7 Sanctions

Not every minor misconduct should be sanctioned immediately. It is advisable to issue a verbal warning first. Through the captain, the player or official should be made aware of his misconduct and warned that a sanction will be imposed the next time he or another member of the team misbehaves.

All team members, players and officials, may be warned or sanctioned. Disrespectful or insulting behavior can occur between players, teams, players and officials, and between players and the spectators. In all cases, the referee must impose warnings or sanctions according to his assessment.
