The WCSSF is an interclub competitive league designed to provide the Recreational Plus Player (ages 8–High School) a competitive experience, while focusing on equitable fair play and good sportsmanship while providing a venue for the players to have fun. To this end, the WCSSF believes that the following standards for our coaches are essential to our goals.
The WCSSF will not tolerate behavior which brings the WCSSF, your club, team, or game into disrepute. The WCSSF has high standards for the conduct of its coaches. They must be the standard bearers of good sportsmanship, conduct and ethical behavior at all times. The WCSSF believes that the coach must set and maintain an example for all players and spectators to follow:
- The spirit of the game and its laws are non-negotiable. Coaches need to work hard to create success for the development of players and the team by following the rules and their intent.
- Respect towards game officials, opponents, and players are absolutely required. Coaches must expect to be treated with respect, honor, and dignity and must demonstrate the same at all times.
- The conduct of the players is a reflection of the coach. The coach is expected to uphold high standards of sportsmanship for all players at all times and remember that the reputation of the organization and town is formed by the behavior of all its representatives.
- The use of profane language of any type is not allowed by players, spectators, coaching staff or team managers.
- Abuse of any kind is not permitted within our organization. This means we do not tolerate physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse or misconduct from our players, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents or spectators.
- Physical and sexual abuse, including, but not limited to, striking, hitting, kicking, biting, indecent or wanton gesturing, lewd remarks, indecent exposure, unwanted physical contact, any form of sexual contact or inappropriate touching, are strickly prohibited within our organization.
- Emotional abuse or verbal abuse is also prohibited. These include, but are not limited to such forms of abuse as profanity, yelling, insulting, threatening, mocking, demeaning behavior, or making abusive statements in regard to a person’s race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, sex or age.
Coaches who fail to abide by these expectations will face disciplinary action by game officials and any Board member of the WCSSF.
