Spring Grove link:

Excerpt: “Because the rules are for both team members and coaches/advisors, board members Emily Sindlinger and Michael Brookhart took exception last month to aspects of subtle hazing that would prevent a coach from directing freshman or new players on a team to be responsible for carrying equipment, water bottles, or other items to and from the practice fields.”
