BAYS Zero Tolerance Guidelines for Games

Zero Tolerance violations by coaches and/or spectators needs to be reported by the Referees of the match in each of their referee reports according to a sliding scale of 0 to 3 where 0 = no ZT up to 3 = most severe ZT violator. LAW #5, Referees/Refereeing Systems/Ejections/Game Report, is in effect.

A Guide for the referee’s ZT numerical report follows, and specific comments are welcome:

Zero Tolerance Policy Level

2MajorSignificant comments. Did disrupt game. Cautions issued or should have been issued.
3SevereMajor distractions for the referee(s). Ejections for ZT occurred or should have. May or may not have considered terminating the game.

All Red Cards violations issued are reported to the Ejection Secretary, and at the referee’s discretion he can report egregious misconduct or issued red cards to his Referee Assignor.
