Terms & Conditions

Player Manifesto:

  • I accept responsibility for my behavior on and off the field. I understand that what I do and say affects my teammates, school, and other people either positively or negatively.
  • I lead courageously and live with integrity by speaking up against injustice and on behalf of others even when it is hard or unpopular.
  • I act with respect toward myself and the people and things around me including my parents, my coaches, my teammates, my teachers, my opponents, and the spectators.
  • I do not put people in boxes according to their race, gender, religion, neighborhood, sexual orientation or abilities.  I judge people by the content of their character.
  • I act with empathy. I try to understand what is going on in the hearts and minds of others and what is causing those feelings so that I can be supportive and encouraging. I ask, “How can I help you?”
  • I serve as a role model at all times by talking politely and acting courteously toward coaches, teammates, opponents, officials, and spectators. I understand that it is a privilege to represent my family, school and community as a student-athlete.
  • I give 100% effort to practices, games, and events. I understand that effort demonstrates my commitment to the team and my respect for my coaches and teammates.
  • I display good sportsmanship. I acknowledge and applaud the efforts of others. I encourage my teammates with positive statements. I refrain from boasting to my teammates and ‘trash-talking’ to members of other teams. I accept defeat graciously by congratulating my opponents on a game well played.
Because I represent my family, school, and team, I abide by the policies, rules and guidelines of the school, team, and coaches.

Parent Manifesto: 

  • I understand and endorse the purpose of the SixFifty program: to help boys become men and girls become women of empathy and integrity who will lead, be responsible, and change the world for good.
  • I support the coaches by applauding behaviors in my child and teammates that demonstrate characteristics of integrity, empathy, sacrifice, and responsibility.
  • I acknowledge and appreciate every player’s growth towards maturity and efforts toward establishing stronger relationships with teammates, coaches, and themselves.
  • I affirm my child and teammates when good character, healthy sportsmanship, and other-centered behaviors are displayed. I will not only affirm athletic performance or a victory.
  • I serve as a role model for our players talking politely and acting courteously towards coaches, officials, other parents, visiting team parents, and spectators at practices, games, and meetings.
  • I model good sportsmanship. Acknowledge and applaud the efforts of team members and opponents. Accept defeat graciously by congratulating the members of the opposing team on a game well played. 
  • I support the team regardless of how much or how little my child plays or what the win-loss record is.
  • I encourage my child and teammates with positive statements, even when they make mistakes because: 
  1. At every practice they are growing physically and emotionally. 
  2. At every practice they are learning moral and ethical lessons. 
  3. At every practice they are developing character.
  • I refrain from boasting about my child’s accomplishments.
  • When problems or questions arise, I have my child present the problem to the coach. This develops self-advocacy. After meeting with their coach, if the issue requires more clarity, I will contact the coach.
Because I am a parent with the power, position, and platform to make a positive difference in the lives of all players, I commit to this code of conduct. When failing to live up to these standards, I will allow for accountability and take responsibility for my actions.
