Parents, players and coaches are required to follow the team’s code of conduct.  Major violations may result in a variety of consequences, including player suspension and parental bans.  Any such action will be decided by the officers of Coventry Soccer after hearing from all sides of the situation.  Coaches are responsible for their players and for controlling their sidelines.  Disruptive parents who do not follow coach’s instructions may cause the coach to be red-carded, the game forfeited, or the game abandoned by the referee.

Any issues regarding the Code of Conduct should be discussed with the Head Coach.  If situation is such that the Coach has not adequately addressed the situation, contact the Travel Coordinator(contact info on CSA website).
