PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT

Children’s sports are supposed to be fun – for the children. Unfortunately, many parents, fans and coaches don’t realize that their actions, whether verbal or nonverbal, can have a lasting emotional effect on children. Too many children are leaving sports activities because the fun is unfairly taken away by adults.

That is why the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation (NYSSF), a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting the healthy development of youth in sports, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Governors Committee on Physical Fitness and Sports, convened a consensus meeting with representatives from more than thirty sports, medical, educational and professional organizations to create the following Code of Conduct for parents and spectators to abide by at every game.

Preamble
The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

As a parent or spectator:

1. I will not force my child to participate in sports.
2. I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
3. I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.
4. I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.
5. I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
6. I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well-being of the athletes.
8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.
10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participant for making a mistake or losing a competition.
13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.
14. I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.
17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.

USASA CONCUSSION POLICY FOR MEMBERS

All USASA athletes under the age of 18 years and who are suspected of having sustained a concussion must be removed immediately from participation in USASA sporting event (e.g. sanctioned training, practice, camps, competitions or tryouts), by the Technical Supervisor (TS) or USASA member coach overseeing such sporting event.

The minor athlete will be prohibited from further participation until evaluated and cleared in writing to resume participation in USASA sporting events by a qualified health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussive head injuries.

The health care professional must certify to USASA in the clearance letter that he/she has successfully completed a continuing education course in the evaluation and management of concussive head injuries within three years of the day on which the written statement is made.

Upon removal of a minor athlete from participation for a suspected concussion/traumatic brain injury, the USASA TS or member coach making the removal must inform USASA via the injury report for said event.

Athletes who have subsequently been medically cleared to resume participation must provide such medical clearance (as described above) to the USASA TS who authorized the removal from an event. The TS will then notify the USASA office that such a letter has been attained and return to competition is approved.

About Concussion

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Doctors may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.

Registration for all SnowOhio Series events will be at from 8:00am until 9:00 on the day of the events.  Riders Meetings time and locations will be determined on the day of the events.  Look in “Update” section for Event Day details.

CHECK YOUR HELMETS

The use of a helmet is mandatory for all events. Helmets used in USASA Snowboard/Ski events shall be specifically designed and manufactured for use in snow sports and shall bear a CE mark and conform to recognized and appropriate standards such as CE 1077 or US 2040, ASTM 2040.

You will be required to have a Ceritified for Snowsports use helmet on your head before participaing in any USASA SnowOhio Series event.

Please review section 151.03 “Saftety Equipment” of the 2015/2016 Rule Book available at www.usasa.org/rulebook  So please, no “dude whats up with that”………..its your responsibility to get the right lid on your head.

They’ll have a sticker inside stating “APPROVED FOR SNOWSPORTS USE & the CE 1077 or US 2040, ASTM 2040 tags.  Talk to the guy or gal in your local shop, be sure they show you the sticker that says its approved before you lay down your cash, cause if you show up wearing a helmet that’s not approved, you’re gonna be a DNS.

 

Unequal Technologies

Don’t let anyone tell you can’t do something until after you’ve done it.  Do not let anyone say you can’t do something or try to stop your dream.  Believe in yourself, get off your rear end and make something happen.  Leave your footprint in this world, not your butt print.
