CYAS Code of Conduct-"Sportsmanship Contract"
1. Catholic Young Adult Sports, referred herein as CYAS, is a sports-based ministry independently serving the Archdiocese of Denver.
2. Participation in CYAS sports leagues emphasizes fun and Christian fellowship.
3. Each CYAS league encourages sportsmanship and safety.
4. CYAS leagues do not tolerate profanity, rowdiness, poor sportsmanship or dangerous play. Such behavior can warrant ejection from a
game or match
5. The CYAS liaison or commissioner has the ultimate authority to eject a player from a game. Volunteer refs should first address the
player and then the captain. If that does not work, the CYAS liaison or commissioner will be brought in to make the decision.
6. Any player or non-playing captain who is ejected from a game will be suspended for at least one following game.
7. Any player or non-playing captain who is ejected from a game a second time is subject to suspension for the remainder of the season. A
committee appointed by the CYAS board will review the violations and determine the length of the suspension, including the
possibility of it extending beyond the present CYAS season and into future CYAS seasons of all types.
8. A player or non-playing captain who has been ejected from a game can be asked to leave the premises by a referee/umpire/CYAS
representative if the behavior continues to be a distraction. Failure to leave could result in forfeiture of game. Please be advised that
spectators whom were invited by players and captains should adhere to 'good behavior" or they are subject to ejection from the premises
9. Any physical attack during or following a play will result in immediate ejection from the game, the player will be asked to leave the
premises at that time and will be subject to review by the CYAS Board for consideration of expulsion for the rest of the season or even the
total elimination of future membership.
10. No player is allowed to participate in a game or match under the influence of alcohol or any other controlled substance, exceptions may
be made for specific leagues or one-day events where it will be clearly stated in the rules or official posting from CYAS. In the event
alcohol is allowed it will not be provided by CYAS. You waive your right to hold CYAS liable for any damages due to the consumption of
alcohol and will be responsible for any liability and legal fees to CYAS from damages where you are found to be in negligence.
