Youth across Lafayette Parish are invited to register for fall sports at a Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) Parks and Recreation event on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Kids will have a chance to meet, talk to and get autographs from an all-star lineup of former local professional athletes.

Athletic Programs Supervisor Walter Guillory said codes of conduct for coaches will be discussed, as well as communicating to kids that when playing sports, winning isn’t everything. “We are emphasizing sports is about building character, exercising, having fun and making friends. We’ll teach them how to conduct themselves whether your team wins or loses. Along the way, they’ll learn important life skills,” Guillory said.

He went on to say conduct for coaches will also be highlighted. “Coaches should be mindful of tone of voice, language, encourage children, and spend more time with them when they need extra help.”
