FAIR LAWN ALL SPORTS -- CODE OF CONDUCT
The Fair Lawn All-Sports Board of Directors requires that a parent or guardian of each participant sign the other side of this registration form. This acknowledges that they have read both sides of this form, understand it, and agree to conform to the rules summarized below.
1. It is understood that there will be no arguing with officials at any time.
2. It is understood that profane or abusive language will not be tolerated at any time while participating in any All-Sports activity.
3. It is understood that fighting will not be tolerated at any time while participating in any All-Sports activity.
4. It is agreed that my child and I will conduct myself in a proper manner while participating in any All-Sports activity.
Violations of any of the above will lead to automatic ejection. In an attempt to ensure that our coaches, parents, and players conduct themselves with proper behavior and are able to enjoy participation in All-Sports activities, we have established the following guidelines:
a. If a player is ejected from a game, the All-Sports Sportsmanship Committee will issue a warning to the player, and the committee has the power to suspend the player from further games.
b. If a player is ejected a second time during that season, the Sportsmanship Committee will issue a warning to the player, but the committee will consider that this is the second offense and will, in all likelihood, issue a much harsher ruling depending on the specific circumstances of the ejection.
a. If a coach is ejected from a game, the Sportsmanship Committee will automatically suspend the coach for the next scheduled game and the committee may issue a harsher ruling depending on the circumstances of the ejection.
b. If a coach is ejected a second time during that season, the Sportsmanship Committee will issue at least a two-game suspension, and has the authority to issue a harsher ruling depending on the circumstances.
c. Should a coach instigate a physical situation or a fight, the Sportsmanship Committee will automatically suspend that coach for the balance of that season.
a. If parents or relatives of a player are abusive or cause a disruptive situation, we would ask our coaches to first attempt to stop this behavior. Should this behavior continue, the program chairperson will intervene. Should the problem continue unabated, the Sportsmanship Committee will correspond to the individual or individuals and advise them that they will not be permitted to attend any more contests and, if they do attend, their child or children will not be able to participate in those contests.
There will be no refunds for dismissals from any programs for sportsmanship violations. Fair Lawn All-Sports hopes that none of the penalties summarized above will have to be implemented but, rather, that our participants, coaches, and fans will enjoy their seasons and let our players play and learn under the proper guidelines and conditions.
