Disputes And Complaints
Unfortunately, every season there are disagreements regarding rules, calls (or lack of calls), other parents and/or coaches conduct or behavior. First and foremost, don't compound the problem by becoming part of the problem. Second, you are responsible for your parents. Under no circumstances are coaches, players, or parents to question a ref's call or be confrontational with an opposing coach or parent. If you know you lost your composure, please apologize to the referee, other coach, or parent. After the game please email wenatcheesoccer@gmail.com, so we can resolve the matter.
