  The Rocky Hill Parks & Recreation Department’s Youth Sports Philosophy
The Youth Sports Programs offered by the Rocky Hill Parks and Recreation Department are designed to provide a positive sports experience. The primary purpose is to offer each participant the opportunity to pursue, through recreational sports, the physical and emotional benefits of the program. We strive to maintain our sport programs so that all players will have the opportunity to gain new skills, make new friends and have fun.
The emphasis is on good sportsmanship, proper conduct, and following the rules
and polices of the Parks and Recreation Department. Although competition is a natural part of sport activities, winning is not the primary goal. We not only want our participants, but also the coaches and fans to play fairly and respect others. Cheer for ones triumphs and not for their shortcomings. Win with grace and lose with dignity. Encourage others to always do their best and try their hardest. The Code of Conduct applies to all players, coaches, officials, parents and spectators.
