Prior to participating in an Orange County Department of Environment, Agriculture, Parks and Recreation youth athletics league, at least one parent or guardian per player must attend a mandatory Parent Meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to review the Department's stated goal of encouraging good sportsmanship and social interaction through active participation. In addition to learning how to support their child(ren)'s athletic endeavors, parents will review the Department's policies regarding behavior and decorum at League-sponsored programs and events. Must be attended once per year.
