Gym Monitor Duties:

1. Identify and meet the other gym monitor and referees

2. Ensure all spectators be respectful of all players, coaches, officials, and other spectators

3. If spectators become unruly or voice their displeasure, politely ask them to stop. If they persist, unite with your fellow monitor and ask the spectator to leave the gym. If further assistance is required, ask the coach of the respective team to help

4. Report any incidents to the game sheet along with the Referee

Note that the gym monitor can join the other parents on the sidelines (i.e. they need not "stand apart" or stay in a specific spot during the game. They would only "need to take action" in the event one of the spectators from our team demonstrates unsportsmanlike conduct).
