Participants or their parents shall notify the coach immediately if approached by anyone for the purpose of recruitment, guest playing, training, scrimmages, or tryouts with any other soccer club or organization outside of the IYSA defined open period. Spectators at games or practices must follow the guidelines of good sportsmanship by practicing the following:

 

1.     All comments should be positive.

2.     Spectators should not address the officials during the game.

3.     Profanity or drunkenness will not be tolerated.

 

Any player, spectator, parent, or guardian who does not follow PSC guidelines on Code of Conduct, upon verbal or written notification to the PSC board, will be subject to discipline in the following manner:

 

A.    First offense -
a.    Verbal warning by the coach or PSC Board President at the discretion of the President.

after two years.

All infractions are to be submitted to the Panther Soccer Club Board President or Vice President within one week of the incident. At that time, the Board will review the infraction and determine any and all consequences. Depending on the severity of the infraction, the Board reserves the right to skip levels within the disciplinary guidelines to ensure appropriate discipline is given for the infraction.

 

The PSC will not be held responsible for any league fines incurred as the result of disciplinary action or red card given to a coach, player, parent, or guardian. The carded individual must pay all league fines to PSC prior to the coach/player reinstatement. If a coach receives a red card due to parent/guardian conduct, the parent/guardian will pay the fine. The parent/guardian in question will not be allowed on the sideline for subsequent games or practices until the fine is paid. The PSC will abide by all disciplinary action deemed appropriate by the involved league without exception.
