Honor the Game


Dear Parents/Players/Fans-

TVYLL is proud to be affiliated with and a grant recipient of the Positive Coaching Alliance and have required ALL our coaches to be certified by taking a two hour course which includes the following powerful easily remembered component:  ROOTS

As we look forward to the Spring season, please help us Honor the Game by following the ROOTS example:

R is for Rules:
Rules allow us to keep the game fair. If we win by ignoring or violating the rules, what is the value of our victory? TVYLL believes that honoring the letter AND the spirit of the rule is important.

O is for Opponents:
Without an opponent, there would be no competition. Rather than demeaning a strong or weak opponent, we need to honor both strong and weak opponents because they challenge us to do our best as players and as leaders. Athletes can be both fierce and friendly during the same competition (in one moment giving everything to get to a loose ball, and in the next moment helping an opponent up). Coaches showing respect for opposing coaches and players sets the tone for the rest of the team.  On the same note, parents on the spectator side should applaud great play by other teams even if the results are not what they had hoped for.  Comments about players abilities should be kept to oneself.  Please remember that we have both experienced and new players every year so we need to encourage and applaud them all.  

O is for Officials: (VERY IMPORTANT) 
Respecting officials, even when we disagree with their calls, may be the toughest part of Honoring the Game. We must remember that officials are not perfect (just like coaches, athletes and parents!). Take time to think about how to best approach an official when you want to discuss a call. What strategies do you have to keep yourself in control when you start to get upset with officials' calls? We must remember that the loss of officials (and finding enough in the first place) is a major problem in most youth sports organizations, and we can find a solution by consistently respecting officials.  Never confront an official in front of players.  Always finish the game by shaking their hands and saying "Thank You!".

T is for Teammates:
It's easy for young athletes to think solely about their own performance, but we want athletes to realize that being part of a team requires thinking about and respecting one's teammates. This respect needs to carry beyond the field/gym/track/pool into the classroom and social settings. Athletes need to be reminded that their conduct away from practices and games will reflect back on their teammates and the league, club, or school.

S is for Self:
Athletes should be encouraged to live up to their own highest personal standard of Honoring the Game, even when their opponents are not. An athlete's respect for themselves and their own standards must come first.
