Updated 2019 Training Allocations

image55

Hi Collies, 


Due to a few minor changes required to training allocations, please find attached an updated allocations summary.


In summary, changes are as follows:


  • Under 16/2s have directly swapped with 11 Blue on the 10/11s field to eliminate the older boys kicking balls towards the 8/9s field, posing a safety issue to the younger kids.


  • Under 17/1 moving to the south end of Field 2 with the AAL coming to the North. This was done so that should the AALs not train, the team in the spare area in front of Field 2 can quickly slot into the spare area if necessary or the team on 8/9 can move across too (depending on whose turn it is to utilise the space on a rotating basis if the area is vacant)


  • The 8 White team has been included as I didn’t realise that I had not noted them on this part of my spreadsheet.

Any queries, let me know.


Thanks

Alison

MFA TEMPORARY DISMISSALS


Background

The Macarthur Football Association in association with the MDFRA implemented modified Temporary Dismissals in the 2018 season for junior games. This document sets out the modified application of Temporary Dismissals in MFA competitions for the 2019 season. The application is generally in accordance with the Laws of the Game subject to the modifications as per this document.


Application

Temporary dismissals will apply to all MFA Competitions including M-League. The Temporary dismissal period will be five (5) minutes for all junior matches (excluding SSG) up to and including U16. The Temporary Dismissal Period for all other competitions including M-League will be ten (10) minutes.


Implementation 

The Temporary Dismissals will be implemented as per the Guidelines for temporary dismissals (sin bins) as per the 2018-19 Laws of the Game (LOTG) subject to the following (the applicable guidelines from the LOTG are extracted at the end of this document.


  • Only cautions to players for dissent (YC) will be punished by a temporary dismissal.
  • A player who is cautioned for dissent receives a yellow card and is punished with a temporary dismissal.
  • A player who receives a second caution (YC) will receive a red card for receiving two cautions in the same match. That player takes no further part in the match and cannot be replaced.
  • A caution punished by temporary dismissal will be marked on the match card as a Y2 caution.
  • The temporary dismissal area will be the team’s technical area.

With the 2018 season around the corner it is an ideal time to remember that it is paramount that we all respect and allow the officials to adjudicate the game “At All Times” without interjection from coaches, parents or players.
