Suspensions ensue after a little league football game
SALT LAKE CITY — After a Ute Conference youth football game got out of control, parents and coaches have been suspended.
A brawl broke out on the field in Herriman on Saturday which resulted in the suspension of four coaches, two parents and two players.
Although the Ute Conference said in their press statements they can’t give detail on situations involving minors, there was a physical altercation caused by parents rushing onto the field.
The conference said they are frustrated with the actions of those who engaged in the brawl as it took away from what it was about, the kids’ experience.
Consequently, the conference is having coaches involved referee four games, hand in a written notice of appeal and go through anger management training.
The suspended parents will also have to referee four games in the next three weeks, if not their sons will not be able to play for the rest of the season and be suspended from the team.
As far as prevention goes, the conference is making adjustments to the field. Moving the rope back 15 to 20 yards off the sidelines to give parents a larger distance to travel if they decide to cross the rope and behave badly.
