Code of Ethics

The coach is expected to conduct him/herself in a sportsman-like manner and lead his/her team not only by words, but also by example. The coach should at all times be a positive role model to his/her players. It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure that athletics is a rewarding experience for each player by promoting an attitude of support and encouragement among all team members. This Code of Ethics applies to assistant coaches as well.

The athlete is expected to exhibit the highest degree of cooperation, enthusiasm, and sportsmanship at each athletic event. Each athlete is an ambassador of Nativity Catholic School and is expected to demonstrate moral behavior parallel to that which is expected of them during each school day. Each athlete should always exhibit honorable behavior toward his/her coach, the officials, his/her teammates, and the opposing players and coaches. A Nativity Catholic School athlete is expected to accept victory or defeat in a positive, dignified manner.

The parent is expected to support his/her child and the coach in a positive way in order to reinforce the moral values which are taught at Nativity Catholic School. Each parent should refrain from being critical of the coaches and/or officials, and each should understand that his/her child must learn to cope with the situation, no matter how adverse. Each parent should demonstrate to his/her child that success is built through hard work and dedication, not excuses.

Transportation Procedures for After School Sporting Events

It is the responsibility of the athlete and the parent(s) to arrange transportation for their child to and from practices and after-school sporting events. You are encouraged to make arrangements with other families in advance if you are unable to drive to an event. Nativity Catholic School coaches will not be responsible for arranging car pools and are not allowed to transport athletes to and from games.

If you are releasing your child to another parent for transportation to an event, you are required to send a written request to your child’s homeroom teacher. In this request please ask the teacher to release your child to the driver(s) who will be transporting him/her. This request may include more than one driver and may be good for the entire season of the sport.
