Parent Code of Conduct

As a condition of the minor child’s participation in Ignite FC, I agree to strictly comply with the Ignite FC Parent Code of Conduct. That Code of Conduct is as follows:

I will refrain from coaching my child from the sideline of any match, training, academy activity, or other official Ignite FC event. Instead, I will only provide positive encouragement to my child’s participation, and I will emphasize that the game is played for fun and to learn for the benefit of the youth, not adults. In furtherance of that requirement, I agree to act as a positive role model by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and game officials regardless of facts or circumstances, including those related to race, creed, color, gender, religion, or ability.

I will refrain from criticizing the game officials, and will respect their authority and decisions during games. I will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, parent, or spectator such as booing and taunting, refusing to shake hands, or using profane language or gestures.

I will teach my child to play within the spirit and intentions of the rules and Laws of the Game. I will never place the value of winning over the safety and welfare of the players. I will demand a sports environment free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and will refrain from their use at all sporting events.

I will NOT encourage, invite, nor recruit any player from an opposing team or club to join my child’s team, outside of the UYSA transfer window.

I will NOT solicit, invite, nor recruit any Ignite FC player or players family, or otherwise seek to promote the interest of another team or club with which my child or family may be associated, outside of the UYSA transfer window.

I understand that if I fail to abide by the aforementioned Code of Conduct, I will be subject to discipline from Ignite FC, or Utah Youth Soccer Association, that could include, but is not limited to the following sanctions: (a) verbal warning by an official, team coach, and/or head of the league organization; (b) forfeiture of a match through an official or team coach; or (c) parental suspension with written documentation to be kept on file with Ignite FC and Utah Youth Soccer Association.
