KDMSC Code of Conduct

Kincardine District Minor Soccer Club Code of Conduct

Codes of Conduct are an essential part of sport rage prevention.  They outline the agreed standard of behaviour for a club's coaches, referees, parents and players.  This code has been developed in consultation with other leading clubs in Ontario to benchmark best practices in sport.  There are 3 important considerations:

  1. Gain compliance by having members agree to the code of conduct.
  2. Remind members of the code on a regular basis.
  3. KDMSC demonstrates due diligence and actively supports a Code of Conduct.

All incidents or allegations regarding violations of the KDMSC Code of Conduct will be treated with the confidentiality and privacy.  All cases and/or reports of violations will be reviewed by the KDMSC Executive to determine merit, severity and recommended course of action.  Disciplinary action may include any of the following:

  • Education and coaching of the incident
  • Education and coaching with parent present
  • Verbal or written reprimand
  • Verbal or written apology
  • Removal from team(s)
  • Suspension from competition(s)
  • Involvement of authorities (Ontario Provincial Police)
  • Qualifications revoked

The Executive reserves the right to suggest and enforce alternative forms of discipline as required.
