About Discipline Index A Discipline Index is used to help maintain an enjoyable and sporting environment for all NCISL members. A teams Discipline Index will determine whether or not their application into the NCISL league will be accepted, accepted with sanctions, rejected or possible expulsion from the league Due to the increased numbers of cards last season and competitiveness of players, the NCISL BoD has decided that the DI will be a floating index determined prior to the start of the season. This index threshold based on last years DI. All teams that have a Discipline Index greater than 0.70 will be on Performance Bonds (PB). This adjustment of 0.20 over last years DI numbers will also be reflected in the PB return which has

decreased to 0.60. A team on PB must reach a DI of 0.60 to receive a refund of their PB. All teams will start at the YR1 level of the Performance Bonds Each Club in the NCISL should be striving to be in the Green Zone of the Discipline Index. How to determine your Discipline Index? 1 red card = 2 points 1 yellow card = 1 point Divide the total points by the total number of games that your team plays in the league during a season. This includes cup games. IE: A team plays 20 games in a season obtains 2 red cards and 15 yellow

cards. Their Discipline Index= (4+15)/20 The Discipline Index for this team is equal to 0.95 Discipline Index Red Zone 0.7 and above $100 for every 0.10 Warning Zone 0.6 0.69 Green Zone

0.01 0.59 Referee Complaints Each season, the NCISL receives several Referee complaints The NCISL Director of Referees will review each complaint and will respond to the person making the complaint, within 14 days If required, the Director will speak to the Referee involved in the complaint to obtain their view of the situation The Director will then determine if the complaint is justified or not If the Director determines the Referee requires more education in applying the Laws of the Game, he will speak to the Referee personally If the Director concludes the Complainant needs an explanation of the Laws, as the Referee

was correct in applying the Laws, he will communicate directly with this person Any serious misconduct by a Referee, who contravenes any of the OSA published rules, and a complaint is received by the NCISL, will be forwarded to the EODSA Referee Discipline Committee for further action Further information Dawn Dinsdale, [email protected] 613-852 4144 Andy Weston, Head Referee [email protected] Tim Wong, Director of Discipline [email protected] Or check out our web site www.ncisl.com
