Respect Campaign - Club Code of Conduct
For years, the USA Club has functioned under a Code of Conduct for our players, coaches, AND families. Now, as an extension of the RESPECT Campaign initiated in the European professional soccer ranks and recently adopted by our league, we have extended our code to include the League's Codes of Conduct ... AND we now require each coach, player, and family to read, understand, and sign-off on the codes (and they are maintained by the Club for reference if needed).
To this end, follow this RESPECT link to read and download the Codes of Conduct underwhich we play. There is one for coaches, another for players, and a third for families. If you have not done so, please download, read, sign and submit the appropriate document(s) to our Club Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The USA Soccer Club strives to put the well-being of our players above all else. In keeping with the state and federal Heads-Up Concussion Awareness Program, our Club has developed a process for coaches and parents to follow in the event of a potential concussive head injury.
