Send offs / Red Cards
Each playing league and each tournament is different.  Don't assume if you have handled a red card in the past, it will be handled the same way this time.  Communication is key.

If you are a REFEREE and you issue a RED CARD, please contact ARYSL Referee Coordinator, Bill Hall, or Ed Miles immediately.  We want to make sure all is handled correctly.

If you are a PLAYER or COACH and you are issued a RED CARD.  Please print out a NON PARTICAPATION FORM, then contact ARYSL Referee Coordinator.  Bill will do his best to describe the steps involved.  Dismissed Coaches is a minimum of a 2 game suspension.

ARYSL wants your feedback, good, bad or indifferent.

ARYSL is very proud of our referees, especially our youth referees.  Verbal abuse of referees will not be tolorated.
