  • We ask that players are considerate of all players and their varying level of experience and skill—even that of their opponents. 

  • We all have to work on Monday! Aggressive play, even that which is within the rules of soccer, is not part of this league’s design. Those practices are conducive to injury. 

  • We ask all players to practice good sportsmanship. If a foul is committed or a physical play takes place, make sure the offense is reconciled before continuing play
