Discipline for Cumulative Cards:

The MMMSL will use the following point system to track cumulative yellow and red cards within a division:

  1. Yellow Card = 1 point
  2. Yellow Card + Red Card (2nd Yellow) = 2 points + next game suspension
  3. Red Card for deliberate hand ball to stop a goal or deliberate foul to stop a goal = 2 points + next game suspension
  4. Red Card for any offense not listed in #3 = 3 points + next game suspension
  5. Yellow Card + Red Card (straight Red for foul in #3) = 3 points + next game suspension
  6. Yellow Card + Red Card (straight Red for foul in #4) = 4 points + next game suspension

The suspensions for cumulative points will be as follows:

  • 3 points = 1 game
  • 6 points = 2 games
  • 9 points = 3 games
  • 12 points = 8 games or remainder of season, whichever is longer

Cumulative points do not carry over from one season to the next. However, if a player is under suspension at the end of a season, the player must serve the balance of their suspension at the beginning of the next season. If the player changes divisions from one season to the next, then the suspension will be served in the new division.

Example #1 - a player gets a yellow card in games 1, 2, and 5. The player would be suspended from game 6 (cumulative points - 3 points).

Example #2 - a player gets a straight red card in game 4 for spitting on an opponent. The player would be suspended from game 5 (red card) and from game 6 (cumulative points - 3 points).

Example #3 - a player gets two yellow cards in game 8. The player would be suspended from game 9 (red card) and would have 2 points. In game 11, the same player gets another yellow card. The player would be suspended from game 12 (cumulative points - 3 points).
