The Quinte Minor Lacrosse Association is committed to providing good spirited competition at all levels. Each player will be given the opportunity to develop his or her skills in a safe and positive environment. This will be provided through the committed cooperation of players, parents, coaches and officials.
The Quinte Minor Lacrosse Association feels that lacrosse is not only a fun and exciting sports activity but also a healthy and positive alternative for our young people’s fitness and personal development.
In keeping with this philosophy, the general aim of our association is to encourage growth in our association with the primary concern being player development. This development can be achieved by broadening our base (eg. increasing our numbers at the house league level) without jeopardizing the development of the competitive player.
The key to this grassroots movement requires commitment and leadership on the part of the executive and competitive coaches, as well as increased involvement of volunteers within our association
Zero Tolerance Abuse Policy
There will be a “Zero Tolerance Policy” of anyone responsible for physical or verbal abuse directed towards officials, coaching staff, players, and other spectators before, during or at any time after the game.
If a parent, player or spectator is disrupting the game or verbally or physically abusing any player, member of the coaching staff, official, or other spectator, the game shall be stopped and the offender ejected from the arena. If a person refuses to leave the arena, the game will be held until such time as they do. If a person continues to refuse the referee will inform the arena staff who will in turn call the police to have them charged with trespassing and escorted from the facility. The referees will include the names and address of the offender on the game sheet and they will be banned from the facility for the reminder of the lacrosse season. The referees will be informed of this policy prior to the games and asked to adhere to this policy.
Quinte Minor Lacrosse Association encourages fair play, friendly competition and the opportunity for all to enjoy the game of Lacrosse without fear of harassment or physical harm.
