Any player/coach that is sent off in a match is required to be escorted from the field. The Field Marshal will radio the Ops Tent, and a SYL Staff Member will escort the player from the sidelines to outside of the designated field area.
If a player/coach is to be suspended for a match, there will be a notation on the match folder indicating that the player/coach is to be suspended for that match. Please verify that this player/coach does not participate and that a suspended player is dressed in street clothes. Suspended players are permitted to be on the bench in street clothes, if they do not exceed the 18 player limit. If a suspended player/coach participate in a match in which they are suspended, their team is to forfeit that match.
Three (3) yellow cards to an individual player during group play will result in a one game suspension.
Two cautions followed by a red will result in player suspension for the remainder of the match as well as for the following match.
The league staff will review straight send offs. Pending the reason for the send-off, a player shall serve the minimum of a one-game suspension. In the event of serious foul play, violent conduct, referee assault or referee abuse, a player/coach may be suspended for more than one match by the league.
Yellow cards are erased after group play and players start clean in the next round. Should a player receive his/her third yellow card on the last game of group play and advance to the next round, the player will have to serve the suspension on the next game.
