Seasider Sports and Activities provides a safe environment where healthy and wholesome competition can exist. We understand that emotions can get the best of any of us at times. Our staff will issue a single warning to any participant or team who is showing signs of losing their temper or unsportsmanlike behavior. This warning may result in a 3-minute break in-game time. However, the following will not be tolerated and will result in a suspension from Seasider Sports and Activities:
- Any violation of the Honor Code or Title IX
- Foul language (Includes taunting, jeering, trash-talking, etc.)
- Complaining to Referees, Game Managers, and any other Staff.
- Threats (both verbal and non-verbal)
