A reminder to all football parents. Physicals need to be completed by the start of practice on August 1st in order for your child to begin practicing. Thank You.
We are always looking for donations to help keep our teams up and running and keep the children in safe equipment. If you know a business ot person that would be willing to donate please contact one of our board members or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get an official letter to them. It takes money to keep things running and to make this a fun and safe activity for the players and cheerleaders. Thank You.
We are in a position as parents, volunteers, and administrators of this organization to set a good example for the children in the areas of sportsmanship, fair play, and ethical conduct. Children look to us for how to behave in certain situations and most of the children on our field are at an impressionable age. When we show a lack of sportsmanship we are setting an example for our children that they will carry with them from this point on.
At the beginning of the season all parents and spectators were asked to sign a code of conduct for the season. Below are just a few points from this code of conduct that need to be reinforced.
I will support the coaches, players and cheerleaders and help teach the values of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play.
I will accept decisions of the game officials (including coaches) on the field as being fair and called to the best ability of said officials. The officials are in charge of the games; their decisions are final. (If there are noticeable problems with the officiating at any of our games rest assured that notice will be given to the proper people. The officiating needs to be handled by the coaches and administrators of the team and league not by parents on the sidelines)
I will exhibit exemplary sportsmanship at all times.
I will not criticize coaches or officials, direct abuse or profane language at them or otherwise subvert their authority.
I will not criticize an opposing team, its players, coaches or spectators by word of mouth, gestures or inciting unsportsmanlike behavior.
The WVVA Southern Mountain Football League of which we are a part has set forth consequences for unsportsmanlike actions that follow:
Any person/persons that disturbs any little league game whether it be in the stands on the sideline, ECT...towards an official, child or player, coach. Other spectator will be asked to settle down. This will cover anything from unsportsmanlike conduct, physical aggression or any other act considered to be harmful or violent. If the person does not adhere to these rules or policies they will then be escorted, by the uniformed personnel, either by security or an officer, out of the ball game. They will also be suspended for the following game. Should this behavior occur from the same person again at any other Southern Mountain Football League game/event, they will be banned from the WWVASMFL for life.
1st occurrence - verbal warning
2nd occurrence - leave the current event
3rd occurrence - out of WVVASMFL PERMANENTLY
When we display unsportsmanlike conduct at any of our events it reflects badly on the organization, its players, coaches and administrators. All we are asking is that any spectators please try to control their emotions on the sidelines and let problems be handled with the proper procedures. These rules and consequences will be followed with zero tolerance. We want to make this an enjoyable experience for the children playing and cheering.
