SIDELINE MANAGER AND SPORTSMANSHIP CARD/CHILL MANAGER


US Lacrosse Sideline Managers help 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 concept will correct unacceptable, unsportsmanlike behavior. It’s also available to issue game termination as a consequence of an initial incident of or continued unsportsmanlike behavior.


Since 2005, Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concept resources have been distributed to US Lacrosse chapters, coaches, program administrators, players and fans. The success of the Sideline Manager and Sportsmanship Card concepts will be as strong as the commitment of organizations and individuals that implement them.


US Lacrosse began a transition from the Sideline Manager to the adoption of a CHILL (Calm Heads Instill Life Lessons) Manager. Developed in Minnesota, the CHILL Manager is a parent responsible for monitoring and enforcing US Lacrosse’s sportsmanship directives. Learn more at USLacrosse.org
