BOYS SOCCER EJECTION POLICY
2013 FALL WORKSHOP
Boys Soccer Ejection Policy
RATIONALE:
The change in penalty for ejections involving violent
conduct and abusive language is to deter behavior being
exhibited during boys’ soccer matches. This change is
meant to deal with the actions of the players. It was not
intended to put a spotlight on the officials or the rules of
the game. In order to effectively implement the new
policy, we are asking that officials continue to call the
game in the manner they have been.
WASHINGTON INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION | 2013-14 ONLINE RULES CLINICS
Boys Soccer Ejection Policy
Violent Conduct:
• "The commission of a violent act against an opponent, an official, a
spectator, teammate or other individuals when the ball is in or out of
play."
• A player is guilty of violent conduct if he/she uses excessive force or
brutality against an opponent when not challenging for the ball.
• He/she is also guilty of violent conduct if he/she uses excessive force
or brutality against a team-mate, spectator, match official or any
other person.
• Violent conduct may occur either on the field of play or outside its
boundaries, whether the ball is in play or not.

RULE VIOLATIONS AND PENALTIES
2013 FALL WORKSHOP
Rule Violations and Penalties
The strength of the WIAA lies in
the willingness and ability of
the membership to support the
rules and regulations adopted
and, if necessary, to support
the penalties placed upon
members, if it is determined
that those same rules and
regulations have been violated.
WASHINGTON INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION | 2013-14 ONLINE RULES CLINICS
Rule Violations and Penalties
Self Reporting Rule Violations by Member Schools
When a school or the WIAA staff becomes aware that a
rule has been violated, the offending school principal (or
designee) must report the infraction and any action
taken by the school in writing within five (5) school
business days to:
1. the superintendent of the offending school
2. the league of school membership for review and
action, and
3. the appropriate WIAA District.
WASHINGTON INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION | 2013-14 ONLINE RULES CLINICS
Rule Violations and Penalties
The process for developing a penalty starts with the
offending school’s administrator contacting the league
president and determining the parameters for
developing the offending school’s proposal for penalty
and any other remedies.
If there is a doubt about a proposal, the WIAA staff must
be contacted for assistance. The WIAA staff may assist or
seek guidance from members of the review panel. The
penalties listed provide those available to the leagues,
districts, and WIAA Executive Board.
WASHINGTON INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION | 2013-14 ONLINE RULES CLINICS
Rule Violations and Penalties
Authority to impose forfeitures, withhold revenue shares,
and impose fines is vested in the League, WIAA District
Board, and WIAA Executive Board, while only the District and
Executive Boards have the authority to withhold allocations
and suspension, or place a member school on probation or
restriction.
Only the WIAA Executive Board has the authority to remove a
team from post-season competition or to suspend or expel a
member school. The Penalty Review Council is available to
assist schools, leagues, and districts in establishing the
appropriate penalty.
WASHINGTON INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION | 2013-14 ONLINE RULES CLINICS

appropriate penalty for violation of WIAA Rules and
Regulations. Once a WIAA member school discovers--or is
advised by another member school or WIAA staff--that it has
violated a WIAA rule, the school must contact that school’s
league president. The member school may propose
suggested penalties to the league or may seek advice from
the council by contacting the chair.

WIAA’s middle level vision for sportsmanship and citizenship is built on
expectations. It calls on the school community, teachers, coaches, students and
parents to strive for excellence in everything it does through “Give Me 5”
(Sportsmanship, Respect, Honor, Citizenship, and Courage).
The program encourages schools to implement a year-round plan shaped by the
participation of coaches, parents, teachers and students. In addition, each
school’s leadership is encouraged to support the school’s sportsmanship and
citizenship program using the “Give Me 5” program’s ideals and criteria.
All middle level member schools will receive a “Give Me 5” banner from the
WIAA. Please hang it in your gym and use it to help motivate great behaviors
and to make connections with other member schools.
Check out the documents on the WIAA website to help your school develop a
program.
