The following ECNL Players Code of Conduct is provided as a guideline to help players in the ECNL maximize their individual potential and to succeed as a quality player and person.
I will be committed to developing myself as a soccer player by attending every team training that I possibly can, understanding that regular training is the foundation for competitive success, and will notify my coaches as early as possible of any training absences.
I understand that character is as important to success as is ability, and will demonstrate the highest level of character at all times.
I understand that striving to win, which consists of 100% physical and mental commitment to performing to the best of my ability, is more important than winning.
I will demonstrate personal accountability by accepting responsibility for my own actions, and for my own performances, on and off the field.
I understand that individual training is an integral part of the development process, and will commit to regular individual training.
I will treat my coaches, other players, officials and fans with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or abilities.
I will not engage in any behavior that would endanger the health, safety, or well being of a coach, parent, player, participant, league official or any other attendee.
I will not use profanity or engage in verbal or physical threats or abuse aimed at any coach, parent, player, participant, league official or any other attendee.
I will demonstrate good sportsmanship in my actions, before, during and after the game, regardless of the result of the game or my own performance.
I will always show respect for those involved in the game, whether they are players, coaches, trainers, referees, administrators, or parents, and will not ridicule or demean another player, coach, parent, referee, trainer, administrator or parent.
I will not use alcohol or illegal drugs.
I will respect the facilities on which I train and compete, and will leave them clean and in good condition
