Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct applies to players, coaches, parents, and spectators participating in or attending athletic events sponsored by Mountain Brook Athletics, except as may be expressly modified by the written rules applicable to a particular sport sponsored by Mountain Brook Athletics.
Players, coaches, parents, and spectators must at all times display a manner that exhibits a high degree of sportsmanship.
Profanity, hostile or abusive language, and threats of any kind directed to players, coaches, parents, spectators or game officials are at all times strictly prohibited. Any player, coach, parent, or spectator using profanity, or hostile, abusive or threatening language is subject to immediate expulsion by the game officials and/or the league commissioner and, in extreme circumstances, may be reported to the proper authorities. Any repeated or extreme violation of this rule will be reviewed by the board of MBA, and the board may in its discretion impose additional sanctions up to and including banning an individual from participating in or attending any future MBA sponsored event.
Any player, coach, parent, or spectator engaging in any act of violence or other physical abuse against another player, coach, parent, spectator, or game official will be immediately ejected from the premises and may be reported to the proper authorities. Any use of violence will be reviewed by the board of MBA, and the board may in its discretion impose additional sanctions up to and including banning an individual from participating in or attending any future MBA sponsored event.
Absolutely no alcoholic beverages are allowed at any event sponsored by Mountain Brook Athletics. Any person appearing to be under the influence of alcohol or any illegal substances will be requested to leave the premises immediately.
Players, coaches, parents, and spectators should refrain from criticizing game officials. Coaches are responsible for the conduct of his/her players, parents, and spectators.
Although coaches are permitted to converse with game officials to obtain clarification regarding calls, obtain answers to rules questions, and other similar purposes, they should do so in a professional and courteous manner. Coaches should refrain from arguing with, yelling at, or otherwise criticizing game officials. Any criticism of game officials should be directed to the league commissioner in a professional manner after the conclusion of the game.
Parents and spectators are strictly prohibited from entering or coming onto the field of play for the purpose of arguing with or criticizing any player, coach, or game official. Parents are permitted to come onto the field of play once play has stopped in order to attend to an injured player. Any violation of this rule will result in immediate expulsion from the premises.
Coaches must strictly adhere to all MBA rules, policies, and regulations regarding player participation. Coaches found to have intentionally violated such rules, policies, or regulations are subject to a one game suspension at the discretion of the league commissioner. Subsequent intentional violations of such rules, policies, or regulations will be grounds for the board of MBA at its discretion to impose additional sanctions up to and including prohibiting further participation in MBA by the individual as a head coach or assistant coach. It is the head coach's responsibility to know and understand the rules applicable to player participation for the sport they are coaching.
Coaches must strictly adhere to all MBA rules, policies, and regulations regarding the number and length of practices. Coaches found to have violated such rules, policies, or regulations shall have their team's next game forfeited.
Coaches should instruct players to play within the written rules of the game and within the spirit of the game at all times. Coaches should not seek unfair advantage by teaching deliberate unsportsmanlike behavior to players.
Any player or coach ejected from a game for any reason will automatically be suspended from his/her team's next game. In the event the ejection occurs during the final game played by his/her team in a particular season, the suspension will carry over to the next game in any MBA sport in which the player or coach is involved.
MBA reserves the absolute right to deny participation in its sponsored programs to any individual found to be in violation of any of the provisions of this Code of Conduct, or to impose such lesser penalties as it may determine in its sole discretion are warranted
