Procedure for restarts after an injury are as follows:
For Spring 2021 Season disregard this procedure as there are NO drop balls due to CoVid protocols.  Follow CoVid protocols.
1) Drop ball where the ball was when play was stopped.  1 or more players may participate.


2) If the ball is in the penalty box when play is stopped, perform the dropped ball procedure outside the box parallel to where the ball was at the stoppage, unless the ball was below the 6 yard line.  In that case, move the ball outside the box even with the 6 yard line.

3) If the GK has possession of ball when there is a stoppage for an injury, the correct restart is an indirect free kick for that keepers team, where the keeper possessed the ball. We do not drop the ball for the keeper to pick up nor give the keeper the ball to punt or throw.


​New Red Card/Disqualification Procedures

To All Officials,
 - If you issue a yellow card you MUST fill out a game report on our website, http://www.nassaucountysoccerofficialsassociation.com/forms-and-documents.html, and submit it.  One official can submit all the yellow cards.  The report will automatically be sent to Tom Cully once you submit it.  If you have a non-league game, yellow cards still MUST be reported.  DO NOT CALL BOCES TO REPORT YELLOW CARDS.
 -  if you issue a red card BOTH officials MUST fill out a game report on our website, http://www.nassaucountysoccerofficialsassociation.com/forms-and-documents.html.  The report will automatically be sent to Tom Cully once you submit it.  It would be a good idea for the officials to call Tom as well to discuss the red card or cards before submitting the unsportsmanlike/disqualification report to BOCES.
 - BOTH officials MUST then submit an unsportsmanlike/disqualification report to BOCES, which can be found on the BOCES Sportspak website, where you retrieve your assignments and where your availability is.  Please make sure you and your partner discuss the details of the red card and all the facts are correct before submitting this report. There is no blank form. 
 - Here is how you access the form.  Under officials, click on "Unsportsmanlike Form" (it's in the same pull down menu as "Assignments"). You must enter your username and password.  Once you are in, you select the date of the game on the calendar and your game will come up.  Then you need to click onto the game number, bottom left, and the form will come up.  Fill out your report and submit. It’s simple as that.
