What are the Club expectations?
We ask that you help us achieve our goal of creating the best environment possible for our FWFC players, our coaches, and our parents. The following Code of Ethics has been developed to clarify and distinguish approved and accepted professional, ethical, and moral behavior from that which is detrimental to the development of soccer within Washington Youth Soccer (WYS).
FWFC players will be asked to sign and abide by our Player Code of Ethics at all times. Players are expected to attend all practice sessions and games and to be on-time and prepared. Players are expected to follow the rules and policies set forth by the Club, state, and national soccer associations and will practice good sportsmanship.
Player Code of Ethics
FWFC parents will be asked to sign and abide by our Parent Pledge at all times. Parents will show respect to all individuals involved with the game (players, parents, and coaches of both teams, referees, and field staff.)
