Rules for the 2022 Boyne Mountain Soctoberfest

SocToberfest Tournament

FIFA Rules apply unless otherwise listed in these SocToberfest Tournament rules.


SafeSport Policy:
All registered teams must be able to provide a SafeSport certificate for all coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, etc. who will be present on the team bench. This certificate must be dated within one year of the tournament.



Red Card Policy:
All players, coaches, and managers are expected to conduct themselves within the spirit of the Laws of the Game. As such, any player, coach, or manager who is ejected (red card) from a game must sit out the remainder of that game and will be ineligible to participate in the next scheduled game.
a.) If a player is ejected from a game, the team will play short. If less than the minimum amount of players remain on the field, the game will be stopped and the score will stand at the time of ejection.
b.) The field marshal will retain the ejected individual’s player pass card and will deliver to the Tournament Headquarters. After the required number of games is served, the coach or manager is responsible for picking up the player pass card from the Tournament Headquarters.
c.) The Tournament, in agreement with the USYSA Tournament Hosting Agreement, will take the following action:
i.) The issuance of all red cards, yellow cards, and other matters involving the conduct of a team, its players, coaches, or supporters will be recorded by our organization. This information shall be reported to the home State Association and home Club/League.
ii.) Any player, coach, or manager who does not sit out the required number of games during the Tournament, must do so starting with their next League game.



Tournament Cancellation/Refund Policy:
Should the tournament be cancelled due to lack of sufficient team numbers to conduct a tournament, team fees will be refunded to the original method of payment (minus a $50 administrative fee). Credit/debit card fees will not be refunded.


COVID-19 Refund Policy:
If the hosted tournament is cancelled due to COVID-19, all teams will be refunded 100% of their team fee (less card fees) in the same form as payment was made. If a team chooses to have a credit applied to their account, credits will be used toward future hosted tournaments.
