Code of Ethics

            The following Code of Ethics has been developed in compliance with standards as set forth by the Mississippi Goal Chasers Youth Track and Field Organization.

            Our Coaches are the “face” of the program to our parents, athletes, officials, our schools, and our community at large. Thus, each coach is expected to maintain a high level of integrity and professionalism both on and off the field. A Coach’s primary responsibility is to develop good citizens and athletes, and to instill a passion for the sport in the players. Thus, our coach’s performance is not measured by wins and losses, rather in what he/she teaches the players in terms of technique, sportsmanship, and fair play. 

All coaches of the Mississippi Goal Chasers Youth Track and Field Organization will be expected to adhere to the following rules and guidelines at all activities on or off the track. The following is as listed:

  1. Place the emotional and physical well-being of each athlete ahead of a personal desire to win;

  2. Treat each athlete as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group;

  3. Provide a safe playing situation for each athlete;

  4. Review and practice basic first aid principles needed to treat injuries of each athlete;

  5. Organize practices that are fun and challenging for all athletes.

  6. Lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all athletes. 

  7. Provide a sports environment for the team that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and refrain from use at all youth sports events.

  8. Build and maintain ethical and professional relationships with other coaches, assistant coaches and administrators.

  9. Promote personal fitness and nutrition. Be modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
