Each Adult League will have a League Director who will be the contact person for Team Captains and the point person for the DUSC Board of Directors. The League Director will be announced at the Captain’s Meeting.
Each team must designate a Team Captain. The Team Captain must identify them self to the League Director prior to the first game via an email to email@example.com. There will be a Captain’s Meeting prior to the first weekend of games to go over roles, responsibilities and expectations. A communication will be sent to notify of date, time and location.
Season-Ending Injury or Pregnancy:
To drop a player who has suffered a season-ending injury or pregnancy, the following documentation must be submitted to the League Director:
- Correspondence via writing from the Team Captain stating the name of the injured or pregnant player, date, time of injury, and location.
- In the case of an injury/illness, a medical professionals note to prove extent of the injury/illness.
Returning to Play After Injury, Pregnancy, Illness:

- A medical release from a medical professional stating that the individual is cleared to play.
Each team will play a minimum of fourteen (14) League Games to determine final standings.
The top eight (8) teams at the culmination of the League Games will be placed into the Play Offs, which will be considered a Quarter Final and Semi Final followed by a Championship game. As the league grows we will consider adding more teams to the Play Offs.
If a team withdraws or dissolves and is no longer able to participate in the league, all games that were previously played and all games scheduled will be resulted as an 8-0 victory for the opposing team.
Games will kick off on the scheduled time. Any team that does not have the sufficient number of players for a game will forfeit the game. There will be a 10-minute grace period from the scheduled kick off time for a team to provide the sufficient number of players. If the sufficient number of players turn up after the allotted time, the teams can still play the game providing both teams agree to play however, the forfeit will still stand. All forfeit wins are considered 3-0 games. The officials are not obligated to stay and officiate the game once a forfeit has been determined.
The DUSC Board of Directors will utilize the club Referee Assignor to assign officials for all games.
8v8: One center official.
Fees for officials are included in the registration fee and will be paid for by DUSC. No money is to be given to the official’s prior, during or after games.
Each week Team Captains will be emailed Game Cards/Reports to bring to the field for each game. The Game Cards/Reports will have teams rosters, the date, field and kick off time. The Game Cards/Reports are to be handed to the Center Official prior to the beginning of the game.
The Center Official will check in each player prior to the beginning of the game. The referee will check each player on the roster, identification, player equipment and go over any rules that may be unclear. Only players on the Game Card/Report are permitted to participate in the game.
At any point the Center Official can request identification from any player. If it is not presented the player will not be permitted to participate in the game.
At the culmination of the game the Team Captain and Center Official will sign the Game Card/Report to show agreement of the score, goal scorers and any cautions or comments that the Center Official may want to make.
It is the responsibility of the Team Captain to submit a copy of the Game Card/Report to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of the culmination of the game.
An accumulation of four (4) yellow cards over the course of the league season will result in a one game suspension. Once the Play Offs commence each player yellow card slate is wiped clean. For example, should a player pick up their fourth yellow card in the final game of the season before Play Offs, that player will be permitted to play in the Play Off game should their team progress to that stage.
A straight red card means a player is dismissed from the game, no re-entry into the game and nor shall the team be able to substitute a player in to replace the dismissed player. The team will play with one less player. A straight red card is an automatic two game suspension, always the next game on the schedule. If a player receives a red card in the final league game prior to Play Offs, the player in question will not be permitted to play the first Play Off game. Two yellow cards culminating in a red card meets with a one game suspension.
A blue card awarded to a participating player results in the player being removed from the game for a duration of seven (7) minutes. The duration is to be used as a cooling off period for the player. When a player is issued a blue card they can be replaced on the field by a substitute. A blue card can be given in three (3) different circumstances. (i). Players arguing in an unacceptable way a call from the center official. (ii). Opposing players screaming at each other in a way that it is interfering with the game. (iii). Teammates screaming at each other in a way that it is interfering with the game. A yellow card and a blue card may be given at the same time.
DUSC is a zero tolerance Adult League with regards fighting, punching, slapping, spitting, violent behavior pre, during or post game. If an offense of this magnitude happens the player(s) in question will be removed from the League and not allowed back. No refund will be given.
KICK OFF TIME:
All games are expected to kick off at the scheduled time. If a team is not present or does not meet the minimum player requirement to play the game there is a 10-minute grace period for the game to kick off before the game is determined a forfeit.
