Amendment Passed Encouraging Healthy AYSO Environment
An amendment to AYSO's National Rules & Regulations with the goal of presenting a healthy and safe environment for team members was passed by the delegates at this weekend's National Annual General Meeting (NAGM) in Seattle, Wash.
This amendment is now a rule that requires any volunteer, spectator, team member and other participant to do these five things:
a. Conduct himself/herself in a manner becoming a member of AYSO and consistent with the AYSO philosophies and the highest standards of conduct.
b. Comply with and promote compliance with the Bylaws, Rules & Regulations and policies, including those related to registration, certification and training.
c. Encourage clean competition and good sportsmanship.
d. Prohibit and abstain from making negative comments and complaints about officiating.
e. Present a healthy and safe athletic environment for team members, including but not limited to, by not consuming alcoholic beverages or smoking or simulating the use of tobacco products during practices or games in the immediate vicinity of the soccer fields.
