The "Responsibilities and Expectations of the Oly Fire Board, Coaches, Parents, and Players" was established in August 2005 by the Oly Fire Board. Oly Fire Inc. board members effective November 25, 2012 reviewed these responsibilities and expectations and approved maintaining the same guiding principles as follows.

The expectation is that each coach distributes a copy of these responsibilities and expectations to each player and parent prior to the beginning of the season.
