TVYFL would like to send a reminder about the proper behavior we as fans must adhere to toward an Associations Field Greeters, Stadium Rules, and the treatment of ALL Officials. Most of you that come out to watch your son or daughters team are doing everything right. By that I mean, you are where you are supposed to be and you are cheering in a positive and respectful manner. You are setting the example we hope our kids will follow. Unfortunately each year TVYFL receives reports that not all fans have been adhering to the sites field rules, and have engaged into verbal/physical abuse toward field greeters, and officials during games. TVYFL has a ZERO TOLERANCE! policy for inappropriate behavior toward Field Greeters, Officials, or TVYFL Executive Board Members.
Please respect the rules of each Association Sites from the Field Greeters. As TVYFL By-Laws stipulates Title 7 Section 4-B:
The bench area is reserved for players, coaches and authorized team personnel only. Sidelines are specifically for medical personnel and chain crews only. At no time should parents and/or spectators be allowed to stand directly in the area designated for the above.
If an Association has a roped off area, you must abide by this, and if asked to move by a field greeter, please do so respectfully without any verbal confrontation. And importantly, please DO NOT BRING ANY PETS inside the stadium (Dogs, cats, birds, etc.). Unless it is a service dog. As we all like to say, we all have rules in our homes, and there is an expectation that any visitor in our home follows our rules. Many Associations rent these fields and are subject to conditions they must adhere to in being able to use them, let’s not put the Associations in a position to lose home games or fined because of our actions.
On the subject of verbal confrontations:
The only people who shall speak to the officials pertaining to the officiating, before, during or after a game directly shall be the Head Coach, Association Board Members, TVYFL Executive Board, or Field Greeters. Please do not go to them directly to vent out one’s frustrations, because there can be consequences, not just for yourself, but the team, and Association.
Even if it is done in a calm tone, it can easily be perceived as something different, and it will always be the word of the officials first. Most of these officials are High School kids, and already have a tough job getting yelled at by the coaches during a game, they should not have to worry about being intimated by fans during half-time, or after a game. TVYFL has sent a memorandum about coaches behaviors toward officials. PFOA’s have threatened, and some have refused to do games because of the verbal abuse from coaches, and parents. Associations are finding it harder to get youth officials to do their games as well. Remember, no officials, no games.
The issue of bad officiating will always be subjective, and calls will get missed, and unfortunately may cause an injury to a child. You as fans must trust your head coach to do what is right in situation that involves the safety of football for your child, which I know is hard to do. There is a chain of command one must follow when one feels the officials are not making the right calls, or allowing unsportsmanlike behavior in the game, which is allowing your head coach to do their job.
Division Co-Presidents shall have the full power and authority to suspend, fine or provide whatever sanction they deem appropriate upon any officer, player, parent, guardian or coach within the following guidelines for each violation.
Failure to abide by TVYFL’s rules and by-laws, the parent will be subject to removal from the field, suspension, and possible removal from the league from TVYFL for you and your child for the following season.
TVYFL knows the majority conducts themselves appropriately as we do have the best fans, parents, which create much envy amongst other youth sports (not just football) leagues. We will always conduct ourselves with respectable pride. We cheer for our team, and clap for our opponents.
