Fall 2009 Send off Procedures for ACCYSL Teams

PROCEDURE FOR GETTING PLAYER/COACHES PASSES BACK AFTER RED CARDS

Summarized below is the procedure for getting player passes back if a player (or coach) gets a send-off. All competitive coaches/managers should review this carefully and print out a copy so you know what to do in the unfortunate event of a send-off.  If any of your players or coaches are unfortunate recipients of a send-off, there are a few things you will want to do to make the process a little smoother. First off, tell the kids to cool it and DON’T GET SENT OFF. It can be a real pain to get player and coach’s passes back after suspensions are served.  Coaches, if you are sent off in a CYSA sanctioned event, you will get a  MINIMUM OF A 3 MATCH SUSPENSION.  It is a minimum of 2 matches in addition to what a  player would get.  So don’t go there.

The way the process works, you may not get the pass back even after serving the suspension, and  hopefully, the pass does not get lost in the shuffle. You may not like it, and I certainly don't, but the process is slow and that's not going to change any time soon. SO DON’T HAVE ANY SEND-OFFS. If you do, you and your players will have to deal with the consequences.

If you do get someone sent-off, below is the process, which varies depending upon whether it occurs at a D4 or GSSL game, or a CYSA- or US Club soccer tournament:

 

I. For District 4 League Games (U10’s/U11's and all Division III teams)

1. Before leaving the match, make sure the referee knows where he/she is sending the pass.The passes, along with the match card, are supposed to be sent to the District 4 Discipline Chair, Roger Wildenstein.

2. Email me, David Moffat, ASAP at ddmoffat@aol.com (or current Representative to Distirct IV Competitive Playing League found at www.mysoccerleague.com). 

I will immediately let the Discipline Chair know to be looking for the pass. THIS CAN SAVE YOU A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME. UNLESS I KNOW THAT A PLAYER WAS SANCTIONED, AND WHEN AND WHERE THE GAME TOOK PLACE, THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PASS IS BEING PROCESSED.

3. The Discipline Chair will inform me of the suspension required and I will contact you to let you know the same.

4. In subsequent matches, make sure the referee indicates on the match card the suspensionis being served. Also, if I provide you with a sanction verification form, you will need to have this filled out and signed by the referee (if the form is available in time). If the form is not available at the time the sanction is served, you will need to fill in the required information, and I can sign once I've confirmed that the player or coach served the sanction.

5. US Club sanctioned tournaments do NOT count toward CYSA suspensions.

6. The player pass will be returned to me once the suspension is served.

7. You will need to pick-up the player pass from me.

 

II. For GSSL League Games (U12-U19 Division I teams)

1. Before leaving the match, make sure the referee knows where he/she is sending the pass.  The passes, along with the match card, are supposed to be sent to the GSSL Discipline Chair, Diane Scott.

Email me, David Moffat, ASAP at ddmoffat@aol.com (or current Representative to Distirct IV Competitive Playing League found at www.mysoccerleague.com).  

I will immediately let the Discipline Chair know to be looking for the pass. THIS CAN SAVE YOU A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME. UNLESS I KNOW THAT A PLAYER WAS SANCTIONED, AND WHEN AND WHERE THE GAME TOOK PLACE, THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PASS IS BEING PROCESSED.

3 The Discipline Chair will inform me of the suspension required and I will contact you to let you know the same.

4 In subsequent matches, make sure the referee indicates on the match card the suspensionis being served. In addition, have the referee sign the "orange" card. Once the "orange card" is filled out, send it to Diane Scott. IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ALSO MAIL OR GIVE ME A COPY OF THE ORANGE CARD BEFORE YOU SEND IT TO DIANE
. Unless I have a copy of the card, I won’t know to press Diane to give me a pass (which can mean you’re players might miss additional games). And if there’s later a dispute about whether the sanction was served, I can’t help you unless I have a copy of the orange card.

5 US Club sanctioned tournaments do NOT count toward CYSA suspensions.

6 The player pass will be returned to me once the suspension is served and Diane receivesthe "orange card".

7. You will need to pick-up the player pass from me.

 

III. For CYSA Sanctioned Tournaments:

1. Before leaving the tournament, make sure you know where the CYSA player passes are being sent. The passes are supposed to be sent to the District 4 Commissioner, Chris Murray. Chris will then send them to the District 4 Discipline Chair, Roger Wildenstein.

2. Email me, David Moffat, ASAP at ddmoffat@aol.com (or current Representative to Distirct IV Competitive Playing League found at www.mysoccerleague.com).  

I will immediately let the Discipline Chair know to be looking for the pass. THIS CAN SAVE YOU A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME. UNLESS I KNOW THAT A PLAYER WAS SANCTIONED, AND WHEN AND WHERE THE GAME TOOK PLACE, THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PASS IS BEING PROCESSED.

3. The Discipline Chair will inform me of the suspension required and I will contact you to let you know the same.

4. In subsequent matches, make sure the referee indicates on the match card the suspension is being served. Also, if I provide you with a sanction verification form, you will need to have this filled out and signed by the referee (it the form is available in time). If the form is not available at the time the sanction is served, you will need to fill in the required information, and I can sign once I've confirmed that the player or coach served the sanction.

5. US Club sanctioned tournaments do NOT count toward CYSA suspensions.

6. The player pass will be returned to me once the suspension is served.

7. You will need to pick-up the player pass from me.

 

IV. For US Club Sanctioned Tournaments:

I don't have anything to do with this process. The excerpt below was taken from NorCal Premier League Website. I am not sure where the US Club pass goes, so you better know before leaving the tournament.

Rule 211 League discipline

A send off (red card) will result in a minimum of a one (1) game suspension. A send offas a result of two cautions will result in the player being suspended for the next match. If a player is sent off during the weekend, they may not play the remainder of the weekend. Games sat out that weekend can count against the suspension, as long as noted on the Roster and/or Referee Game Report as such. Any team using suspended players will be disciplined the same as using illegal players. The League office must be notified of the send off within 24 hours by the home team.

The player card can be returned to the team as long as the Referee Game Report shows the infraction, the players name and number.
