Zero Tolerance Policy

Zero Tolerance Policy

Northboro Youth Soccer has adopted the following Zero Tolerance Policy for ALL NYSA age groups and teams.

Coaches, players, parents and all members of the Northboro Youth Soccer Community are expected to uphold this policy and respect the referee regaedledd of their age or experience.

Zero tolerance violations will be taken very seriously by NYSA and NVYSL and will result in warnings, suspensions, or removal from Northboro Youth Soccer.

Coaches please read the following policy and review with all players and parents at the start of each season.

For Sunday U7 and U8 games NYSA will assign an adult referee to assist and mentor our new referees. Many of these new referees are young and just starting their careers as soccer referees. Please be respectful and support these young referees, and report any Zero tolerance violations to the Adult Referee mentor.


Every coach and all spectators shall support the referee. Failure to do so undermines the referee’s authority and has the potential to create a hostile environment for players, the referee, and all the other participants and spectators. Consequently, NVYSL has adopted the following rule:

No coach or spectator is to address the referee during the game!

  • A coach may give polite and friendly feedback to a referee.
  • Absolutely no sarcasm, no harassment, and no intimidation.


  • 1st Minor Infraction – Referee should ignore
  • 1st Serious Infraction – Caution or ejection depending on seriousness of infraction
  • 2nd Minor Infraction – A verbal warning
  • 3rd Infraction – Caution
  • 4th Infraction – Ejection

Spectators –Allowable Exceptions During the game:

  • Responding to a referee initiating a communication

  • 1st Infraction – Referee should stop the game and ask the coach to quiet the offending spectator.

    3rd Infraction – The referee shall instruct the coach to direct the spectator to leave the field.
  • The referee should abandon the game if the spectator does not leave the field. If the referee abandons the game, the referee shall file a report, and NVYSL may impose a forfeit on the spectator’s team.
