Referee's Guidelines

    PCSL Rules of Operation: Referees are recommended to familiarise themselves with the relevant sections of the PCSL Rules of Operation.
   1. Prior to kickoff referees must call all players off the field then lead the two teams onto the field of play in an orderly fashion at the centreline. The two teams must then form a single line facing one or other sideline shake hands then take up their starting positions in preparation for kickoff.
   2. Substitutions. Teams in all divisions of the PCSL are permitted five (5) player substitutions during games plus unlimited substitutions at half-time. If a player who has been substituted for earlier in the game returns to the game, then he/she is counted as a change unless that player returns at half time. Each team may dress and include on the team list up to eighteen (18) players for games.
   3. Foul or abusive language: The PCSL has a very clear policy with regards to discipline and particularly will not tolerate the undue use of foul or abusive language on the field of play, by players on the bench and/or by club officials. Discipline guidelines are published on this website under 'Administration > Discipline Guidelines'.
    4. The league official responsible for referees and referee scheduling is Doug Summers. Any referee related questions or concerns should be addressed to Doug Summers. Please refer to the PCSL Directory for contact information.
