Mid-Ohio Youth Football League 7/2008 MEMO

To: From: Subject:

All M.O.Y.F.L. Coaching Staff M.O.Y.F.L. Board of Directors Spectator/Parent Behavior

The Mid-Ohio Youth Football League has discussed an increasing concern with the number and severity of incidents of parental violence and misbehavior in youth sports. The board has decided to present each parent who has a child participating in the M.O.Y.F.L. with a Parents Code of Conduct to read and return a signed copy to their teams head coach who will turn in to the secretary to go on file with the league. Everyone is aware of the tragic death of the hockey dad in suburban Boston. I’m sure no one wants to see violent or profane occurrences happen in the M.O.Y.F.L. We would like to include in our by-laws a policy to specify the possible penalties for unacceptable parental behavior. In some rare cases, it may be necessary to prohibit participation of a child in the M.O.Y.F.L. due to repeated instances of inappropriate actions or words by a parent, guardian, or family member. As a board, we would like to be proactive, not reactive in dealing with such unfortunate behavior. Let us make our best efforts to allow our youth in the M.O.Y.F.L. to have fun without rude or intimidating interruptions from parents and adults.
