The LUSC mission is to develop lifelong soccer players among Lexington youth. This includes insuring the safety and health of everyone involved: players, coaches, referees, and spectators. Members of the LUSC community are expected to follow these Codes of Conduct and to adhere to our Zero Tolerance Policy.
Codes of Conduct
Zero Tolerance Policy
All individuals responsible for a team and all spectators shall support the referee. Failure to do so will undermine the referee’s authority and has the potential of creating a hostile environment for the players, the referee, and all the other participants and spectators.
- No one, except the players, is to speak to the referee during or after the game. Exceptions: Coaches may ask questions before the game, call for substitutions and point out emergencies during the game, or respond to the referee if addressed.
- Absolutely no disputing calls, during or after the game, no remarks to the referee to watch certain players or attend to rough play. NO YELLING at the referee, EVER, and no criticism, sarcasm, harassment, intimidation, or feedback of any kind during or after the game.
- Violators may be ejected and are subject to disciplinary action by the BAYS Sportsmanship Review Committee.
- If Coaches would like to provide feedback to or about the referee, AFTER the game, log into the BAYS site and a dropdown under MyBAYS should have a Game Feedback tab with a form that goes directly to the home Ref Assignors and Club President.
- If spectators have questions regarding particular calls, rules, or a referee, or wish to give feedback regarding a referee, please contact the LUSC Referee Coordinator listed on the Directory page.
Coaches should also refer to our BAYS Zero Tolerance and Player Safety page for more information.
