Penalties, Suspensions & Disputes
Similar to other sports, yellow cards symbolise an official warning to players, coaches and other members of a team. Yellow cards can only be presented by a Flaktest volunteer and/or staff, and commonly only presented during an incident during a match.
In the unlikelihood that a yellow card is presented, details of the incident are recorded and presented to the appropriate parties. Using the dispute process, players and other team members can protest a yellow card after the game is complete. Opting to follow up during a match may bring about a red card and/or suspension.
If a serious incident has occurred while in match or communicating within the community, a red card may be presented to a player or team member. A person who is presented with a Red Card can not participate in the upcoming match.
