League Specific

RE: Under 14

Janna Hemphill of , Ca asks...

If a player recieves a yellow card in three different games does he then get a red card? or is it three yellow cards in one game eguals a yellow card.

Answer provided by Referee Chuck Fleischer

None of the above Janna, unless your league has so decreed. Sometimes leagues like to have bookings accumulate and when reaching a certain point the player gets to watch a match instead of play. Check the league in which you referee or play...Regards,

Usually it's 2 in one gane and that's it. However, I know the WUSA had a policy of accumulated yellows over time and would make a player sit out a match or 2 even if she never had 2 yellows in one game. By the way, I'm sick over the folding of the WUSA. Great soccer, great players, great role models. A true shame.

Two Yellow Cards In A Game Will Give You A Red. Some Associations May Accumulate YCs over a season and when a certain number are accumulated be required to sit out the next game.
