SPECTATOR POLICY

  • Fields will have a dotted line in which parents / spectators should sit/stand behind.  If the dotted line is not visible, spectators should remain at least 3 yds from the sideline.
  • Spectators will be asked to sit on the half of the field across from the bench of the team they are supporting.  No spectators are allowed behind the goals.
  • If a parent or spectator is dismissed from a game, tournament authorities have the right to ban the individual from the complex for the remainder of the tournament as well as sanction team and/or coach.  We understand parents / spectators are probably traveling from a distance to be here, but if they cannot be respectful while watching the game, poor behavior will not be tolerated.
  • Under NO circumstances should a parent or spectator enter the field of play.  This behavior is not acceptable.  If a parent or spectator enters the field of play, the entire team may be dismissed from the tournament and the team and/or coach may face sanctions.
