Player Code of Conduct

Player Code of Conduct

Polaris Soccer Club is designed to provide an opportunity for local players to participate in the game of soccer and promote the health, growth and development of each participant. That development is not only though the building of soccer knowledge, skills and motivation to play the game, but also through acquiring the necessary habits of self-discipline, self-respect and respect for fellow players and coaches. Players are expected to conduct themselves, at all times, in a manner which promotes the values of the Polaris SC.

Respect for the property of others and adherence to the guidelines detailed in the Polaris SC Philosophy are expected of all players participating in the club.
