UISA 3 strike policy
The Upper Island Soccer Association has adopted a program called three strikes and you’re out for their VIPL teams. The purpose of this policy is to control the conduct of the players, coaches, volunteers and parents on and off the soccer field who are participating in a soccer event.
This will include: to and from a game, during the game, practices, fund raisers and team socials. Violations can be as simple as a rude gesture towards a coach, spectator or referee and can be as complex as fighting, consuming alcohol, or illegal drugs use.
Anything that can be judged to be unethical for the game of soccer would be a violation of this policy, including the inappropriate use of all forms of social media.
Serious misbehavior warranting discipline will also be dealt with in accordance with BC Soccer Association’s Discipline Policy and Procedures, and BCSA Sanction Policy Sections 8 and 9.
Procedure for enforcing this policy:
Violations must be reported to the Riptide or Storm Steering committee in writing, giving names, dates, times and describing what occurred. If it is decided that a violation of the policy has occurred, a letter will be sent to the individual, informing them of the incident and that a first strike has been issued. The letter will also state that if further incidents should occur that a second and possibly a third strike will be issued, and that this person will have to be removed from their capacity in our program.
If a second violation is reported for the same individual, and is confirmed by the steering committee, the individual will be informed in writing of their second strike and their participation in youth soccer limited in a manner determined by the committee, which can include banning parents who have received a second strike from attending district youth soccer events. The person who has violated the policy and has received their second strike, has the right to appeal any decision the Riptide Steering committee has made in writing to UISA.
If a third violation is reported for the same individual, and is confirmed by the steering committee, the individual will be informed in writing of their third strike and their participation in all district youth soccer may be terminated, which can include banning the children of parents who have received a third strike from participation in district youth soccer.
