  • The weather

4
Law 1 The Field of Play
5
Law 1 The Field of Play
  • Is the surface safe
  • Dry enough (no standing water)
  • Free of pot holes, rocks, major divots, glass or
    other hazards?
  • Are the goal posts anchored correctly?
  • Is the netting safe?

6
Law 1 The Field of Play
  • This means you have to check the field before the
    game
  • This means you have to arrive in time to do this
  • The home team or tournament staff are responsible
    to correct any problems

7
Law 2 The Ball
8
Law 2 The Ball
  • The ball needs to be round and smooth and the
    proper size
  • No cuts, scrapes or an exposed valve
  • Proper pressure, not too hard

9
Law 2 The Ball
  • This means you have to check the ball (and spare)
    before the game
  • This means you have to arrive in time to do this
  • Dont leave this to the last minute

10
Law 4 The Players Equipment
11
Law 4 The Players Equipment
  • Compulsory Equipment
  • Jersey or shirt (must have sleeves)
  • Shorts
  • Shin guards and socks (which much cover shin
    guards)
  • Footwear (need to be safe)

Law 4 The Players Equipment Not Allowed?
13
Law 4 The Players Equipment Not Allowed?
  • A player must not use equipment or wear anything
    that is dangerous to himself or another player
    (including any kind of jewelry).

14
Law 4 The Players Equipment Jewelry
  • All items of jewelry are potentially dangerous.
    The term dangerous can sometimes be ambiguous
    and controversial, therefore in order to be
    uniform and consistent any kind of jewelry has to
    be forbidden.
  • Players are not allowed to use tape to cover
    jewelry. Taping jewelry is not adequate
    protection.
  • Rings, earrings, leather or rubber bands are not
    necessary to play and the only thing they can
    bring about is injury.

15
Law 4 The Players Equipment Non Compulsory
16
Law 4 The Players Equipment Non Compulsory
  • Non-Compulsory Equipment you need to examine
  • Headwear
  • Knee braces
  • Casts

17
Law 4 The Players Equipment Headwear
  • Bandannas
  • Not allowed
  • Sweat headbands
  • Strictly not allowed but the CSA told us to
    allow tight fitting headbands to control hair
  • Hats
  • Caps not allowed except goalkeepers
  • Use reasonable discretion for hats in cold
    weather are they safe?

18
Law 4 The Players Equipment Headwear
  • Head protectors
  • Modern head and face protectors specifically
    allowed by FIFA
  • Eye wear
  • Strictly speaking FIFA and CSA say only sports
    safety glasses are allowed.
  • SNS has provided a less strict policy

19
Law 4 The Players Equipment Headwear
20
Law 4 The Players Equipment SNS Glasses (March
2006)
  • Soccer Nova Scotia recognizes the use of safety
    sports glasses by players. Soccer Nova Scotia
    asks referees to use reasonable discretion with
    respect to Law 4 and Players non-compulsory
    equipment in regards to eye glasses. Specifically

21
Law 4 The Players Equipment SNS Glasses (March
2006)
  • Referees should allow players to wear non-sports
    glasses (street glasses) that have plastic
    frames, shatterproof plastic lenses and a safety
    strap that holds the glasses tightly to the head.
  • Referees should not allow wire rim glasses,
    plastic frames with pointed design features or
    glasses with wire supports for nosepieces.

22
Law 4 The Players Equipment SNS Glasses (March
2006)
  • Notwithstanding the above, Referees will not
    allow players to wear any equipment that in the
    opinion of the Referee is dangerous to the player
    or any other player.

23
Law 4 The Players Equipment Knee Braces (CSA)
  • FIFA Circular 863 states that the vast majority
    of commercially manufactured supports are safe to
    use. instance.
  • The major concern is not the hardness of the
    equipment alone, rather it should be whether
  • any part of it can cut or wound another player.
  • Any support must be safe for all players, and
    adequately padded if necessary.

24
Law 4 The Players Equipment Casts (CSA)
  • Players wearing a soft cast will be permitted to
    play if the cast does not present a danger to
    him/herself or any other player.
  • All casts must be adequately padded.
  • The referee (or a Supervisor of Officials if one
    has been appointed to the match) will make the
    final decision as to the acceptability of any
    cast.
  • Any player who uses a cast with the intent to
    intimidate or injure an opponent shall be
  • cautioned or sent off immediately.
  • Hard casts should not be permitted

25
Law 4 The Players Equipment Inspect the
Players!
  • CSA It is the referees responsibility to
    inspect players compulsory and non-compulsory
    equipment before each and every match, as well as
    that of substitutes when they first enter the
    field of play to take part in a match. (Law 5)
  • This means you have to inspect the players
  • It is not necessary to line them up, but it is
    necessary to inspect them

26
The Weather
27
The Weather
  • Rain
  • Standing water on the field could be unfair or
    worse, dangerous
  • Heat
  • Excessive heat can be dangerous to players and
    you (consider steps to ensure everyone is
    hydrated)
  • Lightning
  • Be aware of weather reports and concious of
    lightning
  • When you hear the thunder, you are in danger

28
Spectators, Players, Coaches
29
Players
  • You must deal players whose actions might
    inciting violence or create other troubles
  • Violent Conduct, Racial or other insulting
    comments must be dealt with by sending off the
    player involved
  • If you dont deal with this, it will impact game
    control.
  • Deal with warn, caution or dismiss as you deem
    appropriate

30
Coaches
  • Deal with persistent dissent from coaches, if you
    dont you risk loosing control on the field
  • Deal with any coaches that interact with the
    other team
  • Deal with any coaches that are abusive to their
    own team (especially in youth games!)
  • Deal with warn or dismiss as you deem
    appropriate

31
Spectators
  • Generally ignore them.
  • If they impact game control have the home team or
    facility staff remove them (if they dont go and
    are impacting game control then abandon the game)
  • Be aware of
  • Spectators interacting with players
  • Players interacting with spectators
  • Do your best to come these situations down and
    avoid having to send of players as a result of
    spectator interference!

32
Arrive on time to do everything you need to
before the game
  • Never be responsible for a late kickoff!
