Red Cards

Reasons for Red Cards:

  • is guilty of serious foul play
  • is guilty of violent conduct
  • spits an opponent or any other person
  • denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by
  • deliberately handling the ball (this does not apply to a goalkeeper within  his own penalty area)
  • denies an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent moving towards the player's goal by an offence punishable by a free kick or a penalty kick
  • uses offensive, insulting or abusive language
  • receives a second caution  in the same game:
    • is guilty of unsporting conduct
    • shows dissent by word or action
    • persistently infringes the Laws of the Game
    • delays the restart of play
    • fails to respect the required distance when play is restarted with a corner kick or free kick
    • enters or re-enters the playing court without the referees permission
    • deliberately leaves the playing court without the referees permission


if a player or coach receives a red card, the referee will make a report to our referee director.

Unless the referee director reuests a Discipline Committee a player will be suspended for a minimum of one game, coaches for two games. The referee director will notify the coaches of the teams for which the payer/coach will serve the suspension (players cannot be guest players until they served the suspension). As the coach you might want to have the red card suspension form signed by the referee.

Player passes stay with the team, any team caught cheating will be suspended for two games per incident.
