Disciplinary Point System:
Fouls Committed – 1 point per foul
First Yellow Card – 3 points
Second Yellow Card (resulting in a Red Card) – 5 points
Straight Red Card – 6 points
Disciplinary Committee suspension – 6 points

  • If a player receives a First Yellow Card and then a Second Yellow Card the total points accrued will be 5 points (rather than 8 points)
  • If a player receives a First Yellow Card and then a Straight Red Card the total points accrued will be 9 points (6+3)
  • If a player receives a First Yellow Card and then Disciplinary Committee sanctions the total points accrued will be 6 points (rather than 9 points)
  • If a player receives a Straight Red Card and Disciplinary Committee sanctions then the total points accrued will be 6 points.

Note: The team totals above will be updated each Monday afternoon, but only through the previous week's games, not the most recent weekend. Each game must be reviewed and verified, and any Disciplinary Committee actions incorporated, before the new totals are posted.
