Ejections

 

Players who are ejected for non fighting related reasons are barred from playing in the next game.

 

The first time a player is ejected from a game due to fighting, he/she is barred from playing in the next two games.  The second time the same player is ejected from a game for fighting, he will be expelled for the remainder of the season.  This rule does not apply in the case of a player fouling out of a game.

 

A parent ejected from a game will be barred from attending games for the rest of the season.

 

A coach who is ejected from a game must leave the field immediately and is barred from coaching the next game. If a coach is ejected from a game a second time, he/she is barred from coaching any team in the NCJLA for the remainder of the season.

 

Offensive Language Rule Adoption

 

The NCJLA has added the following rule and guidelines regarding offensive language, effective March 17, 2011:

 

An official shall eject from the game any player, substitute, non-playing member of a team, coach, assistant coach or anyone officially connected with a competing team or fan using a racial slur or derogatory term related to race, religion, color, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.
 

A coach or assistant coach ejected by an official for using a racial slur or derogatory term shall be suspended from coaching any NCJLA team for the remainder of the season.

 

Any player that is ejected twice in a season by an official for using a racial slur or derogatory term shall be suspended from playing in the NCJLA for the remainder of the season.

 

In the event that a racial slur or derogatory term is not heard by the official, the offended player(s) should inform their coach at the earliest possible time.  At the next official time out, the coach should inform the head referee or umpire, who should in turn inform the opposing coach of the allegation.  The offended player(s) and any others who heard the comments are encouraged to file a Sportsmanship Incident report with the NCJLA as soon as possible after the game, which gives the NCJLA a basis to conduct an investigation and take action as deemed appropriate.

 

Coaches are encouraged to discuss this rule with their players.
