CODE OF CONDUCT
Youth sports provide a great opportunity to teach our boys the right way to act. All coaches and parents in the Montclair lacrosse program are expected to serve as role models for our athletes. Parents who have a complaint--for example maybe feel their son is not receiving a fair amount of playing time--are encouraged to speak with the coach at an appropriate time in a calm manner. Coaches should never be yelled at. We encourage all parents either to email your coach or speak to them before or after a practice. Referees should never be yelled at, no matter how miserable we might think they are.
The Code of Conduct is a condition of membership for all players, parents, and coaches. All members who join the Montclair Lacrosse program agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and to be subject to the consequences of violating the code. All enforcement decisions made by the directors of the Montclair Lacrosse program are final and not subject to review. No refunds will be granted to those players dismissed from the Club for violating the Code of Conduct.
