19. VVB may use young people to umpire these games.  We feel it serves 2 purposes, it allows older kids who do not want to play a chance to participate, and also allows them to make a little money.  These kids are learning just like your players, so we expect tolerance from our coaches.  If you verbally abuse one of these kids, you will be subject to a penalty, which could include a permanent ban from VVB.  If you have a problem with one of them, call us immediately and we will deal with it.  Do not attempt to handle the situation yourself.
