'I will treat each participant as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group."

'I will promise to review and practice the basic first aid principles needed to treat the injuries of the participants."

'I will do my best to organize practices that are fun and challenging for all of the participants."

'I will lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship for all of the participants."

'I will use coaching techniques that are appropriate for all of the skill that I teach."

I understand any violation of the Parent Code of conduct can result in my removal from the WCFL Football Complex, Parking Lot and program.
