Additional comments

I understand that the children on my team have been placed under my guidance. Further, I understand that any negative personal habits that I have (smoking, alcohol, profanity, etc) may have a negative affect on a child's development. Therefore, I commit to setting a worthy behavioral example for them to look. I commit to treating others with respect (players, parents, volunteers) and will make every effort to encourage any individual involved within this program and will avoid open criticism. I will also make every effort to be thoroughly familiar with the league's volleyball rules and procedures, and I commit to follow those rules and procedures to the best of my ability. I will commit to ensuring all volunteer duties and responsibilities be fulfilled as outlined in the coach manual. I understand that it is a League policy to perform a background check on each coach participating in this program. I commit to maintaining a working email address, checking it regularly, and will notify the League Administration of a change.

I agree to follow the above guidelines for behavior and participation as a Youth Volleyball Coach and agree to attend the required Coach Development Conference, to be held the evening of Thursday, March 15. (enter initials)
