WHAT IS GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP?

Killeen Parks and Recreation regards bad sportsmanship as unnecessary and completely intolerable.

Good sportsmanship is when people who are playing or watching a sport treat each other with respect. This includes players, parents, coaches, and officials.

WHAT'S A PARENT'S ROLE IN GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP?

Kids learn how to be a good sport from the adults in their lives, especially their parents and their coaches. As soon as your child starts competing in sports, it's important to be a good role model. Any teams your child plays on should have coaches that encourage good sportsmanship.

Zero-Tolerance Policy

All games are in the hands of the Killeen Parks & Recreation staff and every player, coach, and spectator is required to respect their authority. Unsportsmanlike conduct such as profane language, indulgence of alcoholic beverages before or during a game, fighting, etc. will not be tolerated. Any unsportsmanlike conduct by players, coaches, and/or spectators may result in the removal of the individual from the facility and/or league. Violations of the rule by a parent may result in the removal of his/her child from the team for the remainder of the season.
