CCCAAA Zero Tolerance, Sportsmanship Letter
The Letter from CCCAA clearly states that NO Profane or Vulgar language is to be permitted, from coaching staff or from players. This applies to all Junior College matches. NO audible profanity, displays of vulgarity and unsportsmanlike conduct by student athletes and athletic game personnel is acceptable. The letter states that the guilty person is to be Sent Off, no prior Caution. Recommendation: Remind coaches prior to every game.
Teams in the Big 8 need a Big 8 Decorum report in addition to the send off.
Both are found under Referee:Misconduct.
SONOMA STATE UNIVERSITY DIRECTIONS & INFORMATION:
IMPORTANT TRAFFIC NOTICE! Due to ongoing construction in both directions on Highway 101 from Novato to Petaluma (which would affect those heading North on 101 towards Sonoma State University), traffic is notoriously heavy at any time of day through that 12-mile stretch of roadway. Please plan accordingly!
MORE DETAILS listed under Fields.
The NCAA Soccer Rules Committee has agreed with the interpretation that drones may not be used to monitor or record intercollegiate soccer games because they are not considered to be the type of "electronic device" contemplated by Rule 12.14.2, which permits enhanced communication between members of the on-site coaching staff.
The 2014-2015 NCAA Soccer Rulebook is available under Referee:Forms or Assessor:Forms. It can also be downloaded from>>
