  5. I will encourage good sportsmanship from fellow MCS FC parents, coaches, officials and players at all times.
  6. I will always remember that soccer is an opportunity to learn, have fun and remember that the game is for the players, not for the parents.
  7. I will do the best I can each day to remember that all players have talents and weaknesses the same as my child does.
