Amendment II

League policy is aimed at conduct that the league said "detracts from gameday/night experience."

It includes bans on:

• Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal.

• Drunkenness and signs of alcohol impairment that result in irresponsible behavior.

• Foul or abusive language or obscene gestures.

• Interference with the progress of the game, including throwing objects onto the field.

• Failing to follow instructions of administrators/staff/personnel.

• Verbal or physical harassment of fans from the opposing team.

The game experience is critically important to the players, coaches, leagues, our clubs, parents and our spectators and it will be a major focus this and every season.  We are committed to improving the fan experience in every way we can -- from the time fans arrive to when they depart the venue.

We have also left teams the option of adding additional provisions to the code based on local circumstances. 

Be Respectful, Do The Right Thing......
