The COYSA Discipline Committee is formed with a representative from each Club and a Chairman.  The Committee oversees both outdoor and indoor soccer play.

The Discipline Chairman is Matt Smith.

If you have a discipline concern about a coach or parent, please email Matt directly.

If you have a discipline concern about a referee, please contact our Referee-in-Chief, Al, directly:  kelownaref@gmail.com

Two yellow cards in one game equals a red card.
Three yellow cards in a season equals a red card.
Any time a red card is received, it comes with an automatic one game suspension. 

Please remember that no matter what the offense, if a red card is issued, the player (or coach) must leave the game immediately without dispute.  A report is then sent by the Referee to the Discipline Committee who then decide the appropriate punishment according to the discipline guide.

Anyone receiving a red card or expulsion from a game may not participate in ANY soccer related activity (playing, coaching, refereeing, training etc) until the suspension has been completed.

For most misconducts, disciplinary action consists of suspensions from playing, coaching, officiating or attending games.  For more serious incidents, the Discipline Committee reviews the report of the incident and has the option of conducting a disciplinary hearing.

The Discipline Committee follows BC Soccer's Policies and Procedures which may be found here:
