  The West Mississauga Soccer Club Codes of Conduct establishes a clear set of guidelines and principles for all coaches, players and parents / guardians within the Club. The primary goal of the Codes of Conduct is to ensure that we create a learning environment that is fun, positive, safe and enjoyable, while adhering to the principles of the West Mississauga Soccer Club Player Development Philosophy. These guidelines and codes are based on the Canadian Soccer Association Fair Play codes. The Codes of Conduct is based on the concept of fair play, defined by five basic principles:

  1. Respect for the Laws of the game
  2. Respect for the referees and their decisions

  5. Maintaining self‐control at all times

Coaches should read and discuss all the Codes of Conduct with all members of your team. It is a condition of continuing Club membership that all members follow the Codes of Conduct at all times. Players and coaches will be judged based on their performances on and off the field of play, as an individual and as a member of a team.

Fair Play Code of Conduct - Players

Have Fun!

  • I will do my best to participate because I want to, not just because my parents or coaches want me to
  • I will play by the rules and in the spirit of the game
  • I will control my temper – fighting and “mouthing off” can spoil the activity for everybody
  • I will come to the field expecting to have fun
  • I will make sure that my wants are communicated to my coach
  • I will remember that winning isn’t everything – that having fun, improving skills and making friends are also important

Try Your Hardest!

  • I will work hard in practice on all drills
  • I will play my hardest on game days
  • If I am tired, I will ask for a substitution
  • I will try my best to come ready for practices and games will come and support my team rain or shine

Respect!

  • I will encourage my team mates and not get mad at them or laugh at them if they make mistakes
  • I will encourage the other team whether we are winning or loosing
  • I will listen to the referee and accept their decisions regardless of whether the call was right or wrong
  • I will be quiet and listen to my coach when he is giving instruction
  • I will play the position my coach asks me to in a game
