Bullying is the use of coercion to obtain control over another person or to be habitually cruel to another person.
Bullying involves an intentional, persistent or repeated pattern of committing or willfully tolerating physical and non-physical behaviors that are intended to cause fear, humiliation or physical harm in an attempt to socially exclude, diminish or isolate another person.  Bullying can occur through written, verbal or electronically transmitted expression or by means of a physical act or gesture.  Bullying behavior is prohibited in any manner in connection with any USAV/AZ Region sanctioned activity or event.
