Zero Tolerance Policy

It is the responsibility of each manager to handle their team’s behavior. This includes behavior of parents. Managers, coaches, parents, and/or family members may not use foul language. In addition, GVGSA will not allow any players, coaches, or umpires to be harassed. GVGSA HAS A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY THAT APPLIES TO ALL OFFENDERS. If an incident occurs during a GVGSA game, umpires or league officials will provide a single warning to the manager or offending party. If a further violation occurs, umpires have been instructed to contact the Officer of the Day (OOD). The OOD will then ask the offending party to immediately leave the premises. If the offender refuses to leave, a board member shall notify the umpire to rule the game a forfeit.
