Maple Grove Youth Football Association Code of Conduct

Maple Grove Youth Football Association (MGYFA) believes that: participation in any sports program plays an important role in promoting the physical, social, and emotional development of our youth. It is essential for MGYFA to provide a positive and enjoyable learning experience for youth, teaching sportsmanship, fair play, integrity, honor, respect, loyalty, personal courage, and dedication through the game of football. Furthermore, parents, coaches, spectators, and officials involved in youth sports events should be models of such statements and should lead by example by demonstrating fairness, respect, and self-control. MGYFA has established this Code of Conduct and requires that you commit to be responsible for your words and actions while attending, or participating in all events and that you conform your behavior to the following Code of Conduct:
