ACYO Conduct And Safety
ACYO also has strict codes of conduct and concerns about the safety of all youth. Everybody involved has to agree to the code of conduct, and this includes players, parents, and coaches. The environment should be kept positive and encouraging for each player and participant. Even though these teams enjoy a lot of success, the main goal of the program is to promote positive behavior on and off the field. The code of conduct also reminds that participation in these events is a privilege, and it is not a right.
In addition, the group does everything they can to keep players as safe as possible. They post memos about preparing for the Atlanta heat, preventing head injuries, and much more. These articles cover the basics of preventing injuries and health problems, and they also tell participants and parents how to recognize the signs of a serious injury so that treatment can be sought. Please take the time to read through the information provided, and it can help your child have a safe and positive experience on the field.
