Buffalo & Western New York Junior Soccer League
was founded and is run for the youth of Western New York, that play
soccer in our league. We wish to develop and promote youth soccer
and to encourage participation in healthy, competitive soccer, based
on good sportsmanship. This pledge is part of our continuing effort
to upgrade the standard of our commitment to the youth of Western
New York. As adults we all have the responsibility to act in a
manner that reflects our commitment to the youth, officials and the
sport of soccer. As a coach you have enormous responsibility to
conduct yourself in a manner that reflects good sportsmanship and
respect for players, fans, officials and the game itself.

tobacco at all league games and team practices.

Curtail rough play, promote respect and
