What is a Discipline hearing:
|A discipline hearing is a formal meeting by team Representative to "hear" a misconduct by a player or team|
What do they Hear?
|The Committee only hears a limited number of league issues. Reds Cards for Serious Foul Play or Violent Conduct, Game Forfeits and Game terminations.|
What about Appeals or Referees Assault or Abuse?
Appeals are heard by a separate adjudication committee only after there has been a Discipline Hearing. Referee Assault & Referee Abuse are considered a more serious misconduct and those hearings are conducted by Georgia State Soccer and may carry, not just our league, but a state wide suspension or ejection from play.
Why would my team be excused?
|Players & Teams have a right to an impartial (unbiased) three member committee. If the hearing is for a team/player in your division or club you may be excused from that hearing.|
Are there ever more than one hearing a night?
|Yes, sometimes the committee has to hear more than one misconduct issue so you may sit for one or more, but you may also be excused from one but still have to hear another. That is why we schedule all four divisions.|
What do I need to bring?
|Nothing, All information you will need will be distributed at the hearing. That is why we ask the committee members to be there a minimum of 15 minutes early for instruction.|
What do I do during a hearing?
|You will sit and hear testimony from the "defendant", testimony from the opposing team and other witnesses. There will also be Referee/Assistant referee reports to review, After "hearing" every thing and asking questions. Your committee will decide the discipline of the misconduct and notify the player/team & league.|
