Rules of Courtesy and Sportsmanship:
It's worth reminding folks, please respect your opponents (both players and coaches), keep the Zero tolerance policy in the back of your mind when dealing with difficult situations, respect the referees and remember our staff are all volunteers. And most importantly, Enjoy yourselves!
Zero tolerance policy:
- The coaches will coach, lead by example and only communicate with their players
- The spectators will lead by example and cheer for their own team. Spectators may not chant or use noisemakers.
- They will not engage players from the opposing team, or spectators from the opposing team under any circumstances. Spectators will not engage the officials under any circumstances.
- The players will play and communicate with only their team, not opposing players, spectators or coaches
- The referees will officiate.
- Instructions will be clear to the officiating crew and State representatives that a zero tolerance policy is in effect. Anyone not meeting the expectations above will be asked to leave the facility immediately (out of sight and sound).
Notable items to be aware of are:
· Poor weather guidance - Referees call the game if thunder or lightning is observed. Everyone goes to Car, The Tournament committee will contact the coaches via email on any updates to return to the field. See the website for more detailed guidance.
· No Patch Tournament (Feedback is It's getting too costly for clubs)
· Timing of 1st and 2nd place awards delivery is no sooner than 1 hour after final game in bracket
Take care and we'll see you Saturday!
