Athletes not acting in a manner believed to be appropriate by EPFA might be disciplined and potentially suspended from the program for the remainder of the season.
  2. We expect our parents to conduct themselves in a courteous, polite manner to athletes and non-athletes at all times, at any location. Parents or family members not acting in a manner believed to be appropriate by EPFA might be disciplined or potentially suspended from the program for the remainder of the season.
  3. Parents are expected to manage their child’s behavior if such behavior is in question. After 1 warning, the parent will be asked to observe and potentially remove the child, if the EPFA staff hasn’t already done so. Any behaviors that are harmful to other players, coaches, non-athletes or staff will not be tolerated. If the behavior does not improve, the child may potentially be suspended from the program.

A meeting can be scheduled with the appropriate parties as necessary.  Parents are encouraged to contact the grade commissioner to schedule a meeting.
  7. Parents are not allowed to communicate with their child during practice unless there is a safety concern.
