Parent Code of Conduct

The Owen J Roberts Mountain Biking Team's objective is to grow the sport of Mountain Biking and maintain a quality experience for all student athletes, while improving their skills and competing against teams throughout Pennsylvania. We are strongly committed to the five core values of NICA & PICL:
Inclusivity, Equality, Strong Body, Strong Mind, Strong Character

A positive youth sport experience depends on the demonstration of good sportsmanship of all those involved: parents, riders, coaches, league officials, and the other teams. Our coaches have committed to a code of conduct, as have our student athletes. We ask all parents and their guests to also conduct themselves in a positive fashion, following this OJR MTB Parent Code of Conduct. Failure to abide by these rules may be cause for removal from races and/or practices.


  • Be positive role models and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and demonstrating positive support for all riders, coaches, officials and spectators at every race, practice, or team event.
  • Not encourage any unsportsmanlike conduct such as booing, taunting, or using profane language or gestures.
  • Try to ensure my child treats other riders, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, gender or ability.
  • Promote the emotional and physical well-being of the student athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.
  • Emphasize practice and skill development, and how they benefit my child, by ensuring he/she arrives and is retrieved in a timely fashion at all scheduled practices and races.
  • Inform the Head Coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child and/or the safety of others.
  • Teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts in a sportsmanlike manner.
  • Teach my child to win with grace and lose with dignity, and that doing one's best is most important.
