Infractions of the Code of Conduct may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Unsportsmanlike conduct
  • Offensive or negative language
  • Disrespectful behavior
  • Fighting or deliberate roughness
  • Repeated delay of game or practice
  • Not shaking hands after a game

Parents will generally be given a verbal warning when an infraction is observed.  If the misbehavior continues, they will be asked to leave the game or practice site.  If a parent is instructed to leave a site by a coach, official, or another league staff, they must do so.  Before returning to future practices and games, the parent must discuss the incident with League Management.

If a player receives two five-minute misconduct penalties/red cards/technical fouls during the season, he/she must serve a one game suspension.  The player must be present at the game to serve the suspension.  If two misconduct penalties/red cards/technical fouls are received in one game, the player will be taken out of the game and must serve an additional one game suspension.  Multiple misconduct warning at practice may also result in the suspension of a game.

When a player has received their third misconduct penalty/red card/technical foul of the season, they will be ejected from the league.  No refunds will be given to players ejected due to poor behavior.
