- At no point will parents be allowed to confront coaches without the presence of a tournament director at a designated time and location away from any scheduled game.
- The head coach will be the sole decision maker in all aspects of the game. He/she will be the only person making the lineups, making changes to the lineup and determining all game management facets.

Things for parents to keep in mind while children are playing:
- This is a game being played by children
- If they win or lose every game of this event, it will not impact what college they attend or their future income potential
- Imagine how you would feel if you saw a parent or coach from the opposing team cheering for your child when they made a great play. Then envision what kind of person you would think they are for doing that. You can be that person
- Umpires are human and make mistakes, just like players, coaches, and you. No one shouts at you in front of other people when you make a mistake, so please don’t yell at them. We do not have video replay, so, we will go with their calls.
- The only reason children want to play sports is because it is fun. Please don’t let the behavior of the adults ruin their fun.
