Proper Conduct Policy
We have a very high standard of conduct at the Sooner Classic. The fact that you have been accepted to attend the Sooner Classic Championships says that “we feel you are a quality person, who will maintain a team that will be a role model for quality teams everywhere. That your conduct on the field, in the hotels and around the City of Tulsa will ensure that your team will be welcomed back to the Sooner Classic for many years to come”.
We must clearly define what we are looking for as Proper Conduct.
We will not tolerate intimidation of any form, either on the field or off. Trash talking or similar actions connected with your team will lead to penalties. Game officials are instructed to remove players from the game for 2 plays on a FIRST TIME OFFENSE for any form of physical or verbal intimidation and a 15 yard penalty will be marked off. Upon a SECOND TIME OFFENSE the player will be ejected from the game....NO DEBATE.....NO APPEALS.....FINAL.
You as Head Coach must also control your parents, they must know their actions in the stands will have an effect on their football team. If there is any single incident involving the parents/fans of your team, the Sooner Classic Marshall has the authority to stop the play of the game and your team will forfeit the game. This could cause not only the loss of a championship, but also future trips to the Sooner Classic.
You as Head Coach must also conduct yourself on and off the field. If you have a problem with a game official, conduct yourself properly you wouldn’t want your team to finish the tournament without you.
NOTE: The Head Coach or the Head Assistant Coach must be present at the weigh-in. Please have your players line up in the same order as the roster has been prepared in (oldest to youngest).
