Code of Conduct

You do not have to turn these into us, but it is very important that you are familiar with them. The league can ask you to produce a signed copy at any time and they are adamant about enforcing conduct this year. They've been asked to produce one for the referees as well.

There is a version for our players (Firebirds/Pumas) in the Registration Packet called Player Handbook. This is also available on the website under Home/Documents. Here is that link:

Firebird Player Handbook

There is a version for all who participate in the Arizona Youth Lacrosse League (Firebird Families). Here is that link:

AYL Code of Conduct (There are sub-links here for Parents, Players, & Coaches)

Volunteers Needed!

Leslie is trying to get away from any direct team management duties and only focus on OTL stuff from a distance (field procurement, district, city, IRS, etc ... ). We have a few people actively involved, but could always use more!

If you can help out with administration (board positions), communication, volunteer coordination, or fundraising (corn hole event this spring) we'd sure appreciate the help! Speak up and let us know!

THANK YOU Firebird Volunteers!
