JGS Athletics Code of Ethics:
We believe that a partnership among coaches, players, and parents provides the foundation for a successful athletic program and team experience. We strongly urge parents to attend the coaches/athletes/parents meetings to ensure understanding of the expectations of our athletes.
To help ensure the best experience for your child, through the season a parent should:
Be enthusiastic and encouraging: Parents should support their children to do their best at whatever level they participate.
Let the coach be the coach: When on the sidelines, parents should resist the temptation to “coach”, recognizing that you may confuse or contradict our coaches’ sideline instruction.
Support our Coach: Regardless of a parent’s sports experience, one should not publicly criticize the coach or teammates. It is crucial to the team’s spirit and success that players develop a respect for their coach. Any questions about coaching style should be directed to the coach at an appropriate time (not during or after games).
Demonstrate good sportsmanship: Parents are expected to act as a role model at all times — toward opponents, coaches, teammates, officials, and other spectators.
Communicate with your coaches: It is inevitable that parents will have questions for coaches; parents should have an open line of communication with the coaching staff while encouraging the child to advocate for him/herself directly with the coach.
