Madison Youth Lacrosse CODE OF CONDUCT
~ HONOR THE GAME ~
Lacrosse should be fun for players, coaches and parents.
Madison Youth Lacrosse believes that girls and boys should develop skills and a love for the game of lacrosse while also learning the value of sportsmanship.

 
To enable the athletes who wish to play lacrosse under MYL’s philosophy of a positive experience, learn to play and love the game and to nurture within them a sense of respect for others, Madison Youth Lacrosse has developed this "Code of Conduct" for players, coaches and parents.

 
Players-
  1. “HONOR THE GAME” of lacrosse. Display good sportsmanship at all times on and off the field. Set a positive example.
  2. Respect your teammates, coaches, referees and opponents at all times, even when others do not. Coaches and referees give their time for your benefit and should be respected.
  3. Give 100% effort at each practice and game.
  4. Support and encourage your teammates. Players should understand that lacrosse is a team game, and they should strive to be "team players."
  5. Know the rules of the game of lacrosse and abide by them.
  6. Wear the required equipment at all games and practices, and keep your equipment well maintained.
  7. Don't be afraid to make mistakes; that is part of learning.
  8. Be modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
  9. Obscene language or gestures will not be tolerated.
