Spectator Policy/Sportsmanship

(Note: This is word-for-word same policy as West Coast nationals)

Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated. This is your warning. If you are asked to leave the event, you son or daughter may be asked to leave with you. Your team may also forfeit the game.

Do not get embarrassed; if you notice someone acting inappropriately, take out your phone, video tape him or her, and show it
to the tournament director. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. This is a family atmosphere. Please have a great
event and respect the competition, players, staff and coaches.


AAU requires that all parents and spectators maintain good sportsmanship throughout the course of the event. We promote a great youth sports atmosphere, and we encourage everyone to cheer and get loud and support their son or daughter’s team. But do not let it get out of control. As an adult, please set a good example for all the children at this great event.

AAU will not tolerate any of the following

  • Cursing by any parents or spectators
  • Yelling at game officials regarding calls
  • Yelling or arguing with fans of the opposing team
  • Any negative or derogatory comments towards opposing players

Inappropriate behavior will result in the fan being removed from the game. The fan must leave the facility entirely. Your child may be removed from the game as well.
