The CAA Code of Conduct

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

R...Referees. God has placed them in authority for your benefit and they're ALWAYS right (even when they're wrong). (Romans 13: 5-6)

E...Encourage, be a "Barnabas," not a "Jonah". Don't criticize your teammates, your opponents, or the refs...be a cheer leader. (Hebrews 10:25)

S...Stay the course. Perseverance is a Christian character trait, because it's ALWAYS too soon to quit. (Hebrews 12:1)

P...Practice. You can't grow in your faith unless you practice your faith, and you can't grow as a soccer player unless you practice. Also, if you're only "on time" for practices and games, you're late. Aim to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the official arrival time. (Matthew 7:24)

E...Excellence. Expect excellence from yourself and your teammates...set the bar high and hold each other accountable. God gave us His 'best,' His only Son, Jesus. The very least we can do is give our best too. (Philippians 4:8)

C...Courage. The early Christians were known as bold, courageous risk takers...do likewise. Take risks in the games. You'll not be criticized for trying something new, but you will be lovingly confronted if you don't try. Also, take a risk, and share your faith as opportunities arise throughout the season. (1 Corinthians 16:13)

T...Trust. Trust God, your coaches, and your teammates. (John 14:1)
