Q?

Can a yellow card be appealed?

A.

Yellow cards cannot be appealed:

5.7 DISCIPLINE AND PROCEDURES (D & P) COMMITTEE
4. LIMITATIONS ON GROUNDS FOR APPEAL.

a. A Referee’s decision on facts may not be appealed. Any facts contained in the match report or any supplemental report obtained from the Referee shall be conclusive of the facts, unless revised by the Referee before the hearing. The DISCIPLINE AND PROCEDURES COMMITTEE has no power to make a fact-finding that differs from the Referees statement of facts.

b. A Yellow Card offense may not be appealed. A Red Card issued for an accumulation of two Yellow Cards may not be appealed.

Q?

What should I do if my team needs to forfeit?

A.

If your team needs to forfeit, you should notify the League administrator BY EMAIL as soon as possible. Please be sure to also email the captain of the opposing team as a courtesy!

If you want to avoid paying the referee fees, the deadline to notify the League administrator is THURSDAY BY 4 PM; otherwise, your team will be charged the full referee fees ($110) in addition to the forfeit fine. Please see Rule 6.2 Forfeits – Penalties for more information.

Q?

How do I join a team? How much does it cost?

A.

Players must first be invited by a captain to join a team before they can register. Please complete the Find a Team form and your information will be shared with captains who are looking for players.

The player registration fee is $40 for each team that you want to play on for the 2015/16 season (valid from beginning of Fall 2015 through the end of the Summer 2016 season). The League does not offer a discount on multiple registrations.

Additionally, most teams require players to pay dues to the team captain to help cover the costs for team registration, uniforms, referee fees, etc.

Q?

I want to register a new team in AMSA. What are the fees?

  • $600 team registration fee for each round during the regular season ($600 for the Fall round; $600 for the Spring round); $400 for the Summer season.
  • Player registration fee: $40 per player per team for the 2015/16 season (from beginning of Fall 2015 through the end of Summer 2016).

Additionally, each team pays 50% of the referee fees for each game, which is $55 per team per game for a full referee crew (Center Referee + 2 Assistant Referees).

Q?

How do I appeal a “notice of penalties” for either a red card or other infraction?

A.

If you received a red card during a match, the League will send you and/or your captain a “notice of penalties” email by the following Wednesday. Once you receive the notification, if you decide to appeal the red card, please follow the steps in the AMSA Appeal Process.

Likewise, if as a player, captain, or team, you receive a “notice of penalties” for something other other than receiving a red card and decide to appeal the penalties imposed, please follow the steps in the AMSA Appeal Process.
