CENTRAL EAST SOCCER LEAGUE (CESL)

2009 DISCIPLINE RULES

 

 

A NOTE ON HEARINGS AND DBR

The League web site shows a list of regularly scheduled dates to review all the discipline reports and to hold any required hearings.

 

The CESL uses the Discipline by Review System (DBR) as described in the Ontario Soccer Association Policies under Section 9.0 Discipline for all misconducts that can be administered by DBR unless a Hearing is requested within three days of the misconduct occurring.

With the DBR system there are no hearings before a discipline panel for misconducts that have a set mandatory suspension (eg 3 game suspension). The penalties (suspensions) are set out in the OSA policies and are automatic.

Where suspensions are quoted as a range the misconduct must be dealt with by

Discipline by Hearing and the parties subject to Discipline are required to attend at

the next scheduled hearing date as shown on the CESL website. NB: All fines in

excess of $250.00 are handled by Hearing (DBH).

 

Players

Most dismissals (red card offences) as well as three (3) yellow cards can be administered by DBR. Misconducts: 1.13 / 1.14 / 1.15 / 1.16 / 1.17 / 1.18 / 1.19 / 1.20 / 1.21 /1.25 / 1.58 have specific mandatory suspensions and will be administered by DBR unless a hearing is requested as described below.

Team Officials

For incidents involving Team Officials where a specific suspension is quoted --Misconducts: 2.13 / 2.14 / 2.15 / 2.16 / 2.25 / 2.58---the set suspension is mandatory and will be administered by DBR unless a hearing is requested as described below.

REFER TO Table 7: Standard Penalties for Misconduct by Team Officials at this URL:

http://www.soccer.on.ca/Publications/mam.nsf/e8a313099a9405d285256a8e0059d053/6c62a4cbedf507478525677e0056dce5?OpenDocument

 

The policy of the League is to review incidents within a week of receiving referee reports of Special Incidents or Dismissals. Because there are rarely multiple incidents to consider the panel will often review the incident by telephone consultation.

 

No appeal of DBR

Decisions made under DBR may not be appealed.

 

Requesting a hearing for a DBR Incident

(For example, players dismissed from a game.)

 

Any Player or Team Official has the right to request a hearing for misconducts or special incidents that fall under DBR provided that a request for a hearing is made in writing and received by the league within THREE DAYS of the occurrence of the offence. This “Request for Hearing” must arrive before the date of the next scheduled Discipline Review meeting, as published on the CESL website.  A $50.00 “request for hearing” fee must accompany the hearing request.  (This is returned only if the accused is found not guilty of the charge by the Discipline Hearing Panel.)

                                   

 

ADDITIONAL HEARING FEE

A “Discipline Hearing Administrative Fee” of $50.00 shall also be payable at the time of the Discipline Hearing. This is in addition to the Request for Hearing fee. The Discipline Hearing Administrative Fee is not refunded, regardless of the outcome of the hearing.

 

MANDATORY HEARINGS

Where suspensions are quoted as a range the misconduct must be dealt with by

Discipline by Hearing and the parties subject to Discipline are required to attend at the next scheduled hearing date as shown on the CESL website. NB: All fines in

excess of $250.00 are handled by Hearing (DBH).

 A “Discipline Hearing Administrative Fee” of $50.00 shall also be payable at the time of the Discipline Hearing. This is not refunded, regardless of the outcome of the hearing.

 

 A Player or Team Official may be represented at a hearing, when a hearing is

requested, by a Club or other Team Official. All Players must be accompanied at

any hearing by an adult,

The OSA Player book or Team Official identification card shall be presented at the

hearing.

 

REFEREE ASSAULT

In all cases alleging  Referee assault, the Discipline Hearing shall be heard by the District Association of the Player or Team Official accused of Referee assault.

 

DBR Procedures:

 

The Discipline Review Panel reviews the information provided on the game sheet, and if the information is sufficient the mandatory suspension (as listed in the published OSA rules) shall be imposed.

 

The Discipline Review Panel may, at its own discretion, upon completion of its review of the information provided, decide that more serious or additional charges are required. This will result in the referral to the Discipline by Hearing system.

                       

When the decision has been made, it shall be communicated to the player and the club and shall include the specifics of the suspension (dates or games).

 

A copy of the details of the suspension will be forwarded to the District Association of the player and team.

 

It is mandatory for the player book or team official book to be taken to the District Association where the person is registered so that the suspension details are entered into the player book.
