Poor sportsmanship includes, but is not limited to; yelling at umpires, players, coaches, board members or spectators, using inappropriate language or gestures, any actions that can be construed as a threat to another person or that, through aggressive intent or recklessness, may result in injury, and any public behavior that contributes to an atmosphere of conflict at the field or park in connection with a CGS game or event. The zero tolerance policy is in effect for players & coaches as well as parents and other spectators. The umpire is in control of the game & should be treated respectfully.
