NSCCL Zero Tolerance
Needham Soccer Club operates a strict Zero Tolerance policy when it comes player, coach and spectator interactions with referees. Referees are to be treated with respect at all times, and allowed to go about refereeing the game, and making calls as they see fit without interference, influence or harassment from the sidelines.
It is at the referee’s discretion whether they wish to respond/speak back to players. Respectful interaction is encouraged if it helps players to understand/learn.
Above all else, players coaches and spectators must treat referees (and all participants) with respect, and adhere to the club Codes of Conduct signed during registration.
