I will leave the coaching to the coaching staff in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteers who give their time to the AJFL.

I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all AJFL events.

I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials with respect regardless of race, sex creed, or ability.

I understand that it is my responsibility to make my guests aware of, and abide by the terms of this Code of Conduct.

I will remember that that the game is for youth not adults, and I will do my very best to make the AJFL experience fun for my child.
