Welcome to the new home of Mt. Rainier Futbol Club!


At Mt.Rainier FC (MRFC), we believe that the impact of youth sports can and should enhance the character of our athletes and our community. Our framework surrounding MRFC’s principles and values (Community, Integrity, Dedication, Teamwork and Competition)  will be adopted and practiced by the members of our club. Players, coaches, parents, and fans who follow this framework can help reinforce what youth sports are all about – enjoyment for our children.

I acknowledge that if I fail to abide by MRFC Code of Ethics, I will be subject to disciplinary action that could include but is not limited to the following:

  • Verbal warning by the organizations involved
  • Written warning by the organizations involved
  • Game suspension by the organizations involved
  • Game forfeit through the official or coach
  • Season, club, or league suspension by the organizations involved


Player Responsibilities:

As a MRFC player, I adhere to the following: 

  1. Play the game for the fun of the game- not just to please my parents or coach.
  2. I will learn to play by the Laws of the Game.
  3. I will be a positive role model by showing sportsmanship, respect, and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, and spectators.
  4. Be modest and generous when I win and gracious when I lose.
  5. I will remember that the goals of the game are to have fun and improve my skills.
  6. Show respect for the authority of the referee, even though I will sometimes disagree with his/her/their calls.
  7. Control my temper and not retaliate, even if I believe I have been wronged.
  8. Treat other players as I would like to be treated.
  9. Not use or possess tobacco, alcohol, or illegal performance-enhancing drugs. 


Parent/Guardian Responsibilities:

As a MRFC parent, I adhere to the following: 

  1. Golden Rule: Always treat others (coaches, parents, officials, and players) the same way that you would want you and your child to be treated. Set the example by showing respect, dignity, and total sportsmanship at all times. Avoid profanity, especially when players or younger family members of players are present on the sidelines or at designated team events.
  2. Remember why? Remember you are setting the example for your player. They look up to you and will follow your steps and ask to remember this program is for the kids. If you find yourself becoming overly emotional, step away and relax to allow yourself to calm down.
  3. Show responsibility: Get your player(s) to practice and games on time. Push them to become responsible and pack their own gear, eat correctly and drink lots of water. We ask for players to avoid sleepovers or parties the night before games.
  4. Role Model: Always focus on the positive with your player and be there to help communicate, volunteer and support the club
  5. No coaching: Having parents and family members at games is always a joy for players but nothing is worse than being yelled at or told multiple things by different people during the game. We ask you to come to the game to enjoy watching your player do something they love and encourage them to do their best. This also includes treating the opposing team players with respect.
  6. 24 HOUR RULE: Never approach a Coach after a game, “24-Hour Rule” is required before contacting a coach to discuss an issue. Allow all emotions to be settled which will allow for a much better conversation. We also ask to allow your player to speak with the Coach before a parent approach.
  7. Focus on development: Focus on development of the player and not the wins and losses. It’s easy to become wrapped up in the scoreboard but we’re focused on player development and sometimes adversity is part of growth. Encourage your player during both outcomes and focus on what they can learn from all situations.
  8. Follow club, team and league rules: Different ages will have different requirements of team travel, tournaments, leagues. Make sure you know the rules your Coach sets forth and follow them. Failure to respect runs could be grounds for suspension of the player and even parent/guardian.


Coach Responsibilities:

As a MRFC coach, I adhere to the following: 

  1. I will always place the safety and welfare of players over any competitive factor or the value of winning.
  2. Will impress upon players that they must abide by the written laws of the game , show sponsorship and implement the MRFC values in their conduct and behavior. 
  3. Coaches will set a good example while representing MRFC. This extends to interactions with coaches, staff, players, parents and referees.
  4. Coaches will be on time, and provide age relevant instruction that is supportive to player development and player enjoyment.
  5. Coaches will not use any tobacco, alcohol or drugs while representing MRFC.
  6. I will stay informed of any developments, policies and compliance regarding youth soccer coaching and general child development.
  7. Coaches will check my equipment and playing facilities to ensure that they meet safety standards and are appropriate for the age and ability of my players.
  8. Coaches will follow the advice of a physician when determining when an injured child is ready to play again.
  9. Will communicate to players and parents regularly regarding club game model, team scheduled events, feedback  and any conflict resolution.
