The US Lacrosse Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concepts have been designed to be preventative tools at youth games. Sideline Managers help to maintain a positive environment and issue the Sportsmanship Card as a warning to an individual coach, athlete, fan, or group of fans.
Most often, the Sportsmanship Card Program will correct the unacceptable, unsportsmanlike behavior that threatens to ruin the game, but is also available to support the unfortunate circumstance of game termination as a consequence of an initial incident of or continued unsportsmanlike behavior.
The Sportsmanship Card is a resource for men's and women's program administrators and officials working youth games, and designed to work in conjunction with and to help clarify the rules. When used in conjunction with the rules, the Sportsmanship Card procedures serve as an effective deterrent to abusive behaviors.
