Zero Tolerance Youth Player/Referee Abuse Policy


Norwin Soccer Club, Inc.

Zero Tolerance Youth Player/Referee Abuse Policy

Purpose of the Policy


1. Youth development is the central focus of the NSC program. This includes development of youth whether they are soccer players or soccer referees. Only "Positive, Instructive, and Encouraging" comments are allowed to be directed at youth players or youth referees. The purpose of this policy is to make clear that verbal abuse or negative criticism of youth referees is as unacceptable as verbal abuse or negative criticism of youth players and to adopt basic standard sanctions for improper conduct.

2. This policy is not intended to imply that youth referees are always "right" and the adult spectator or coach is always "wrong". Just as youth players will make mistakes during play, youth referees will make mistakes in officiating, particularly in the younger divisions where they are learning how to referee. In addition, sometimes youth referees are "in over their head" because of a particularly challenging game, an assignment beyond their experience or comfort level, etc.

 3.This policy is not meant to imply that criticism/abuse of adult referees is permitted.  However, in this case the adult referee is expected to handle such behavior at the field and report such incidents to the Referee Coordinator or other Board Member for appropriate action   

Policy on Youth Referee Abuse



1.) It is never acceptable to abuse or criticize youth referees, verbally or otherwise, in any situation. NSC will not tolerate any verbal or other abuse or criticism of a youth referee by any coach or spectator.

2.) A Coach or spectator may only communicate in a positive way with a youth referee.
The coach is responsible for ensuring all spectators associated with his/her team follow these guidelines relating to communication with a youth referee. A coach/ spectator may not express any disagreement or dissatisfaction with the officiating to the youth referee.  A coach/spectator may not, before, during or after a game, discuss with a youth referee their critique of the referee's performance, other than to thank and compliment the referee.

3.) Any Board Member or Certified adult referee present at the game shall, if necessary, intervene if any coach, spectator, or other adult is criticizing or abusing a youth referee, verbally or otherwise and may take immediate appropriate action.  This may include directing the offender to leave the site, and/or suspending or terminating the game.

4.) Any NSC volunteer (any coaches, Board Member, other referees, Age Group Coordinators, etc.) observing behavior not following these guidelines shall report the incident to the Referee Coordinator or Norwin Soccer Board as soon as possible after the incident so that an appropriate review can take place.

5.)There are appropriate avenues for coaches or spectators to share concerns about the quality of officiating.  The Referee Coordinator welcomes constructive comments about referees. However, any criticism or critique of a youth referee's performance may only be communicated to the youth by the Referee Coordinator.

 

Policy for Punishment

 

1.) The First Offense by a Parent or Fan will result in a warning given by the Coach.

2.) The Second Offense by a Parent, Fan or Coach will result in removal from the soccer fields and a report will be sent to the Executive Committee of the Norwin Soccer Club for review of severity of incident and any further penalty considerations.

3. Any subsequent Offenses will result in removal from the soccer fields and a report will be sent to the Executive Committee of the Norwin Soccer Club for review of severity of incident and any further penalty considerations.

Penalties may be, but are not limited to, banishment from fields for the next game, week, season, year or even permanently depending on severity of the offense.

IF A PERSON REFUSES TO LEAVE THE SOCCER FIELD OR COMPLEX WHEN ASKED, THE LOCAL POLICE WILL BE NOTIFIED FOR ENFORCEMENT.
