Fall 2013 CCSL Send off Process
CCSL, in conjunction with the referee associations and Cal North, has changed the Send-Off (Red Card) process. Red cards, send offs and suspensions will be tracked in your CCSL event. Player/Team Official passes will be returned to a team official, after the conclusion of the match, once the referee has verified the information on the game card is correct and complete.
If a Player or Coach is sent off during a game. The following steps will happen.
1) Referee will make a note of the player/adult information.
2) At the conclusion of the game, the referee crew will review the credentials (pass) for the offending player or adult and ensure the match cards contain the complete information for the sent off individual, (updating or correcting it if needed)
3) Player or adult sent off will be clearly identified on all three Game Cards, including jersey number and Cal North ID#. Home team, Away team and referee crew will sign all three game cards. The Center Referee and each team will keep a copy of the signed Game Card.
4) The referee crew will return ALL PASSES to the teams. Referee crew will NOT retain passes of sent off individuals.
5) Upon reporting the score, the Home Team will enter the Red Card information. The Away Team may enter the score if the home team does not enter it in a timely manner.
6) Referees will submit a game report within 24 hours of the send off. The web address is on the Game Card.
Players or Adults identified as Sent Off will be immediately suspended. The CCSL PAD committee will review the referee report and remove or extend suspensions per Cal North and CCSL rules. Players or Team Officials, who participate in any CCSL match while on suspension, may have additional penalties added to their suspension. There is no change to this part of the process.
Suspended players will have their match card information outlined in Red, with a strikeout through their name until their suspension is completed. Teams with suspended players or team officials should ensure they have a signed match card clearly showing, initialed by the referee, that the player or team official did not participate for each game of the suspension served.
Teams with suspended players or Adults should ensure they follow their local Registration League processes to verify suspensions served.
Scoring and Red Card/Send Off Input
In order to enter a score you will need
1. The event ID number
2. The event PIN
3. The game number
This information is all printed on the Game Card. Ensure you retain your signed copy.
You do not need to log into your GotSoccer team account to report a score
There are four ways to enter a score in the GotSoccer system:
1. Using a smart phone or computer. Go to www.gotsport.com/m and look for the "Event Scoring" link.
2. Scanning the QR code on the Game Card
3. Calling in on the phone number listed at the top of the Game Card.
After entering the Event ID, PIN and Game #, the scoring screen will be displayed.
1. Enter the score for both teams
2. If there was a send-off in the game
a. Click in the box after the R for the correct team name to report a Send Off or Red Card. (We do not need yellow cards reported)
b. Select the player information from the pull down menu. You do not need to enter a code for the send off.
c. If an adult was sent off, or the player is not listed, select the 'Other' box from the pull down menu and enter the individual's information including name, Jersey # and CalNorth ID. Click 'Add' to save the information.

Suspensions will be posted on the Event schedule site
Click on the Misconduct icon in the Bracket to show who is suspended and for how long.
Q: The GotSoccer link to enter scores also has a yellow card entry, do I need to list yellow cards too?
A: No, single yellow cards are not tracked. Two yellow cards given to the same player in the same match is a red card. That red card must be entered into the score report.
Q: The player that received the red card was hand written on the Game Card. How do I report that?
A: When you report the red card, if the player is not in the pull down list of players you can select "Other" then type in the players identifying information, including name, jersey number and CalNorth ID#
Q: We have two games this weekend. How do I know if a player was sent off yesterday?
A: Please print your match card the day of the game whenever possible to ensure it captures the most current information. Please report game scores promptly if there was a Send Off in the game. In addition you can review the suspensions list for your bracket at anytime.
Q: Why has the process changed?
A: The process has changed to ensure that players that have served their suspensions are not delayed in return to play. In addition, the US Mail may be stopping Saturday delivery soon, making the previous process too slow to be a fair one.
