Discipline Notes

PLEASE NOTE

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, “tbd” served, “tbd” fine and fine status of "to be determined".

All new red card suspensions will be reviewed at the Discipline Hearings on Thursday at 7:30pm and ejected players are expected to attend.

The “tbd” status will continue until the ejected player attends the Discipline Hearings.

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 such time that it is “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 expected 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 for discipline fines can be made by your Team Staff on your Team Page, under the Fine Summary report, or by sending an 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.

Players are welcome to email discipline@vmslsoccer.com to:
  • notify the league that they can not appear
  • provide written input in the case where they are unable to appear
  • inquire about appealing their suspension in the case where their suspension was determined in their absence
