San Diego State University sent the following:
Physical and aggressive play will not be tolerated and players will be removed if we feel it is flagrant or an individual player continues with this style of play. Instruct your players to stay on their feet and try to avoid bringing players to the ground. Your players will hear from the SDSU staff whenever we see these issues arise.
Please clean up the sideline when you are finished playing a game. There will be trash cans on each sideline.
We don’t provide ice or water for your coolers but we will have trainers on every field and they will have water bottles. Our trainers are not available to tape ankles, shoulders, wrists, etc. They are there to provide assistance for injuries that occur during the games.
This tournament is for coaches and players. Only your players and staff are allowed on the field/sideline. Spectators are allowed but there are some restrictions they must adhere to. Here are the rules for the spectators:
On field 600 (grass field), the spectators must stay on the east sideline behind the area marked off by the ropes. As a general rule, they can’t be anywhere on the grass including the end zones. They may also go up on the Sports Deck and watch the game from above. On field 610, spectators must stay outside the fenced field. They can watch from the bleachers or on the sidewalk behind the fence. They can also go up and watch from the Sports Deck. Again, no spectators are allowed in the fenced field area.
On field 620, the spectators must stay out of the fenced field area. They can sit behind the fence on the north sideline, the east end zone behind the fence, or the west end zone behind the fence. They can also go into Tony Gwynn Stadium and watch from the bleachers above the field.
On all fields, the only people allowed are players and coaches. No wives/girlfriends, NO KIDS, no ball boys/ball girls/water boys/water girls, no photographers, no team moms, no trainers, no doctors and most importantly, no parents. Players and coaches only. Please help us in enforcing this.
Lastly, our referees are all volunteers. Our coaches and the referees will only respond to rule infractions that are particular to our tournament. Do not argue with them regarding pass interference, holding, etc. Don’t compare the calls against you versus what has or hasn’t been called against the other team. Please advise your parents of this and if we have any issues with spectators involving abusive comments or behavior, they will be ejected from the facility.
GOOD LUCK PACK!
