All parents must sign a waiver and parent code of conduct when signing up their child.  Just in case you lost your copy, the code that was signed upon reads as follows:

  1. I shall not criticize the officials
  2. I shall not “Grand Stand” the coaches
  3. I will set a good example of sportsmanship for the children
  4. I will encourage all kids on my team not just my own
  5. I will address any team or player problems quietly and only with the team coach
  6. I will make an effort to attend and be on time to all team events
  7. I will support and demand a sports environment that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all related events
  8. I will refrain from using abusive or profane language
  9. I will remember the officials and coaches are in control of the game and practices and I will follow their instructions
  10. I agree that I fail to abide by code of conduct, I will be subject to discipline up to a non refundable ejection from the league

While each violation will be treated on a case by case basis, the usual process will include:

  • verbal warning from official / coach
  • verbal warning from commissioner / league officials
  • parent suspension for 1-3 weeks
  • parent / player suspension for 1-3 weeks
  • parent banned from attending team events
  • player banned from participation
  • Depending on the severity of the violation and cooperation shown by the offender, SBFFL officials and coaches may escalate to whichever step they feel is appropriate.
