Conduct and Etiquette for Parents

Hello Parents,
In order to promote the healthiest and most enjoyable environment for players, families, coaches, officials, and others, RUSC requires a signed Conduct Commitment form each seasonal year. These will be given to you by your player's coach and come either from the league or the club. Below is a sample of the club form which is very similar to the league form. I also highly recommend the following article from US Youth Soccer, with whom RUSC is affiliated.

Thanks for your commitment to great soccer for our players!
