The Public Conduct on County Property Policy.
It is important to keep in mind that this policy is in place primarily to “provide a comfortable, respectful and safe environment”. What one person may think is acceptable may not be what someone else thinks is acceptable. It may be worth a meeting by the coaches to remind the parents of the policy and the repercussions. An example is that a second offense of the policy can mean a minimum one month suspension. It’s a fine line that some people walk, and based on interpretation, can have serious consequences.
If we can review this and make everyone aware, maybe it will help.
If we do get to a situation that requires involvement, again, there is a fine line. Hopefully by asking someone to settle down and remind them of the policy is enough, but there are times that individuals may not feel comfortable doing so. The arena staff can be approached to help with the situation and if necessary, police will be called. Again, the policy is written to take a firm approach with those who choose to cross that line for the benefit of all.
