DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES

  1. Players disciplined by the coach:  While the SPBBL recognizes discipline is a key ingredient to the success of a team, no coach can prevent a player from participating in a game without prior approval from the SPPBL site coordinator or Commissioner at the game location.  Any coach who feels a player’s playing time should be restricted due to tardiness, absenteeism, behavior, or any other reason should discuss matter with the SPBBL site coordinator at the game location.
