 MRAA Code of Conduct

 Coaches                                                                                                    

Any coach (head or assistant) who, in the sole discretion of the program supervisor, has
behaved in an unsportsmanlike manner toward an umpire, another coach, player,
parent, league official, or fan will be suspended for one game, including all practices
leading up thereto. If the incident occurs during the last game of the season, the one-
game suspension will be served during the next season.
If a second instance of unsportsmanlike conduct occurs during any future MRAA
activity, the coach will be removed from their coaching position and not allowed to
coach in MRAA again. Removal can be imposed by any elected officer of MRAA and
confirmed by a vote of a simple majority of the members of the MRAA Board of
Directors who attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board.
 

Players

Any player who, in the sole discretion of the program supervisor, has behaved in an unsportsmanlike manner toward an umpire, coach, another player, league official, or spectator will be suspended for one game, including all practices leading up thereto.  If the incident occurs during the last game of the season, the one-game suspension will be served during the next season.


If a second instance of unsportsmanlike conduct occurs during any future MRAA activity, the player will be removed from the league and will not be allowed to participate in any MRAA activity again.  Removal can be imposed by any elected officer of MRAA and confirmed by a vote of a simple majority of the members of the MRAA Board of Directors who attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board.


 

Parents/Guardians/Spectators

Any parent/guardian/spectator who, in the sole discretion of the program supervisor, has behaved in an unsportsmanlike manner toward an umpire, coach, player, parent, league official, or spectator (at either a practice or game) will be banned from all practices and games for 10 days.  If the incident occurs with less than 10 days remaining in the season, the suspension will carry over to the next season.


If a second instance of unsportsmanlike conduct occurs during any future MRAA activity, the parent/guardian/spectator will be banned from attending any practices, games, or other MRAA activity again.  Removal can be imposed by any elected officer of MRAA and confirmed by a vote of a simple majority of the members of the MRAA Board of Directors who attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board.


 

Over the Top Rule

Any coach, player, parent, guardian, or spectator who behaves in a manner that exceeds the level of simple unsportsmanlike behavior and which rises to the level of outrageous or threatening behavior through words (including but not limited to oral communications, voicemail messages, text messages, social media messages, and social media posts) and/or acts towards an umpire, coach, player, parent, league official or other spectator will be immediately and permanently banned from all MRAA activities.  The “Over the Top” penalty may be imposed by any elected officer of MRAA and confirmed by a vote of a simple majority of the members of the MRAA Board of Directors who attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board. The Board shall determine in its sole and absolute discretion, whether the offending behavior rose to a level that is outrageous or threatening.
