Discipline Notes


When a red card is reported by a referee, the ejected player will show up in the Discipline list with a temporary default of a "tbd" game suspension, $20 fine and fine status of "to be determined". All new red card suspensions will be reviewed at the Discipline Hearings on Thursday evening and ejected players are strongly encouraged to attend. After the Discipline Hearings, the suspensions will be updated to the actual number of games / fine and the fine status will be updated to "owing" until paid.

Players who receive a second caution in a game and are ejected will generally receive a one game suspension but this is not always the case. In some cases, a longer suspension will be applied, especially if the player does not calmly leave the field of play once ejected and cause no further disruption. If you receive two cautions in a game and are ejected and your suspension is updated to 1 game, you do not need to attend a Discipline Hearing. If you receive two cautions in a game and are ejected and your suspension remains as "tbd", then you are strongly encouraged to attend a Discipline Hearing.

There is a column showing games served. You can hover your mouse over this number and a box will pop up showing the dates of the games served.

Payments can be made by e-transfer to payments@vmslsoccer.com. Be sure in the text notes of your e-transfer to indicate that it is a fine payment and who it is for.
