ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE TO SUSPENDED PLAYERS.
NCSP is a member of The Network, an association of Soccer Facilities including the Magdalena Ecke YMCA, Bradley Park San Marcos Soccer Arena, and the Escondido Sports Center. Any serious suspension at NCSP will also be enforced at all the other Network Facilities. For example, if a player is suspended for 8 weeks at the NCSP, he/she will also be suspended from the other Network facilities. Also, the Poway Sportsplex and NCSP share red card reports with each other.
PLAYERS ON TEAM ROSTER
Effective 3-20-02. Teams may only have a player on their team roster if that player has completed an NCSP Waiver of Liability form and the Manager on duty or Scorekeeper has personally checked it off. Plan ahead. Get your NCSP annual ID card inside the park office. No exceptions.
SAME SHIRT WITH A NUMBER
Effective 3-20-02. Each player on a team must have the SAME COLOR AND STYLE shirt with a permanent number attached to it that matches on the team roster in the NCSP office. The permanent number must be prominently displayed and match with the number on the team roster in the NCSP office. The number may not be tape or written in marker. A player will not be able to take the field and play without this reasonable step taken. Players may not share their uniform shirts.
The only exceptions to this are if you have a medical release that requires you to wear a different kind of shirt, it is a player’s very first game ever with the team, or you are the goalie. Don’t come to the soccer park without your uniform. No exceptions.
ALL PLAYERS UNDER 18 YEARS OLD MUST WEAR SHIN GUARDS
Effective 3-20-02. Players under 18 years old, on both the mini and stadium fields, must wear protective shin guards. The referee must be able to check a valid ID if deemed necessary to verify a player’s age. Bring your own shin guards – don’t expect the soccer park to supply them. No exceptions.
CO-ED Stadium RULES: Teams may have a maximum of three men on the field. Penalties must be served by the player who commits the foul unless committed by the goalie in which case, the gender serving the penalty will be the gender of the offending goalkeeper.
FOR CO-ED MONDAY STADIUM– All players must be at least 18 years old. Shoot-outs must be 3 women and 2 men and they must alternate for the sudden death shoot out. All players can score a maximum of 3 goals per game.
FOR CO-ED MONDAY MINI– No cap on goals for any players.
FOR CO-ED TUESDAY STADIUM- All players can score a maximum of 2 goals per game. We do not keep score in this league. There are no standings. Also, male players can’t take the ball away from female players in the back 75% of the field. However, they can intercept passes in that area originating from a female player.
FOR CO-ED TUESDAY MINI– All players can score a maximum of 3 goals per game.
FOR CO-ED SATURDAY STADIUM– No cap on goals for any players.
: Teams may have no more than two women between 25-29 years old on the roster. Those two women must be designated on roster and be able to show proof of age. ID other than the NCSP Player ID card might be required. No one under 25 years old is allowed to play in this league.
Players can score a maximum of 3 goals per game. When one team is winning by 4 goals, the losing team may add a seventh player onto the field. The extra player can stay on the field until they pull within two (2) goals. If a team is up by eight goals, it doesn’t mean that a team is allowed to add another player unless the winning team allows them. Also, if the winning team is up by four goals but the losing team doesn’t have a seventh player to add onto the field then the winning team is not required to remove a player.
: All players must be 35 years or older. No under age players in this league.
All Stadium and Mini field adult leagues have a Foul count format:
- Once any team accumulates six (6) fouls, a 2-minute penalty will be issued to the player that commits the 6th foul. A penalty shot will also be awarded. If a goal is scored then the team that was penalized can bring a player back on the field.
- All fouls, except unintentional handballs, will count towards the team’s total fouls.
- All players can still receive a straight 2-minute penalty for a serious foul.
- If the 6th team foul is a serious foul, in which a straight 2-minute penalty is issued, the team will not have to serve an additional 2-minute penalty. Team fouls will stay at 5 fouls.
- Any player that accumulates three 2-minute penalties, whether due to personal or team fouls, will automatically receive a red card for the rest of the game.
- After a team has reached their 6th foul, team fouls will reset back to zero (0) and all rules 1-5 still apply. If
These are the kind of fouls that will be counted:
–Pushing with any part of the body.
–Tripping, this includes hacking.
–Holding with hands, arms, or legs.
–Charging in a careless manner or from behind.
–Dangerous play, like boarding, elbowing, or slide tackling.
–Jumping at a player without playing the ball.
–Impeding or obstruction.
–Intentional handball or gaining advantage/possession by touching or stopping the ball in an unlawful way.

These are the kind of fouls that will not be counted toward the six fouls:
–Unintentional hand balls.
–Three line violations for the goalie.
–Pass backs to the keeper.
–Too many players on the field. When a team has too many players on the field then a 2-minute penalty is given. The 2-minute penalty is for the player wanting to come on.
–Delay of game.
–Dissent, either by words or gesture, toward the referee. This will get the player a straight 2-minute penalty.
ADULT LEAGUES-REGISTRATION AND POLICIES
Make sure that everyone arrives 20-30 minutes before the first scheduled game time, to pay team fee in FULL. All your players must have a valid NCSP Player ID card and be added to the team roster before they can play. The NCSP Player ID card is $30.00 annually. Lost NCSP Player ID cards are replaced for $5.00. All adult league players must be over the age of 18 – NO EXCEPTIONS. First game will not start until team registration is paid in FULL! NCSP offers players three convenient ways to pay in office, over the phone 858-748-4260, or online www.ncspsoccer.com.
Rosters must be finalized before the eighth, regular-season game. Players can add to a team anytime, except for the finals. Once a player plays one game with a team, he/she must stay on that team for the duration of that season. A maximum of 18 players are permitted on a roster. NCSP suggests putting 18 players on your roster in case of injury or attrition. However, players can only be added to the team roster if the office has a waiver on file for that player beforehand. Also, all players that intend to play must wear an identical game shirt/jersey with a visible, permanent number on the back or sleeve. The number a player wears must match with their name on the team roster. No duplicate numbers. The number cannot be applied with a marker or tape. No sharing or swapping jerseys/shirts. Subs may play without a number but wear an identical team shirt with either S1, S2, S3, or S4 permanently applied to the back or sleeve. New teams/players are allowed their first game of the season to fully comply.
Plan ahead – a proper game shirt is your players’ key to being able to play. Players not prepared will not be allowed to play.
Teams that are presently registered and playing have up to their last regular season game, to secure a place in the following season by giving a $200.00 deposit. We want you to stay but can’t assume you will be coming back. After the sixth game, registration for the league is open.
Unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated at NCSP and will result in a long suspension with no refund as described in NCSP’s rules.
The clock will start at your designated game time after a five-minute grace period. Warm up before you enter the playing field. Be ready to play at game time or miss valuable playing time! If the minimum number of players (2) is not present after the clock runs for 5 minutes then the game is called a forfeit. Schedules are written so that every team plays 8 games. If your team forfeits, you not only decrease the amount of games your team plays but also the amount the other team can play….please be considerate of this fact and make all your games. Teams not showing up for finals don’t forfeit any money except referee fees.
In case of a forfeit, the forfeiting team will lose their forfeit deposit and will be required to pay another refundable forfeit deposit before playing in the next game. Each time a team forfeits against you, and your team does not use the field, you will receive a credit of 1/8 of your team fee. (If a team has multiple forfeits within a season, multiple forfeit deposits will be required.) All forfeits are 0-10 losses by forfeiting team. Finals are considered a free game; teams are not penalized or credited for a forfeit.
