Program Conduct and Discipline
All coaches, parents, and players must establish and maintain the highest standard of behavior and integrity. The JBER Youth Sports program provides a drug, alcohol, and tobacco free environment. In addition, our porgram provides a profanity, and violence-free environment. Any violation of the NYSCA Code of Ethics will be addressed and, if appropriate, disciplinary action will be pursued.
Coaches - Each coach signs the NYSCA Coaches' Code of Ethics. If the coach does not honot this code, he or she will be counseled and possibly lose coaching privileges. Any coach dismissed from a game for unsportsmanlike behavior will be disqualified for the remainder of that game and the next official game in which that respective team participates.
Parents - Each parent signs the NYSCA Parents' Code of Ethics. This pledge specifies what is expected of all parents. Parents who break the code of ethics can and will be asked to leave the practice/playing area. The playing area is considered any surrounding area, which could be considered close enough to possibly cause further disruptions. Repeated violations will result in permanetly being barred from attending sporting events.
Players - Each player signs the NYSCA Players' Code of Ethics. The coach will review the code of ethics with players. If a player breaks the code of ethics, the following disciplinary actions will be taken:
First Offense - The player, with his or her parents, will be counseled. The Youth Sports Director will be notified.
Second Offense - The player will be provided notification that an ensuing incident will resul in the player being benched for one game. The Youth Sports Director will be counseling.
Third Offense - A conference with the player, parents, coach and Youth Sports Director will be held. The Youth Sports Director will determine the proper action after counseling with the Youth Programs Director.
