SILENT week June 3-6
Submitted By Cara Croll on Thursday, May 30, 2019
To Zone 8 Members, Zone 8 Executive members have been discussing for the last couple of years the issues surrounding behavior of fans in our game. Just like all minor sports we are seeing an increase of inappropriate behavior in the stands and have discussed extensively what impact this behavior has on referees, players and volunteer coaches. 

We in Zone 8 are very aware that most fans in the stands do conduct positive behavior but with the increase of instances that have come to the Zones attention, we in Zone 8 felt we needed to show that inappropriate behavior in the stands has a very negative impact on our game. Lacrosse is declining in player registration, referee numbers have decreased substantially which is affecting the development of the referee program, Associations are struggling to recruit coaches and have seen some teams fold due to no coaching staff. What this means is that all fans attending a game the week of June 3-7 are asked to not make any verbal comments during game play.

We do want to see you cheer on your players by clapping only and for fans to use their imaginations and display signs to cheer on your team. Thank you for your cooperation, Steve Kelly Zone 8 Director
