Before a participant is allowed to begin practice or competition he/she and a parent or guardian is required to read the code of conduct and sign an agreement on the registration form for each GBSRD sponsored activity. In addition to following rules which apply to each specific sport or activity, all participants, coaches, parents, and spectators are expected to follow this code of conduct.
The following actions may result in a verbal or written warning, suspension from participation, or expulsion from the activity or program:
- Cursing or inappropriate language

All participants are expected to be on time for games in their complete uniform and required equipment.
Participants that are signed up for a GBSRD activity are expected to participate in scheduled games and practices for that activity. Conflicts with other leagues (not affiliated with the GBSRD) or outside events could result in limited playing time or removal from the league.
