**CONDUCT - Please make sure you, your players, and your parents respect and treat the YMCA Staff properly as well as the other participants of the league. These leagues are for fun and the last thing we want to deal with is behavior issues. If a player, parent, or coach is a problem on more than one occasion they will be asked to not return and they won't be allowed to participate in the league. No money will be refunded.
