It is therefore essential for parents, coaches, spectators and officials to encourage youth athletes to embrace the values of good sportsmanship. Moreover, adults involved in youth sports events should be models of good sportsmanship and should lead by example by demonstrating fairness, respect and self control.
One objective of the Activity Code of Conduct is to enhance the enjoyment of the activity by the participants and will be in effect before, during and immediately after all City of Redding activities when on City controlled property.
