Tri-Valley Athletics, Inc. maintains a “Zero Tolerance Policy.” To ensure the safety of our youth, the Tri-Valley Athletics organization will enforce a zero tolerance policy towards behavior not suitable for team athletics. Athletes will be expelled immediately for any drug use or underage alcohol consumption.


While coaches will teach and supervise activities, athletes are responsible for safe and appropriate behavior.  It is expected that athletes will come to practice with a willingness to learn and a positive attitude.  Volunteer coaches are there to instruct, not baby sit.  If there is a problem, the athlete will be asked to sit out the remainder of practice or competition for first offenses. Second offenses will result in being sent home and a written warning will be issued. At that time the athlete will be put on probation for a period of three months. Third offenses will result in expulsion from the club.

Coaches have the authority to expel any athlete for inappropriate behavior (i.e. fighting, poor sportsmanship, drug, alcohol use, etc.) on the first offense.
