Code of Conduct & Financial Obligation

Shelby County Homeschool Sports seeks to build a strong, positive culture of good sportsmanship and exemplary behavior.  This code applies to coaches, team managers, players, parents, and even family/friends of the players.  Because this is such an important aspect to the culture of Shelby County Homeschool Sports, we want to clearly specify the expectations and ensure everyone is fully informed so we can then hold all of the organization’s extended family accountable for their behavior.
Failure to observe the code of conduct could result in forfeiture of a player’s tournament participation and/or continued team participation. Players who violate the code of conduct will be benched.  Family members who violate the code of conduct may be asked to leave a game and/or the gym premises.  A player may be asked to leave the organization entirely for repeated violations of the code, and if so, there will be no refunds of the player participation fees.

Players will:

-demonstrate good sportsmanship and respect toward my teammates, coaches,
competitors, and officials at every game or practice.

-place the emotional and physical well-being of the team and others ahead of a
personal desire to win or the need to excel individually.

-do her best to keep her body in shape and maintain a positive mental attitude for the duration of the season.  She will honor the game of volleyball and be a good role model and an ambassador for Shelby County Homeschool Sports.

Parents will:

-support the coaches and team managers working with Shelby County Homeschool Sports in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable volleyball experience for all.

-always behave respectfully toward their daughter’s teammates, other players, coaches, fans, and the officials, despite what they may do or how they themselves might behave and regardless of race, geography, creed, or ability.  Parents will also reinforce this perspective with their daughters and will role model the desired behavior for their daughters.

-do their very best to make the sport of volleyball fun for their child and their teammates and help her balance winning and personal achievement with teamwork and learning volleyball skills and life lessons.

-communicate directly with coaches or team managers with any problems, questions
concerns or improvement ideas involving their child or the team in general.

-be responsible for picking up and dropping off their child to practices or games on time.  If their daughter is late or unable to attend practices or games, the parent or player will contact the coach and/or team manager and inform them accordingly.

-ensure fees are paid in a timely manner according to the fee schedule, and that any other arrangements for paying fees are communicated clearly to and agreed upon by the organization.
