Player Code of Conduct

Player’s responsibilities are simple; be respectful of others, be responsible, play fair, and always do your best, and always exhibit good sportsmanship.

As an ETJ participant I hereby pledge that I will:  

  • Encourage good sportsmanship from fellow players, coaches, officials, and parents.
  • Be a team player and support my teammates.
  • Be on time and attend every practice and game that I can, and will notify my coaches if I cannot.
  • Work hard to improve my skills.
  • Do my best to listen and learn from my coaches.
  • Encourage my parents to be involved with my team in some capacity.
  • Congratulate the other team after each game as a demonstration of sportsmanship.
  • Refrain from using violence, unfriendly language, or insults to others.
  • Be generous when I win and gracious when I lose.
  • Obey the rules of the game and always work for the good of the team.
  • Accept the decisions of the officials with grace and never challenge or question calls.  Refrain from challenging or questioning on-field calls by officials and/or managers and coaches.
  • Conduct myself with honor and dignity.
  • Applaud the efforts of my teammates and opponents.

I also agree that if I fail to abide by the aforementioned rules and guidelines, I will be subject to disciplinary action levied by the ETJ Board of Directors that could include but is not limited to the following:  

  • Player suspension for games
  • Player suspension for season including postseason (All Stars & TOC)
