Proposed Rule Changes

 

 

Proposed by SYA Club Rep:

 

J.  Team Obligations     

            7.  Sidelines – All Age Groups

ADD:  from the players, and shall remain opposite their respective teams with the midfield line serving as the dividing line between the two age groups of spectators.

 

Change to read:

            b.   Spectators for both teams shall take the opposite side of the pitch  from the players, and shall remain opposite their respective teams with the midfield line serving as the dividing line between the two age groups of spectators. The game officials will be responsible for enforcing these rules.  The team’s TSL MUST take the same side of the pitch as the spectators. (FWAS made a recommendation that teams spray paint oranges boxes on the side line for teams to stand.)

Motion failed

Clubs who voted for this proposed rule change:  SYA, ODFC

 

Recommendation:  The WAGS Board of Directors does not recommend this Proposed Rule Change.  This rule change was proposed in the past and the membership believed that it would be difficult if not impossible to enforce such a rule.

 

 

Proposed by CRFT Club Rep

 

G. Division Size and Structure

 

d.       ADD:  Teams accepted into WAGS from the Wait List will be place in the lowest division for their age group.

 

Change to Read:  Teams will be accepted into WAGS from the top of the Waiting List.  Teams accepted into WAGS from the Wait List will be place in the lowest division for their age group. Any team entering the League from the Wait List and requesting a Sit Out will have their entry deferred until the following season.  Entry will be offered to the next team on the wait list.

 

 

Recommendation:  The WAGS Board of Directors does not recommend this Proposed Rule Change.  The Board’s discretion in division structure allows for competitive placement of new teams.  This serves not only the incoming teams but also existing WAGS teams in creating a balance, competitive environment. Implementation of this rule would also serve as a deterrent  for any strong clubs considering becoming members of WAGS in the future. Motion failed

Clubs who voted for this proposed rule change:  SSA, CRFT, SYC, SYA, STER, WWSC, BAC

 

Proposed by R & D

 

O. Protests & Appeals Procedures

 

1.       Players, Coaches and Team Officials

ADD:  a.  The referee’s judgment in issuing a card is not grounds for protest and may not be appealed.  According to FIFA Circular 821; “A suspension is to be enforced for all dismissals (red cards) regardless of the reason and will include send-offs for receiving a second yellow card as well as for actions leading directly to the dismissal.

Delete:  The referee’s judgment in issuing a card is not grounds for protest and may not be appealed The only basis for protest shall be whether a card was issued in accordance with the FIFA Laws of the Game, as modified by the WAGS Rules, or that the point award, assessment, or suspension was not in accordance with these rules.

 

Change to Read: a. The referee’s judgment in issuing a card is not grounds for protest and may not be appealed According to FIFA Circular 821; A suspension is to be enforced for all dismissals (red cards) regardless of the reason and will include send-offs for receiving a second yellow card as well as for actions leading directly to the dismissal.     Motion Passed
