While serving as a Bloomfield Raiders Football Coach...




  1. I will behave in a manner that demonstrates that I recognize and support the fact that this is a community-based youth sports organization for the benefit of all the players and their families.  My primary goal is to help the players have fun while teaching them good sportsmanship, teamwork and the game of football.
  2. I fully understand that my "win/loss" record as a BRYF Coach is not what is important.
  3. I will support the efforts of all players equally.
  4. I will support and abide by all the rules, including any playing time requirements, established by the Connecticut Youth Football League and the Raiders Board of Directors.
  5. I will counsel and appropriately discipline players for unsportsmanlike conduct including "trash talking" and taunting.

Anyone who fails to behave in accordance with the Code of Conduct while attending, coaching, officiating, or participating in a youth sports event will be subject to disciplinary action, including but not limited to the following in any order or combination, at the sole discretion of the Bloomfield Raiders Board of Directors:
