US LACROSSE CODE OF ETHICS


The US Lacrosse Code of Ethics promotes sportsmanship and character by teaching, advocating, modeling and enforcing ethical principles, while preserving the integrity of the game.


Below is a brief overview of the code:


RESPECT: individuals should value the opinions, views and roles of others who work to further the mission of the organization. All should safeguard the dignity, privacy and freedom of individuals regardless of their race, color, creed, socio-economic status, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or nationality.


FAIRNESS: making decisions without favoritism or prejudice. Anything that creates an unfair advantage violates the spirit, as well as the integrity, of the sport of lacrosse.


TEAMWORK: defined as a cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of individuals who work collectively in the interest of a common goal. All members of US Lacrosse should adopt and promote the philosophy that greater success can be achieved when individuals sacrifice their desire for personal accomplishment in favor of the benefits of their team.


COMMUNICATION: US Lacrosse members should communicate with clarity, honesty, timeliness, and openness. Clear, honest, timely communication allows collaboration and cooperation to occur, building a stronger game and community for sport.


CONFLICT OF INTEREST: present in any instance in which the actions of an individual could result in actual or perceived personal gain or advantage, and/or have an adverse effect on the interests, mission or integrity of US Lacrosse. Individuals who represent and serve US Lacrosse, at all levels, have a duty to disclose any financial interest or personal obligation that may, actually or perceptually, affect the independence of their judgment.


LEGALITY: all members of US Lacrosse must comply with all applicable laws. US Lacrosse reserves the right to review violations of the law, which may result in revocation of organizational and/or member status.
