SPORTSMANSHIP

  • It will be the responsibility of each head official and/or field director to ensure compliance with the tolerance rule is maintained
  • The head official will maintain full authority of implementing penalties or ejections associated with this rule
  • Foul language used by a coach or player will be cause for immediate ejection from the game.  Foul or abusive language used by a parent or fan will result in a 15-yard penalty against the sideline charged.  A second offense by the parent will result in ejection from the game of their child
  • Any parent stepping onto the field of play while displaying unsportsmanlike behavior will be ejected from the field area.  Play will not resume until the parent has departed or been removed
  • Fighting will not be tolerated.  Any player initiating or involved in a fight on the playing field will be ejected and will not be allowed to participate without the approval of the respective local league directors and/or the WMJFL Board
  • Any coach involved in promoting unsportsmanlike conduct amongst his players may be ejected without warning if deemed necessary by the Head Official
