Softball Manitoba Zero Tolerance Policy Regarding Abuse of Officials


ZERO TOLERANCE 

There will be zero tolerance for abuse of Manitoba Softball Association Officials during softball games in the Province of Manitoba.

PROVINCIALS

The Softball Manitoba delegate and Umpire-in-Chief have the authority to immediately suspend a coach, athlete or fan for a minimum of one game. The suspension will be reviewed immediately by the Protest Committee.

IMMEDIATE EJECTION AND ONE GAME SUSPENSION (LEAGUE PLAY)

Immediate action to be taken by the Umpire will be to eject the offending player/coach/team official from the game who will also be suspended for the following game. The offender shall be dealt with by the Umpire-in-Chief of the League and the League President.

VERBAL REPORTING 

The Umpire must verbally report all instances of ejection, including abuse of an official immediately following the game to the League Umpire-in-Chief. The League Umpire-in-Chief will then inform the League President of the incident.

WRITTEN FOLLOW-UP 

A written report within 72 hours must follow verbal contact. The written report is sent to the Umpire-in-Chief of the League and copied to the League President, Zone Umpire-in-Chief and Provincial Umpire-in-Chief (or designate).

RESULT OF ACTIONS 

The League Umpire-in-Chief will discuss the course of action required with the Umpire and League President to which the offender belongs. The Zone UIC and Provincial UIC will receive copies of the outcome.  Repeat offenders will face longer suspensions.
