The Code of Conduct is developed to define the standards of ethical and moral behavior from parent/guardians of players participating with Leavenworth Soccer Association.
- Support and Encourage: I will support my child's participation in soccer and encourage them to have fun, develop their skills, and enjoy the game.
- Respect for Coaches and Officials: I will respect the authority and decisions of the coaches and game officials, even if I disagree with them. I understand that they are doing their best to provide a positive experience for the players.
- Positive Role Model: I will be a positive role model for my child by demonstrating good sportsmanship, respect for others, and fair play always. I will respect the facilities, equipment, and property of the hosting organization and ensure my child does the same.
- No Yelling or Criticizing: I will not yell at, criticize, or berate my child, their teammates, coaches, opponents, or officials. I will provide constructive feedback and support in a respectful manner.
- Conflict Resolution: If I have concerns or conflicts, I will address them privately and respectfully with the coach or appropriate league officials, following the proper channels for resolution.
- Cheering and Applauding: I will cheer for all players, not just my child, and applaud good plays from both teams. I will not engage in negative comments or taunting towards players, coaches, or officials.
- Safety: I will support and encourage safety measures, such as proper equipment, injury prevention, and compliance with safety guidelines.
- No Pressure: I will not put excessive pressure on my child to perform at a level beyond their capability, and I will focus on their development and enjoyment rather than winning at all costs.
- Privacy: I will respect the privacy and confidentiality of other players and their families, avoiding gossip or sharing sensitive information.
- Compliance with Rules and Regulations: I will ensure that my child and I are aware of and comply with all league rules, codes of conduct, and policies.

According to Wikipedia, Futsal is a football-based game, variation of minifootball played on a hard court, smaller than a football pitch, and mainly indoors. It has similarities to five-a-side football and indoor soccer.
Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor soccer, the game is played on a hard court surface marked by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is played with a smaller, harder, low-bounce ball than football. The surface, ball and rules together favour ball control and passing in small spaces. The game's emphasis is "on improvisation, creativity and technique."
