GAME FILM POLICY
The use of personal recording devices to record your athletes and teams at our events are permitted, but ask for your cooperation ensuring the safety of yourself and those around you. If utilizing an elevated recording device (this includes the use of high pods / anything over six feet in height) the device MUST we properly secured with weights and stabilizers. You must be courteous to those around you and not block viewing and if a tournament official asks for the device to be lowered at any time, full compliance is expected.

SPECTATOR POLICY

  • Fields will have a dotted line in which parents / spectators should sit/stand behind.  If the dotted line is not visible, spectators should remain at least 3 yds from the sideline.
  • Spectators will be asked to sit on the half of the field across from the bench of the team they are supporting.  No spectators are allowed behind the goals.
  • If a parent or spectator is dismissed from a game, tournament authorities have the right to ban the individual from the complex for the remainder of the tournament as well as sanction team and/or coach.  We understand parents / spectators are probably traveling from a distance to be here, but if they cannot be respectful while watching the game, poor behavior will not be tolerated.
  • Under NO circumstances should a parent or spectator enter the field of play.  This behavior is not acceptable.  If a parent or spectator enters the field of play, the entire team may be dismissed from the tournament and the team and/or coach may face sanctions.
