I Received A Card/Warning/Expulsion. Now What Do I Do?

So, you received a Card/Warning/Expulsion at a match under the Authority of NSYSA and you don't know what to do.

Let's try to review/explain the process so you are aware of what you Must Do and what you Can Do.

NSYSA has an Approved NSYSA Disciplinary Policy-> that covers the disciplinary process used by the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee in conjunction with the NSYSA Operating Procedures (Article 13).

Click here to view the NSYSA Disciplinary Policy:Going


You Received A Yellow Card/Warning.

A Yellow Card/Caution or Warning was issued during a match.

You are not required to attend any hearing. There are no pre-scheduled disciplinary hearings for one to simply attend. Your misconduct will be adjudicated by the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee following receipt of the report.

Should you wish to contest the Card/Warning that was issued, you must formally request a Disciplinary Hearing in accordance with the NSYSA Disciplinary Policy-> noted above.

Please note that should you receive three (3) Yellow Cards / Cautions /Warnings in a season that are upheld by the Committee, you will be required to Sit from your next match and one (1) additional match for each subsequent Yellow Cards/Warning that you receive and that is upheld by the Committee.


You Received A Red Card or were Expelled.

A Red Card was issued or you were Expelled during a match.

You are not required to attend any hearing. There are no pre-scheduled disciplinary hearings for one to simply attend. Your misconduct will be adjudicated by the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee following receipt of the report.

A one game suspension is automatic unless:
The individual is contacted by the Disciplinary Committee and advised in writing that a greater suspension may apply. Reference the Sanctions noted under the NSYSA Operating Procedures-> {Article 13} to determine if a greater than one game suspension may be applicable.
OR
The individual is contacted by the Disciplinary Committee and advised in writing that the SendOff/Expulsion has been canceled.

Should you wish to contest the Card that was issued or Expulsion, you must formally request a Disciplinary Hearing-> in accordance with the NSYSA Disciplinary Policy-> noted above.


NSYSA Disciplinary Committee

Should you have any questions or concerns about a Misconduct Issue and/or the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee, please contact the NSYSA Disciplinary Director at disciplinary@NSYSAsoccer.org


What should you do if you receive a Card/Warning/Expulsion and you are participating in a NSYSA League but do not Reside within NSYSA coverage area?

If you are participating on a NSYSA league and you receive a Card (Yellow / Red) or receive a Warning/Expulsion and reside outside the geographical boundaries of the Association, your misconduct/s will still be adjudicated by the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee following receipt of the report.

If you wish to request a Disciplinary Hearing to Contest a card, you must do so in accordance with the NSYSA Disciplinary Policy-> noted above. However, the Association has no desire to force individuals residing outside the district boundaries to physically travel to a hearing location within NSYSA. Accordingly, should a formal hearing be scheduled, accommodations will be made to help allow such members to attend such a hearing via a telephone conference call.

Again, should you have any questions or concerns about a Misconduct Issue and/or the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee, please contact the NSYSA Disciplinary Director at disciplinary@NSYSAsoccer.org


What should you do if you receive a Card/Warning/Expulsion and you are NSYSA Team/Member participating in a non-NSYSA controlled League (i.e. PDL, Washington Youth State League or District III)?

If you are a NSYSA Member participating in a non-NSYSA league and you receive a Card (Yellow / Red) or receive a Warning/Expulsion, your misconduct/s will be adjudicated by the applicable Leagues Disciplinary Committee and not by the NSYSA Disciplinary Committee.

Please address any questions regarding disciplinary matters/actions from such a league to that particular Disciplinary Committee/League.
