    • Meetings cover league and coach policies and expectations.

  • All teams will have a Culture Keeper. This is someone who helps support the coach and league in ensuring other team parents/guardians and players follow the mission and goals of Youth Sports and the Positive Play Project. The Culture Keeper is another parent/guardian, family member, etc of a team member who remains a spectator on the sidelines at team practices and games whose responsibility is to support the league and coach. Here are some examples of things the Culture Keeper can help with: encouraging spectators to cheer on the kids, demonstrating great sportsmanship, helping answer parents’ questions about the game rules, and helping with water and snacks. Please note:  the culture keeper is not a coach and may not coach or take on any coach responsibilities. The Culture Keeper should be able to attend all (or most) games.

  • Participants should bring a bottle of water with their name on it to keep hydrated at practices and games. Water fountains and/or jugs will be available as well at games.
