General Rules: Coaches with more than one team are encouraged to have alternates available to coach the team(s) when schedule conflicts arise; schedule variations will not be made to accommodate these coaches. A forfeit may be declared if a team fails to report to the field 10 minutes after the scheduled time. Deliberate forfeiture of a match may be cause for disqualification from the RMSG. A team may be disqualified after two forfeits. Players ejected from a match are ineligible to compete in the next scheduled game; this includes semi-final and final matches. Players will be ejected for the remainder of the tournament for extremely violent or vulgar behavior. All decisions of the referees, with regard to facts and the rules of the game, are final and appeals with regard to such matters will not be heard. All disputes will be settled by the Soccer Commissioners. RMSG reserves the right to combine age groups or cancel divisions.
