CONCUSSIONS - POLICY (March 2017) 

If the referee believes a player may have sustained a concussion, the player will be told to leave the match and may not return to play. Players, coaches and parents must NOT dispute the decision! NVYSL referees have received concussion education and have been instructed to err on the side of caution.  Concussions may occur even without a direct blow to the head and symptoms may not be immediately apparent. You can review the concussion training at the following:        

                                                                       http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/Headsup/training/index.html

NVYSL Grade 5/6 and lower games, heading will result in an IDFK.

 

All referees should view the video entitled "Ask, Tell, Dismiss" found here. (August 2015)

 

     This is the method the NVYSL wants to adopt to help referees deal with poor conduct by coaches. 

     The display of cards is only for the players. 

     However, as a last resort you may display cards if you feel your message to the coach has not been fully understood.
