If you decide to begin coaching children at a Lodi game without going through proper background checks, you could be arrested, under an ordinance approved Wednesday by the City Council.

All volunteer coaches must be fingerprinted, a way to perform background checks, but every once in a while parents or spectators try to bypass that process.

    If a parent/coach doesn't want to be fingerprinted, it's a red flag.Whether it's effective or not, that's another welcome layer of protection for our kids.

    Ms. Bohm, There is no information in your article about other groups that use Lodi fields, such as the YMCA. Does this law apply to them as well? Does it apply to indoor events? It will be interesting to see authorities try to apply the 10 foot rule in a tiny, crowded gym like at Lodi Middle School.

    one parent used to run along the sideline screaming at his daughter. One time the ball went out of bounds, bounced off a lawn chair back into bounds. This guys daughter steps out to position for the toss back in. The guy screams at her to kick the ball to the goal as the ref (another young kid) hadn't blown the ball dead. So the ref blows his whistle. The guy goes beserk screaming the ref hadn't seen the ball go out, so had no authority to blow it dead. Hekept screaming at his daughter to kick to the goal.
