As a member of the Madison Area Youth Soccer Association (MAYSA), SPSC has adopted its Code of Conduct. Please read and support the following code to keep soccer flourishing in Sun Prairie!
MAYSA Code of Ethics and Conduct for Coaches, Players, Parents and Spectators
MAYSA has a Code of Conduct for coaches, players, and parents/spectators. In general, each person involved with MAYSA activity is expected to keep our activities safe, fun and fair.
The Madison Area Youth Soccer Association (MAYSA) Code of Ethics & Conduct is intended to help all members become the best they can be. MAYSA members include players, teams, parents, coaches, clubs and administrators. All are challenged to not only meet a high standard of sportsmanship, Fair Play and respect for the game, but to set a high standard regardless of the actions or behavior of others.
All members are encouraged to be familiar with the FIFA Laws of the Game and any US Youth Soccer, Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association or MAYSA adaptations. In addition, all members are expected to show the utmost respect to referees at all times and abide by MAYSA’s Zero Tolerance Policy regarding abuse towards referees. Members need not agree with the decisions of referees but are fully expected to accept and abide by the decisions.
Players & Teams
Parents & Spectators
Club Administrators, Directors and Other Staff
Any players, coaches, parents or administrators who violate the MAYSA Code of Ethics & Conduct or its intent may be subject to any or all of the following: a formal/written warning, suspensions ranging from a single game to a lifetime ban or other sanctions at the discretion of MAYSA Competitive Committee.
SPSC and MAYSA reserve the right to apply the “Common Sense Rule” to any actions by players, coaches, parents and spectators and club administrators which may not be specifically addressed by the Code of Ethics & Conduct. The SPSC Board of Directors and Staff and the MAYSA Board of Directors and Staff will also be expected to hold themselves accountable to the MAYSA Code of Ethics & Conduct.
Misconduct Toward Game Officials
Misconduct toward game officials is prohibited per USSF Policy 531-9. Any action falling under this category of conduct is under the jurisdiction of Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA). Should any claim of Misconduct toward game officials be substantiated, offending individual will immediately be suspended for three games and be subject to any additional sanctions and/or fines issued by WYSA.
No Tolerance Policy
MAYSA has created the No Tolerance Policy in an effort to decrease the abuse of referees. If a coach, player or fan is harassing a referee, the referee has the right to take the following measures to cease harassment:
A referee should never approach an offending parent or fan. A referee should communicate with the coach only, and do so privately. If a situation occurs where the referee has to stop the game because of unruly behavior, they should complete the Game Report Form and send it in to MAYSA within 24 hours of the incident. In cases of Referee Abuse, information will immediately be forwarded to the WYSA State office for investigation and discipline decisions.
All coaches, team staff, players, and spectators are expected to understand and observe the Code of Conduct and MAYSA's No Tolerance Policy. Violations of the Code of Conduct should be reported, in writing, to MAYSA's Executive Director via regular mail, fax, or email. All documented reports of Code of Conduct violations will be kept on permanent file at the MAYSA office. Any action to be taken against any party as a result of reports made to MAYSA will be at the discretion of the Executive Director or MAYSA's Board of Directors. Some general rules of conduct to be observed by everyone:
