Chugiak Youth Sports Association (CYSA) is committed to creating positive opportunities and experiences through our sports programs that are fun and will foster the development of positive moral and ethical standards within the youth of our communities and promote good sportsmanship among all participants.  The achievement of those goals, in large part, depends on the character and conduct of persons involved in those programs as administrators, officials, and coaches.

In order to assure CYSA’s commitment to those goals, all coaches hereby agree to abide, and be bound, by the following standards of conduct and further agree to the authority of CYSA to enforce those standards:

The coach shall:

  • Be aware that he or she has an influence on the education of the athlete and, thus, shall constantly display and demand good sportsmanship in practice and in games, including, but not limited to, accepting decisions of game officials in a professional manner; refrain from criticizing opposing coaches, players, and fans; congratulate opposing players and coaches following a game; and refrain from teaching unsportsmanlike strategies.
  • Master the contest rules and shall teach them to his or her team members.  The coach shall not seek an advantage by circumvention of the spirit or letter of the rules.
  • Respect and support the contest officials.  The coach shall not indulge in conduct that would incite players or spectators against the officials.
  • Refrain from using abusive or profane language in or around the playing field or the gym.
  • Provide opportunities for all players regardless of race, color, ethnic background, or religion.
  • Strive to promote good mental and physical health in all aspects of participation and refrain from any type of verbal or physical abuse of any players.
  • Refuse to permit a player to participate in a practice or game when in doubt as to the player’s health or physical  condition and abide by a doctor’s decision in all matters relating to a player’s health and physical ability to participate.
  • Avoid the use of alcohol and tobacco products when in contact with players, or in view of players at the playing field.
  • Provide approximately equal playing time for all team members that are present and physically able to play in each game regardless of ability.
  • Provide players with additional challenge (such as playing with the left foot, or non-dominant hand) rather than “running up the score” against another team.
