The discipline for the 2018-19 BCCSL season will be tracked within the GotSoccer system. The BCCSL follows all of BC Soccer’s discipline and sanctioning policies.
The BCCSL discipline process is this:
- The referee reports any cards or discipline issued in the system
- The BCCSL Discipline Manager reviews all discipline reported after every weekend
- Discipline Committee members from each district can view discipline records, along with suspended players being listed on game cards with a strikethrough
- The BCCSL is moving away from hearings for standard non-disputable discipline such as accumulated cards or straight red cards, however a hearing may be convened if required and that information would be conveyed to the team contact and district discipline representative
In general, red cards during exhibition matches should be reported to the organization with jurisdiction.
For example, if two teams from the same club are playing each other, any red cards would be sent to that club. If teams are from different clubs within the same district, the youth district would have jurisdiction. If teams are from different districts, BC Soccer would have jurisdiction.
Note that if red cards are received by BC Soccer, BC Soccer may also assign discipline to be undertaken at the district, league or club level depending on the incident.
Discipline hearings are held at 6501 Sprott Street, Burnaby at 6.00 pm on Thursday’s.
