Parents will not be allowed to approach any game officials at any time during or after the match. This includes the volunteer AR. If there are concerns and or queries, parents can approach team officials to approach the officials or use the proper channels through their clubs representatives to discuss the game's officials. If parents are found approaching game officials (referees) during or after the game, a warning will be sent to both the club and the coaches. A second warning will result in either a suspension for the coach and or a fine to the club.
