About

Discipline

Pinnacles Football Club requires that all its members and registrants adhere to the following conflict resolution procedures:

Policy Statement- Dispute Resolution

Players, team officials, game officials and clubs, districts and leagues (and their appointees, volunteers and staff) have a duty and responsibility to conduct themselves appropriately while respecting the FIFA Laws of the Game, BC Soccer rules, regulations and policy and the rules of the clubs, districts and leagues.

BC Soccer Rule 10 - Discipline provides BC Soccer broad responsibility to ensure the proper conduct of all individuals involved in sanctioned soccer.

Jurisdiction

BC Soccer
BC Soccer holds the jurisdiction for discipline over all of its member organizations. The main areas in which BC Soccer administers discipline directly are:

- BC Soccer Provincial Championships and Regional Qualifying Competitions
- Club/District/League Administrators and Executives
- Egregious Offenses
- Referee Abuse
- Matters that are referred to BC Soccer for any number of reasons.

Full Member Organization
(Youth Districts & Adult Leagues)
Full Member Organization of BC Soccer (Youth Districts and Adult Leagues) are empowered to handle any/all matters that relate to individuals and clubs that are registered within in them, unless specifically specified in BC Soccer’s Discipline Policy. For example, a player registered with a club under the jurisdiction of that Youth District. hat district or league that is ejected from a game, would be handled locally.

Exceptions to this are:
- if the person being brought to discipline is a District or league Administrator/Executive. This should be referred directly to BC Soccer.
- where the Youth Districts involved have given Jurisdiction to the Inter District League in which they participate.

Affiliated Soccer Clubs
Affiliated Soccer Club in general are empowered to handle any/all matters that are completely internal to the club itself. For example, teams and/or players that are not following the club Code of Conduct.

Exceptions to this would be if the person being brought to Discipline is a Club Administrator/Executive. This should be referred to their district to avoid any clear conflict of interest.

Youth Leagues
Youth Leagues have two main discipline functions.

1. To uphold discipline decisions imposed by the districts and by BC Soccer.

2. To administer discipline when the districts/clubs participating in the league have empowered them to do so.
