Important dates

The MSPSP Spring 2022 season will officially begin March 18th and ends June 10th* (matches can be played post-season if approved, contact MSPSP if applicable).

As a reminder, MSYSA Game Day Processes & other MSYSA Return-To-Play Guidelines are no longer required. 

MSPSP Program Changes: The following program-specific changes have been implemented for the Fall 2021-Spring 2022 MSPSP season.

-Score & Misconduct Reporting Changes: Scores are to still be reported by the winner (or home team in a draw) into GotSport via the schedule page (on the MSPSP website) or via the user / team account. Scores are no longer called in via phone and must be done online with a computer or smartphone. A guide on how to report scores is in the FAQ section below.

Teams will need the PIN # (2022) and match # (obtained from the MSPSP Match Card) to input scores. Scores CAN be input by either team, but the responsibilities remain to the winner (or home team in a draw) to report scores. Consistent failure to report scores can result in fines issued to the team.

Reporting misconduct (cards) works the same way – teams will input the PIN # and match # that will take the user to a form page to complete the match info as needed. Misconduct (cards) are to be reported by teams in GotSport, however referees will also submit their match report directly to MSPSP that MSPSP uses for disciplinary issues. Reporting misconduct ensures your players are listed as ‘suspended’ in your future match reports after receiving a suspension (cards). Suspension / ineligible players will be automatically updated in GotSport after the player serves their suspension at their following match (per GotSport) once that match score has been reported. For example, a player who received a red card and is serving a 1-match suspension for a match on Friday will be marked again as eligible once Fridays’ match has been reported as complete (score called in).

If there are any errors with reporting scores or misconduct, notify MSPSP.

-SportsForms Online Match Reports: Teams will print the match card (standard version that shows both teams) out of GotSport and bring to the field for the referees. The referees will complete the match card and submit into SportsForms. Teams (head coaches) will receive a copy of these reports via email. No post-game signature is required. Teams will no longer provide referees envelopes to send match reports into the MSPSP Office, as match reports are submitted online.

Thank the referees and clean up the field and bench area. You can take a photo of the match report if desired. The referees will complete the match report and submit online via SportsForms.

-Protest Process Changes: The process to protest matches has changed with the update to match reports.

Teams no longer write 'PROTEST' on the match report. The process now is to notify MSPSP directly. Depending on the circumstance of the protest, matches can be protested prior, during, or post match.
-If you are protesting due to what you consider dangerous conditions or situations, you would not play the match.
-If you are protesting due to passcarding, match length, ineligible players, field size, you would play the match.

You should notify the center referee (either pre-match, during, or post depending on the situation) as a courtesy and for them to make note in the match report.
What can be protested? Misapplication of the laws of the game (FIFA), misapplication of league rules (MSPSP), ineligible players, incorrect field size, club passcarding violations, match length, dangerous playing conditions (facility). 

What cannot be protested? Cards, offsides, goals, ejections, referee discretionary calls, etc

>Notify MSPSP via email summary
>MSPSP compiles match details and notifies MSPSP Disciplinary Committee
>MSPSP Disciplinary Committee makes determination and sets outcome, possibilities of replay, forfeit, void, fines, etc.
>MSPSP notifies teams / clubs of MSPSP Disciplinary Committee’s determination.

-MSPSP Disciplinary Committee & Suspensions (Players, Team Staff):
-All MSPSP Red Cards are automatically a 1-match suspension (league game), unless otherwise determined by the MSPSP Disciplinary Committee.
-All double-yellow card offenses are automatically a 1 match suspension.
-If a player receives 3 yellow cards over the course of the season, they are to then serve a 1-match suspension the following match (does not apply in double-yellow offenses leading to send-offs).
-If a player receives 6 yellow cards over the course of the season, they are to then serve a 1-match suspension the following match (does not apply in double-yellow offenses leading to send offs).

Offenses for Violent Conduct, Abusive Language, Serious Foul Play, Spitting, etc can carry additional suspension length. If a player is determined by the MSPSP Disciplinary Committee to be additionally suspended in match length, MSPSP will communicate this decision to the team / club.

Team Officials who are sent-off (either via direct send off or by double-yellow) are subject to the MSPSP Team Official Send Off Policy and may result in a $250 fine issued to the club. This includes straight-reds and double-yellows. Subsequent send-offs over the course of the season can accumulate.  Additionally, Team Officials can receive cards on behalf of their spectators; it is important to understand team officials are responsible for their parents and are expected to promote a positive atmosphere for players and spectators. When a team official is sent off, it is an automatic 1-match suspension to be served immediately.

-MSPSP Sportsmanship: We will be monitoring sportsmanship provided on behalf of the match reports submitted by referees in a rating system composed by the MSPSP Disciplinary Committee.
-Teams with excellent sportsmanship are likely to be acknowledged / awarded.
-Teams demonstrating continued poor sportsmanship or behavior may have team officials / club staff required to attend a MSPSP Disciplinary Committee hearing.
