Submitting Incident Reports

For most games in San Francisco, if you issue a caution or send off a player during a match, when you file your game report, you also need to submit an incident report. The incident report form must be completed in the event of any disqualification, penalty for flagrant unsportsmanlike conduct, "bench fouls," or other misconduct of a serious nature committed by anyone associated with a contest. The incident report form may also be used to report unsafe conditions of a facility, lack of cooperation or concern, or other incidents which, in your opinion, merit the attention of the Commissioner.

When does the incident report have to be filed?
You are required to submit your SFSRA game report within 24 hours of your match. However, you must report cautions and send-offs the same day of the match. Steve Valdespino is required to report cautions and send-offs to the school district at 8am the following day, so you must file it right after your match. If you are unable to file your report the same day, just ask one of your ARs to do it for you.

How do I file the incident report?
