within my personal constraint by assisting with coaching, being a respectful fan or player, providing transportation or whatever I am capable of doing.


Please note that violations of this Code of Ethics may result in member restrictions, suspension, or removal by the Mentor Soccer Club Board.
