Akron Sports Zero Tolerance Policy (modified November 2013)

The goal of Akron Sports is to provide a positive skill building experience for all participants at a reasonable cost to parents. With this in mind, it has become necessary to institute a policy by which unsportsmanlike behavior is discouraged and addressed immediately during practices and games. This policy is enforced for all participants in any Akron Sports activity including officials, visiting players, coaches, and spectators.

Players:
A player will be removed for the duration of a game/practice whenever he/she:

  1. Openly disputes or argues any decision by an official.
  2. Uses obscene or vulgar language at any time.
  3. Physically, verbally, or visually demonstrates any sign of dissatisfaction towards another player, spectator or an official’s decision.

Coaches:
A coach will be removed from the game at a official’s discretions (w/ assistant taking over coaching duties), whenever he/she:

  1. Continually disputes or argues any decision by an official.
  2. Uses obscene or vulgar language at any time.
  3. Physically, verbally, or visually demonstrates any sign of dissatisfaction towards another player, spectator or an official’s decision.

Parents/Spectators:
Officials will alert coaches to intervene when a spectator or parent from their team becomes disruptive to players, officials, or other spectators. The offending spectator will receive one warning. If the behavior persists, they will be asked to leave the game. Once asked to leave, play will not resume until the person has removed him/herself completely from the field and surrounding areas. If person hasn’t left within 10 minutes, the game will be forfeited.

Again, offending behavior is defined as:

  1. Use of obscene or vulgar language to anyone at any time
  2. Taunting of players, coaches, officials or other spectators by means of baiting or ridiculing them, physical violence or threat of physical violence.
  3. Throwing or kicking of any object from the stands towards players, coaches, or officials.

Officials:
Officials shall conduct themselves in an impartial and sportsmanlike manner at all times. The actions of an official must be above reproach. Actions such as “baiting” or inciting players, coaches, or spectators is strictly prohibited.

Any violation of above policy listed or issues beyond scope of those addressed here, will be referred to the board for further action.

Sincerely,
Justin Klodzinski
President
Akron Sports Inc.
