Zero Tolerence Policy-Sportmanship is Our Goal



Zero Tolerence Policy-Sportmanship is Our Goal

The Upper Valley Recreation Association (UVRA) has agreed that there will be a zero tolerance for fan misbehavior at all sporting events. This includes but is not limited to: booing, shouting at officials, or arguing any call. Expressing any negative behavior or comments, threats or obscene gestures to players, coaches or officials is also unacceptable. Cheering in a positive fashion, for both sides, is highly encouraged. Ours is a recreational league with fun as the primary emphasis. Many officials and coaches are volunteers and we should all appreciate their efforts and support them, setting a good example for the children. Any spectator who does not behave appropriately will be asked to leave, according to the following steps: 1. Official(s) will identify the violators to coaches, or vice versa. 2. Official'(s) will confer with both coaches one of whom will then approach the spectator and may give a warning, or ask them to leave. 3. If the spectator is not recognized by either coach, the home team coach will speak to him/her. If the decision is made for the spectator to leave, play will not resume until he/she has left the facility. If he/she refuses to leave, his/her team will forfeit, and the game will be over. Please help us foster good sportsmanship and encourage positive experiences for our youth.
