·       I will not publicly discuss any concerns/problems/decisions made by Coaches/Directors in front of WCUSC players. 

·       I understand that a high level of dedication is required, and players are expected to attend practices on a regular basis.  Coaches may schedule practices three times each week and teams can play matches on both Saturdays and Sundays during the season.

If I violate any of the above provisions, I understand that the following guidelines are used to establish the maximum punishment that can be levied by WCUSC:

·       Disrespect to an opposing player – 1 game suspension

·       Ejection from a game (first offense*) – 1 game suspension

The WCUSC, in its discretion, may hold a hearing to determine punishment different from the above guidelines. Further, I understand that the above guidelines do not exclude discipline by the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA). I understand that the Rules established by the NCYSA apply and supersede the Rules and any punishment for inappropriate play and behavior established by WCUSC.  *Offenses are tracked over a One (1) Seasonal Year period. **Un-served NCYSA suspensions or discipline penalties carry forward.

In the case of a parent’s ejection, the parent must leave the park/facility (out of sight and sound) in which the field is located and cannot return until 1 hour after his/her child’s team ‘s next match. If the parent does return before this time, an additional 2 game suspension may be incurred. 

By signing this form, I acknowledge that I have read the Rules and Policies of the Wayne County United Soccer Club. I agree to abide by those Rules and Policies including any fines and penalties. I consent and agree that WCUSC has the right to take photographs and video of my child during the course of the season.
