1) 2009 CSL Game Procedures
- a) All U16 and older teams are allowed a 22 person roster but only 18 of the 22 will be listed for any game. Non-participating players (players 19 through 22) need to be crossed off the game roster before the start of the game.
- b) Any misconduct written up as Violent Conduct will result in a minimum of six games suspension for the player. There is no appeal for a violent misconduct. Violent Conduct is now the only incident where a player’s card is retained by the center referee and mailed with the match report. DO NOT keep cards for any other misconduct (serious foul play, second yellow, etc.).
- c) All match reports MUST be sent in immediately after the game. A fine will be levied against the lead referee for a missing match report. The home team is responsible for giving the center referee 3 copies of the match report and a stamped addressed envelope before the start of the match.
- d) Referee fees have been increased to $1.66 per minute for 2019-2020. Game fees are collected in cash, half from each team before the start of the game.
- e) For SCSRA-Ventura, game fees are split evenly between the referee team.
- f) Youth referees (under 18) that work more than 10 games during the CSL season (this includes league cup) are eligible to receive a $50 voucher for uniforms.
- g) Casts are now permitted so long as they are not considered dangerous. It is up to the individual lead referee to make the determination of whether the cast is dangerous and whether to allow a player with a cast to play.
- h) The referee team shall be reimbursed $75 for any League Cup forfeit and not the full game fee.
