environment through appropriate conduct both on and off the field. All competitive male players are
required to wear protective cups in all practices and games.

In the event of any disagreement, dispute or dissatisfaction regarding any aspect of the operation of the
Gorillas Baseball, any of its teams, player participation, coaching instruction, etc., the parents agree to
