The only team we had problems with all weekend were also the affiliate from a small pacific island. It was also on Monday, where tensions do seem to run higher. The coaches and parents rode the ref the entire game and were incredibly rude and obnoxious, including yelling at and trying to intimidate the girls on the other team. The parents multiple times asked our parents to go meet them in the parking lot to "settle things." It was pretty bad. They did give all the glory to God at the medal ceremony, but my hunch is that God wasn't entirely pleased with being associated with their behavior. From my experience with their older teams, that behavior is typical with that particular club.Now that is unusual. I have NEVER had any problems with coaches, spectators or players from Hawaii. They have always been polite and respectful of the referees. Or was that new Pacific Island Surf affiliate, Surf Guam?
Other than that one team, I thought the parents and coaches we played all weekend were class acts.
