Spectator Rules

Parents and spectators are to sit on the opposite side of the opposing team. In general the home team will occupy the North or West side of the field and visiting team will occupy the South or East portion of the field.
No parent, coach, spectator or player is to sit or stand behind either of the goal lines or beyond the area of the penalty area to the goal line.

  • The referee is to stop the game if a parent is out of line. The game will not restart until the incident is resolved.
  • The referee is to stop the game if a major infraction occurs and counsel the player with or without the coach - use it as a teaching moment.
  • The coach or referee can have a player who is not following good sportsmanship sit out until they are ready to participate appropriately.
  • Coaches should assist the referee at beginning of the game, by making sure athletes have dressed appropriately (shin guards on with appropriate socks, jersey tucked, no jewelry, no zippers, no toe cleats, etc.).

Remember Players play, Refs ref, Coaches coach, Fans cheer!

Please contact the Region for more information about the spectator rules.
