Letter from GELC President
As the season comes to an end and playoffs are quickly approaching, I am writing this letter to remind everybody of the expectations for behavior while spectating minor lacrosse in Edmonton. There will be zero tolerance for inappropriate actions, vocabulary or unruly fans.
I will also remind all that the head coach is responsible for the conduct of his fans and it is the role of the spectator liaison to keep their teams fans in check.
Behavior that is a detriment to the game include, but not limited to;
• Any use of profanity
• Any attempts to intimidate officials through shouting, banging on glass/boards or whistling
• Any attempts to intimidate opposing team players, bench staff or fans through taunting, shouting or excessive celebration
For your reference, the code of conduct is listed below;
10.01.01 CODE OF CONDUCT
