Respect Referees, Minor Officials, Coaches, and Spectators

All officials play an integral part of the game. They must be regarded as honest in intentions. There is to be no prompting (verbal or otherwise) of the officials to make calls. Decisions of the officials must be accepted with good grace. Failure to do so may result in your removal from the gym. It may also result in a subsequent suspension.
