Sideline Conduct Reminder

 

Please be mindful of Sideline Conduct.

 

Simply put, ONE COACH/REP inside the ropes and he/she is the enforcer. If asked to comply by anyone, but especially a Match Official or a Coach/Rep inside the ropes and the party either dissents, fails to comply or as has been frequently reported laughs, mocks, argues, questions the person's authority to make such a request, disregards and/or is generally contemptible at the suggestion of compliance is simply not acceptable and is considered Unsportsmanlike Conduct and/or Off-Field Misconduct. If a friendly reminder of the rules does not remedy a situation, or if it is met with resistance or contempt, the GUs encourages anyone to report such.
