MISCONDUCT RULE

Any member of a squad removed from a contest for poor sportsmanship conduct or a flagrant foul shall not participate in that sport in the next scheduled contest or in New York State Public High School Association tournament play.  Disqualifications from one season carry over to the next season of participation.

Any member of the squad who strikes, shoves, kicks, or makes other physical contact with the intent to do so to an official shall be expelled form the game immediately and banned from further participation in all sports for one year from the date of the offense.  NOTE: a member of the squad includes coach, player, manager, scorekeepers, timers, statisticians.

A player or coach who has been suspended from play may not be present on the school grounds where the contest is played.  There is no appeal to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association/Section XI Misconduct Rule. The official’s rule is final and not subject to question.

NOTE:  The Southold School District reserves the right to impose additional consequences which may result in a longer suspension from contests and/or dismissal from the team by the coach or administration.
