PARENTAL CODE of CONDUCT
The Rhode Island Youth Super Liga, LLC prides itself on providing a fun-filled and a healthy competitive soccer environment for all players, coaches, referees and parents/spectators participating in any Super Liga event and/or league.
To ensure that the philosophies of the Rhode Island Youth Super Liga, LLC is adhered to, It is the responsibility of ALL coaches, players, referees and parents to maintain high standards of sportsmanship and appropriate conduct for themselves. Abusive, confrontational and inappropriate language or behavior detrimental to any individual, before, during or after a game will not be tolerated.
All individuals at a game must allow, players to play; coaches to coach; referees to officiate and spectators to support, at all times. Failure to do so will undermine the integrity of the game and the authority of coaches/referees. This could potentially lead to a hostile environment and one that we cannot allow the players to witness.
All parents are asked to agree to follow the following Code of Conduct:

-- I will not enter the field of play unless directed to do so by the referee or coach.
-- If I am made aware that my child is not conducting themselves in sporting manner, I will counsel my child to do so or explain failure to do so will result in a disciplinary action.
Failure to abide by the above Code of Conduct may result in the following disciplinary action.
