I had a red card in my game.

If this was in your game and for your team, understand that you must give the referee the pass of either player or coach who was issued the red card/ejection. There is no reason to argue with the referee since it is there duty to fill out the report in which they may write something in language that can affect the amount of games a player is out. Be an adult and communicate with the ref he will never change his mind it is his authority. You never win.
If a coach is ejected the coach must leave the field premises and may be told to go watch the game in his/her car in the parking lot. The game will not continue until the coach has left understand that this is a game for the youth not about you the coach.

Home Team-If you are the home team and the other team received a red card/ejection then you must make sure the referee has obtained the pass and has a 24hour send off report to fill out. If not it is your duty to contact the right person for this form. Make sure the referee fills out and turns it in to the referee assignor or club manager. You must make contact that with the club manager to make sure that they know what happened so the appropriate measure is taken.

If you coach for CPL let your club manager know, contact Bill Norris(CPL coordinator) or Larry Svetich (PAD chair)

Red card non-participation report

Red card Non-Participation Report
If you have a player/coach that obtained a red card in a game and is suspended for __ amount of games, you must present this form to the center referee to sign and verify that the player is not playing the game and is suspended. This must done for every game the player is suspended. Once the suspension is complete the head coach should immediately get the Non-participation report to the Club Manager so that you will have your player's Player pass for the next game if you wait you may not get it on time. A Player or coach who received the red card does not have to show up for the next game but it is a great way to reinforce the bad action by having the player come to the game in street clothes watch the and see how it feels to not be out there with the team show them the real consequences.

Coaches if you receive a red card you may not be on the side lines or any where near the team. The referee may not begin the game until you have left the premises. Coaches if you are prone to getting a red card you should get an assistant coach with a coaching pass if there is no coach on the sideline with a pass the game will not be played.

Community Playing League Information U16-U19

While it's not much fun to lose a soccer game (although we all know there are many valuable coaching moments involved here), in general, it's especially difficult when an opponent runs up the score. After a blowout, the losing coach has the difficult job of taking care of players' hurt feelings and their self-esteem issues, not to mention disgruntled parents.

So, what can coaches and players do to avoid running up the score? Frequently, coaches of stronger teams can and will impose restrictions on their own players in an effort to hold down the score. The trick to success is to impose restrictions in a respectful way that is not insulting to the weaker team.

Below is a list, which by no means is comprehensive, that can provide guidance to coaches to minimize run up scores:

Have your players change positions, moving and removing players where appropriate.

Have players shoot only with their weaker foot.

Make 5 to 10 consecutive passes before attacking the goal.

Score only after successfully executing a wall pass or a specific dribbling fake in the offensive third of the field.

Require that no one score until a designated player scores.

Enforce three-touch or two-touch passing limitations. Allow two-touch passing in the defensive end and one-touch in the offensive end.

Following restarts (including throw-ins), all 11 players must touch the ball before attacking the goal.
