All individuals responsible for a team and all spectators shall support the referee. Failure to do so will undermine the referee's authority and has the potential of creating a hostile environment for the players, the referee, and all the other participants and spectators. Consequently, CYS has adopted and modified the following rule:
1. No one, except the players, is to speak to the referee during or after
the game. Exceptions: Coaches may ask questions before the game, call for substitutions and point out emergencies during the game, or respond to
the referee if addressed.
2. Absolutely no disputing calls, during or after the game, no remarks to
the referee to watch certain players or attend to rough play. NO YELLING
at the referee, EVER, and no criticism, sarcasm, harassment, intimidation,
or feedback of any kind during or after the game.
3. Violators at BAYS games may be ejected and are subject to disciplinary action by the BAYS Sportsmanship Review Committee. CYS will investigate and respond to incidents at In-Town games.
4. If coaches or spectators have questions regarding particular calls,
rules, or a referee, or wish to give feedback regarding a referee, please
contact the town soccer club referee's coordinator for the game in question, or contact the BAYS Referees Representative at www.bays.org.
