You Can Pay Your Fine Here

Red Cards and Missed Meeting Fines Paid Here

If you are a player, or coach, that has received a red card you can pay your fine here. Once we get confirmation of your payment we will mark you as paid on the Red Card Discipline report below. And once you have served your suspension email your Red Card Completion form to Matt at 2ndvp@gcfsoccer.com or to Mike Hyatt president@gcfsoccer.com. We will then update the discipline report below where then, and only then, will you be able to participate again.

If your club received a fine for missing a meeting, you can pay that here as well.

Red Card Process For Referee's

1) Fill out your game report and supplemental Report at the field. 2) Then when you get home go to our website and find the red button that says "Referee Red Card Forms"on the main page. 3) Click on "GCF/FYSA Game Report". 4) You will need to register with your name, etc. (this is a one-time thing) 5) Continue to fill out the game report information. Then hit submit. 6) Then you will go through the same steps 3-5 for the "GCF/FYSA Supplemental Report".

That's it, your done! Only for referee abuse will you keep the player/coach's pass and mail it, along with the rosters, game report, and supplemental to Matt Hutchinson, 1262 Lake Francis Dr., Apopka, Fl. 32712

* THE PROCESS FOR GETTING PAID HASN'T CHANGED. REGULAR GAME REPORTS STILL GO TO THE CLUB.

GCF Rules To Remember

1) All GCF games, no matter the age, get a 1-minute re-hydration break halfway through each half.

2) Check your schedule on modified games to see if it is a heading or non-heading game.

3) Offside is the build- out line  in a 9U and 10U game.

No Header Program

U.S. Soccer

As part of U.S. Soccer's Player Safety Campaign, U.S. Soccer unveiled the U.S. Soccer Concussion Initiative that provides guidelines that have been implemented since January of 2016.

The information contained in the initiative is intended to give U.S. Soccer Organization Members, as well as players, parents, team/club staff and coaches and referees, guidance and direction when dealing with head injuries and potential head injuries during soccer participation.

Included in the U.S. Soccer Concussion Initiative are specific changes to rules on substitutions and heading for certain age groups. Those changes included:

  • Modify substitution rules to allow players who may have suffered a concussion during games to be evaluated without penalty
  • Eliminating heading for children 10 and under
    • Please note that U11 is listed in the U.S. Soccer Concussion Initiative document because U11 players can be 10 years old at the beginning of the season
  • Limiting the amount of heading in practice for children between the ages of 11 and 13

In addition to the safety initiatives, the following modified rule should be implemented:

  • When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense.  If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then play should continue.

For more information, please refer to the frequently asked questions, which should help clarify questions regarding the new initiatives.
