To help develop and maintain a positive “Pioneer Culture”, parents on the team serve as “Culture Keepers”. The job of the Culture Keepers is to reinforce sideline behavior that reflects our positive culture, “the way we do things here.”


The Booster Club supports a positive “Pioneer Culture”. As players, parents, and coaches, we must adhere to the US Lacrosse Code of Conduct and honor the game. Failure to adhere to this code of conduct may result in the loss of privileges to be involved in the girl’s lacrosse program. Players, coaches, spectators, and parents are to conduct themselves in a manner that “Honors the Game” and demonstrates respect to other players, coaches, officials, and spectators. In becoming a member of the lacrosse community, an individual assumes certain obligations and responsibilities to the game of lacrosse and its participants. The essential elements in this code of conduct are HONESTY and INTEGRITY. Those who conduct themselves in a manner that reflects these elements will bring credit to the sport of lacrosse, themselves, their team, and their organization. We support US Lacrosse and the following behaviors for those participating or involved in any way:
  • Sportsmanship and teaching the concepts of fair play are essential to the game and must be taught and developed both at home and on the field during practices and games
  • The emphasis on winning should never be placed above the value of good sportsmanship, the concepts of fair play, or the skills of the game • Derogatory comments are unacceptable. Use positive reinforcement with players and adults alike. It should be remembered that criticism once made can never be retracted
  • The safety and welfare of the players are of primary importance
  • Adults involved with the game must never permit anyone to openly or maliciously criticize badger, harass, or threaten an official
  • Knowledge of the Rules of Lacrosse must be respected and adhered to by all who participate in the game of lacrosse, both in the letter and the spirit of the game


The following are tips from Positive Coaching Alliance of ways that parents can contribute to a positive youth sports culture so our children will have fun and learn positive character traits to last a lifetime.


  • Commit to Honoring the Game in action and language no matter what others may do
  • Tell your children before each game that you will be proud of them regardless of how well they perform


  • Fill your children’s “Emotional Tanks” through praise and positive recognition to help them play their best
  • Fill their teammates’ tanks, too!
  • Do not instruct your child during game action or at breaks; let the coaches coach
  • Cheer good plays by both teams
  • Mention good calls by the official to other parents
  • If you disagree with an official’s call, Honor the Game – BE SILENT!
  • If other spectators yell at officials, gently remind them to Honor the Game
  • Don’t do anything in the heat of the moment that you will regret after the game. Ask yourself, “What do I want to model right now for my child?”
  • Remember to have fun and enjoy the game.


  • Thank the officials for doing a difficult job for little or no pay
  • Thank the coaches for their commitment and effort
  • When reviewing the game with your children, ask rather than tell. Instead of immediately sharing your opinions or telling them how they can improve, ask questions such as “What did you learn from that game?” or “What was your favorite play?” or “What was the most fun part of that game?”
  • Remember to give your children truthful and specific praise…not just the typical “good game” but, for example, “I saw how well you moved your feet on defense.”
  • Tell your children again that you are proud of them whether the team won or lost
