Michigan Jaguars Players Code of Conduct


These are primary conduct guidelines of the Michigan Jaguars. These guidelines cannot possibly cover every situation that will arise over the course of a season, and under certain situations, exceptions can be made according to the best judgment of the head coach. Please keep in mind, however, that the head coach is responsible to the entire team, player families, and the Jaguars soccer program. All decisions will be made with those obligations in mind.
The Jaguars expect all participants to maintain a high standard of conduct at all times, and will enforce the standard firmly and fairly. If and when violations occur, the violator will receive disciplinary action from the Jaguars according to its rules and policies.
