Code of conduct
The first occurrence when a child demonstrates behavior that is detrimental to the game or is unsportsmanlike, as determined in NYC Pick Up Sports sole discretion, will be asked to sit out for the remainder of that game. If the child displays poor behavior a second time, as determined in NYC Pick Up Sports sole discretion, the child will not be allowed back for the duration of the season. These judgments will be made at the sole discretion of the referees and game managers. In either event, there will be no refund if a child is asked not to return.
Detrimental behavior is defined to include, without limitation, the following:
(i) Bullying behavior, such as teasing, name calling or making fun of someone;
(ii) Foul Language;
(iii) Flagrant game-rule violation; and
(iv) Ignoring officials, referees, game managers or any other agent of NYC Pick Up Sports
Pickup style gameplay. The referees are there to choose format (3 v 3, 4 v 4, or 5 v 5) and help facilitate gameflow. The players will call their own fouls and if there is any disagreement, the referees will have the final decision. Games are played to a fixed amount of points.
