Some reminders of the Parents and Coaches Code of Ethics and behavior at soccer games

--Do not openly question an official's judgment and honesty. Officials are symbols of fair play, integrity, and sportsmanship.
The referees are trying diligently to make the correct decision. 
--Remember that your child learns by example. Children mimic what their parents say. 
Criticism of the coach, officials, teammates, and/or opponents fosters bad attitudes and can only lead to a negative experience for your child.
--A parent must never be verbally or physically violent or threatening with any coach, parent, player, or representative of their Member Association or NTSSA.
--The opponents are necessary friends; without them your child could not participate.

--Always be positive with your comments
