The KSL will not tolerate alcohol consumption on or close to the facilities used for our games. We will get rid of a team that has caused the problem before we will lose a field so no alcohol on the sideline, in the changerooms and players with alcohol on their breath or seen to be drinking will not be able to play any further part in the game. Fines and expulsion can result from drinking at the game or in the facility area.
Check the Discipline webpage to ensure you are aware if one of your players is suspended for accumulation of yellow card cautions whether from play on your team or teams in other divisions. You can also see if a player has not completed and submitted a red card send-off incident report to start his discipline preceedings.
Players signing as New Registrants can not play until they pay the KSL $20. Players can sign for more than one team as long as they have the approval of the KSL administration and the teams do not play in the same division. Players wanting to play on teams in different divisions must register online for each team. Check the discipline page for suspended players before you sign a new player. Download and copy two game day team lists from the player registration site for each match and give both to the referee with the $35 match fee before kick-off at the pre-match ID check.

Teams that forfeit and do not play their scheduled match will be fined $200. The league will look after paying the referee if required so do not pay the referee at the field if the game is not played. Teams short-handed can concede the points and use opposition players on loan for the night for a sanctioned exhibition match with no forfeit fee charged, each team will pay the referee $35 and the referee is expected to do the game but if the referee decides not to referee the exhibition do not pay the referee the game fees. Home teams that fail to properly line the field or bring a net will be fined $50. Red cards have a $20 / week fine.
