Spectator Code of Conduct

HotShots believes very strongly in creating a positive atmosphere and demonstrating good sportsmanship. Being a positive spectator is the first step in making this happen for our kids. 

The following code applies to all parents, family members, and guests of players. Failure to comply with this code can result in expulsion of offending spectators from league practices and games.


  1. You are your child’s number one role model.
  2. Allow the coach to coach the team! Keep your sideline comments to supportive ones only. Do not yell instructions to the players, coaches, or officials.
  3. Treat all participants (players, coaches, officials, and spectators) with the same respect that you would want for your own child.
  5. Help the coach and your player by making sure the player is on time and properly equipped for all practices and games.
  6. Learn all you can about the game. Before you attempt to interpret the laws of the game, be sure you know and understand them. HotShots follows Washington State High School Rules, with some exceptions.CLICK HERE for a complete list of game rules.
  7. Show your appreciation for good play, no matter who makes it.
  8. Remember the game is for the players and no one else. Do all you can to support the players.
  9. Help your player understand that good sportsmanship is an important quality. Lead by example.
  10. Support the coach, the officials, and the league, as they strive to give your child a positive experience. Volunteer when you can. Say “thanks” to those who give their free time.


Together we can build the best possible sports experience for our children!
