Parent Code of Conduct 

Thank you for being a member of the Walnut Creek Surf Soccer Club. Below is our Parent Code of Conduct, so please make sure to read through and understand that this is a condition for participation in WCSSC.

  1. I agree to present myself as a positive role model while representing WCSSC at any soccer game, tournament or training session.
  2. I agree to support all players at any team game, tournament or training session. I will respect the fact that this game is for the players, and will only provide positive communication from the sideline.
  3. I will refrain from any form of negative communication or confrontation with the opposing team’s parents, coaches and players.
  4. I will refrain from coaching my own or any other child during the course of a game or at training.
  5. I will refrain from communicating with the referees before, during and after any game. As a parent, I will not question calls of the referee under any circumstance.
  6. I am committed to make every effort to get my child to all trainings, games, and team events.
  7. I will discuss any constructive concerns I have about players or the program in the following order: Coach first, Director of Coaching second, General Manager, third and finally with the club’s Grievance Committee. I understand that the coaches, managers and directors are dedicated to providing a quality soccer experience through training and team events.
  8. In the event an issue or concern is not addressed or special circumstances deem it needs to be brought to the attention of the club’s General Manager or a member of the Board or Committee, I will contact club General Manager or member who will assist in addressing my concern as noted in the “Complaint Process” in Appendix A of the WCSC League Policies, Rules, and Regulations.
  9. As a parent, I will respect the coaching staff during all games and trainings. I will never question, discuss or confront the coach during or right after any game. I understand that a ’24 hour’ cooling off period is in effect and that I will only approach the coach staff after 24 hours. I further understand that I will encourage my child to first approach the coach to discuss any on-field issues. Should this not resolve the issue, I will request a parent/player/coach meeting.
  10. I will abide by the WCSSC League Policies, Rules, and Guidelines and WCSC Competitive Rules and Guidelines.


I agree that if I fail to abide by any of the rules listed above that I may be subject to, but not limited by the following disciplinary action:

  1. Verbal or written warning
  2. Suspension from attending games, tournaments and trainings from the WCSSC Disciplinary Committee. Expulsion from the team/club (Management Committee vote)
