  • The referee is to stop the game if a parent is out of line.  The game will not restart until the incident is resolved.
  • The referee is to stop the game if a major infraction occurs and counsel the player with or without the coach - use it as a teaching moment.
  • The coach or referee can have a player who is not following good sportsmanship sit out until they are ready to participate appropriately.
  • Coaches should assist the referee at beginning of game, by making sure athletes are dressed appropriately (shin guards on with appropriate socks, jersey tucked, no jewelry, no zippers, no toe cleats, etc.).

Remember Players play, Refs ref, Coaches coach, Fans cheer!
